What Are Invisible Braces?
Invisible braces are made of clear, solid plastic and can have the same dramatic results for orthodontic patients as metal or ceramic braces. They are thin plastic trays that fit perfectly over your teeth to gradually correct the alignment of your smile. A great example of invisible braces is the increasingly popular brand, Invisalign®.
How Do Invisible Braces Work?
Rather than using brackets and metal wires, invisible braces correct dental alignment issues using a series of durable plastic trays that fit over the teeth. The plastic trays are able to gently guide the teeth to shift into a more optimal position. Every 4 to 6 weeks, the trays are updated to keep the patient’s progression on track until a successful result is achieved.
Because these plastic trays are not permanently installed in the mouth, they can be removed when eating or for routine dental hygiene. Also, patients are able to clean invisible braces easily by removing them and rinsing with water.
Benefits of Invisible Braces
Invisible braces are the least invasive orthodontic treatment offered. If you’re considering getting braces, you should speak to your orthodontist to learn more about the benefits of invisible braces, including:
- Almost completely unnoticeable
- No permanent installation required
- No food or drink restrictions
- Easy to remove and clean
- Less irritation to gums and tongue
The clear, durable plastic that makes up invisible braces does not need to be installed in the mouth the way metal braces do. This means invisible braces can be removed, cleaned easily, cause less irritation, and do not restrict a patient’s diet.

Possible Drawbacks to Invisible Braces
Of course, no product is perfect and invisible braces do suffer from a few drawbacks. Because they use a smooth plastic surface, they can generally only be worn by those patients without major tooth spacing problems. Severe issues, like tipped or rotated teeth, or dramatic spacing between teeth, simply won’t benefit from clear braces. They’ll need to be treated with a product that can adjust each tooth individually, in more versatile ways than plastic can handle.
As an alternative, wearers of clear braces can be asked to wear things called “buttons,” which are used to treat severe tooth problems otherwise out of reach of invisible braces products. While these do make the product more versatile, they’re generally not “invisible.” This can lead to an uneven appearance when smiling that some patients simply do not find attractive.
