No matter your age, it is never too late to straighten your teeth. You may not have been able to afford braces when you were younger, or you may have been putting it off because you don’t like the idea of traditional braces.
Clear aligners are a great alternative to braces for adults and active teens. These aligners are made of a clear material that fits snugly against your teeth. They are practically invisible to other people, and after a while, you may forget that you are even wearing them. If you need to eat or to clean them you just take them out and slip them back in. They are easy to clean, and since you don’t wear them when you eat, you won’t damage them with your favorite foods, no matter what you like to eat. The aligners are made from models of your teeth. You wear each set for about two weeks before switching to a new set. While you wear them, they slowly move your teeth into your proper position.
