Our NY Clear Braces team includes an Orthodontist working with 16 cosmetic dentists and specialists in one high-end office. In particular we offer fast, fixed or removable cosmetic braces for adults. Clear braces are also known as invisible braces. Clear braces may refer to fixed braces that are attached to teeth with cosmetic white brackets and white wire. Otherwise clear braces may refer to removable braces or trays. Removable clear braces brands include Invisalign and Clear Correct. Furthermore Faster Braces refers to the duration of treatment rather than whether the braces are fixed or removable. However fixed braces generally move teeth faster than removable braces. Before and after photos on invisible braces clear braces and faster braces performed in our NYC Braces Orthodontics office.
Case selection is important for Clear Braces like Invisalign or Clear Correct
This medieval-looking device is a Palatal Expander still currently used in orthodontics to widen the posterior smile in children.
Contrary to popular “wisdom” Invisalign devices will not work in adults when trying to accomplish similar movement. In fact it could cause an unhealthy tipping of the teeth that pushes the teeth outside the jaw bone.
People should see an orthodontist for braces and not a dentist who performs orthodontics.
