Clear Braces Versus Traditional Braces

Changes in appearance may be a contributing factor that cause adults who live in or work near Midtown Manhattan to choose NOT to get braces. Dr. Ingrid Barillas and Dr. Rodolfo Sanchez of Dental Specialists of New York have a solution; get fitted for clear braces! Invisalign brand clear aligners treat misaligned teeth and jaws in a new and improved way.

Dr. Barillas, Dr. Sanchez, and the team at Dental Specialists of New York know that adults who delay necessary orthodontic treatment may be damaging their mouth and negatively affecting their overall health. Traditional metal braces are very visible and may cause problems when talking, laughing, and when “saying ‘Cheese!’”.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are made of clear ceramic materials, and they attach to the teeth in the same way that traditional metal braces do. They do require a bit more care due to their more fragile nature. But the low-visibility nature of this treatment option appeals to adults who are avoiding orthodontic care in Midtown Manhattan because of the appearance of metal braces.

What are the advantages?

Clear braces offer many advantages over other orthodontic treatment systems such as Invisalign clear plastic tray aligners. They provide an invisible way to correct several different types of severe or complex orthodontic issues.

Patients in Midtown Manhattan being treated with clear braces will be guaranteed to complete their treatment on time and with exceptional results. They are also a great alternative to traditional metal braces because they have fewer metal parts, so they are less likely to cause painful poking or irritation.

How much do they cost?

Clear braces can range in price. The cost of orthodontic treatment with clear braces in Midtown Manhattan is often comparable to treatment with traditional metal braces. Dr. Barillas and Dr. Sanchez work with his patients to customize orthodontic treatment plans that address price, length of treatment, and insurance coverage options. The team at Dental Specialists of New York participate with several popular insurance plans and can offer their patients different payment options.
