Removable orthodontics are increasingly popular and it’s no wonder! They offer a host of benefits for patients of all ages with all kinds of orthodontic prescriptions. Here are just some of the advantages you can enjoy if you opt for a removable brace:
With a removable brace, you can enjoy much greater flexibility than with a fixed brace, as you can take your brace out whenever you want to. It is important to stress that you should wear your brace according to the instructions from your dentist and you shouldn’t spend long periods of time without wearing your brace. However, many patients enjoy the freedom of being able to take their brace out quickly and simply.
Removable braces are very convenient because they have minimal impact on day to day actions that might be made more difficult by wearing a fixed brace, such as cleaning your teeth and eating. With a removable brace, you simply take the brace out, eat your dinner normally and then pop your brace back in.
Improved oral hygiene
With a removable brace, you can continue to clean your teeth in the same way as you did before you started treatment. It is much easier to clean your teeth without a brace in place than it is to try and steer a toothbrush around brackets and wires. This improves oral hygiene and reduces the risk of dental diseases, including tooth decay and gum disease. It’s also very easy to keep the brace clean as you can simply remove it and rinse it out.
Many removable braces offer incredibly natural looking and discreet aesthetics that will help you to feel more confident during the treatment process. Invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, straighten the teeth without any impact on the look of the smile. On the other hand, the Inman Aligner is not invisible, but it offers a much less noticeable aesthetic than fixed braces.
Removable braces tend to be more comfortable than fixed braces because they don’t have bands or wires that need tightening and many contain no metal parts.
