Clear aligners offer numerous benefits compared to orthodontic treatment with braces. They’re not necessarily “better,” because both have their uses, but clear braces in St. Paul, MN are definitely more convenient.  

At Brimhall Dentistry, we offer SureSmile, a clear aligner treatment system that is similar to Invisalign. If you’re an adult or older teen, you’ll appreciate the convenience of straightening your teeth with clear aligners, because they’re designed specifically with your lifestyle in mind.

Smooth, Plastic Clear Braces Offer Greater Comfort

The most significant advantage of choosing SureSmile orthodontics in 55116 is that you don’t have to wear brackets and wires on your teeth. The clear aligners are made of smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear.

But there are several other benefits to clear aligner treatment that make them such a popular choice for people who want a straighter smile.

Your Orthodontic Treatment Is Your Secret

Adults who want a straighter smile don’t want everyone to know they’re having treatment, and with SureSmile clear aligners, they don’t have to. The aligners are crystal-clear and nearly invisible when worn, so most people won’t notice them.

You'll Be Able to Enjoy the Foods You Love

Bracket and wire braces require a lot of upkeep and require you to eliminate certain foods from your diet. SureSmile orthodontics in 55116 are removable, so there are no restrictions on the foods you can eat. Just be sure to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in your mouth.

Brushing and Flossing Are Easy

It can be a challenge to get your teeth as clean as they need to be with brackets and wires on your teeth. Since you can remove your clear aligners, brushing and flossing your teeth thoroughly is easy.
