Clear braces

Clear braces in Fredericksburg and Stafford

Undergoing orthodontic treatment, such as braces can offer a wide range of improvements for a patient’s overall oral health. However, many teen and adult patients want nearly invisible braces options. At Rappahannock Orthodontics, we understand your concerns and are proud to offer a discreet way to improve your smile with ceramic clear braces near you.

Who’s a good fit for clear braces?

Our clear braces for adults and teens may be a good fit if you’re a teen looking for a fast and inconspicuous treatment option or an adult who wants to straighten their teeth without changing their professional appearance. Our clear braces in Fredericksburg and Stafford use ceramic brackets, tooth-colored elastics and archwire to blend in with your teeth, making it hard for others to tell you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!

Patients experiencing moderate spacing and crowding issues can also benefit from clear braces. During your free consultation with one of our orthodontists, they will examine your smile and bite to make an accurate treatment recommendation.

If your family orthodontist determines you have a more severe bite issue or misalignment, they may suggest traditional braces instead. This suggestion is for your safety, as clear bracket braces may break under the high pressure of a misaligned bite due to the slightly more fragile ceramic material. Choosing the best option for your needs will allow you to continue your treatment as intended without the risk of delays.

Clear braces vs. metal braces

Our clear braces for adults and teens straighten your teeth similarly to traditional metal braces, the most prominent difference being the material used. One of our orthodontists will attach ceramic brackets, elastics and archwire to your teeth. Like metal braces, the archwire applies constant pressure to the teeth to slowly move them into a straighter position. We’ll tighten the archwire whenever you visit our office in Fredericksburg or Stafford to ensure your teeth continue moving into the correct spots.

After our orthodontist removes your clear ceramic braces, you will receive a retainer to ensure your teeth remain in the proper position. No matter what type of braces you had, it’s essential to wear your retainer after braces for the recommended amount of time to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

How much are clear braces?

Clear braces costs vary between patients based on factors such as the severity of your orthodontic issues and your insurance. It’s important to remember that your clear bracket braces are an investment in your health. Receiving clear ceramic braces now may prevent the need for more intensive procedures such as tooth extractions or dentures in the future.
