Dr. Harold Slutsky Provides Discrete, Comfortable Clear Braces to Philadelphia and Bensalem, PA
Typically, the greatest aversion that young adults have to the news that they will need orthodonture is fear of how braces will alter their appearance. Some patients are so adverse to the idea they may opt to continue living with misaligned or gapped teeth. Although this perception of braces is widespread, it’s quite outdated. Such is especially true for patients in Philadelphia and Bensalem, PA. At his orthodontic practices, Dr. Harold Slutsky gives patients the option of traditional mental braces, as well as virtually invisible, discrete and comfortable clear braces.
Clear braces are not to be confused with plastic tooth aligners, which are also available through Dr. Slutsky’s Philadelphia and Bensalem practices. Clear braces are made from advanced dental materials, including clear ceramic components. The ceramic takes the place of the metallic, stainless steel brackets that make conventional braces so noticeable. The result is a more cohesive smile appearance, which is unnoticeable from a distance and in most photography. Most of Dr. Slutsky’s patients have found them to be much more cosmetic than metal braces and experience minimal to no gum irritation. While they are more discrete and comfortable, clear braces come at no sacrifice to strength and are just as stable as traditional metal braces.
Clear braces can be used on most orthodontic patients and require the same length of time to correct teeth as is needed with metal braces. They’re especially appealing for teens and young adults who are seeking a straighter smile, but without the look of stainless steel braces. Whether or not you’re a candidate for clear braces can be determined when you visit Dr. Slutsky’s orthodontic practices in Philadelphia and Bensalem, PA.
