Transform Your Smile With Clarity

At Northview Orthodontics, clear braces can transform your smile with a more discreet appearance. Ideal for adults and teens alike, clear braces with Dr. Jason Klingler provide the strength of traditional metal braces while blending in with the natural color of your teeth.

All About Clear Braces

Clear braces in Albuquerque function similarly to traditional metal braces but stand out due to their ceramic or clear plastic brackets that are much less noticeable.

These brackets are attached to the front of the teeth and connected by a wire, which can also be frosted or tooth-colored to minimize visibility. Clear braces are designed to be resilient and subtle, providing an attractive alternative to metal braces without sacrificing performance.

How Clear Braces Work

The treatment process with clear braces is much like that of traditional braces. After an initial consultation with Dr. Klingler and detailed imaging of your teeth, we custom-fit the ceramic brackets to your teeth.

These brackets hold the archwire that adjusts your teeth into alignment. You'll visit our Albuquerque office for adjustments every four to six weeks, during which we'll tighten the wire and ensure your teeth are moving correctly.

Who Are Candidates for Clear Braces?

Clear braces are a great choice for teenagers and adults who are self-conscious about wearing braces and want a less noticeable option. They’re great for correcting most orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and bite misalignments.

However, due to their delicate materials, Dr. Klingler believes that clear braces are best for patients who are committed to maintaining them.

Benefits of Clear Braces

  • Aesthetics: Clear braces are much less visible than metal braces, making them a popular choice for those who prefer a more discreet look.
  • Confidence: With clear braces, many patients feel more confident in social and professional settings.
  • Effectiveness: They offer the same level of effectiveness in correcting dental issues as their metal counterparts.

Understanding the Stakes

While the aesthetic advantages of clear braces are significant, it’s important to consider their care requirements. The ceramic brackets can stain if not maintained properly, so excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits are crucial. Additionally, clear braces can be slightly more fragile than metal braces and may require more attentive care to avoid damage.

Maintenance Tips

  • Brushing & Flossing: Brush after every meal and floss daily to prevent staining and maintain overall oral health.
  • Avoid Certain Foods & Drinks: Beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine can stain ceramic braces, and hard or sticky foods can damage them.
  • Regular Orthodontic Visits: Frequent check-ups at our Albuquerque office allow us to manage your treatment progress and address any issues promptly.
