What Are Clear Braces?
Clear braces, also known as clear aligners, are a modern orthodontic treatment option designed to straighten teeth and correct bite issues discreetly. Unlike traditional metal braces with brackets and wires, clear braces consist of a series of transparent, custom-made aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for a specified period, typically around two weeks, before progressing to the next set in the series.
Clear braces are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic material, making them comfortable to wear and virtually invisible when placed over the teeth. They work by applying gentle, controlled pressure on the teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired position. The treatment process involves regular appointments with your orthodontist to monitor progress and receive new sets of aligners.
Who Needs Clear Braces?
Clear braces are a versatile orthodontic option suitable for a wide range of individuals who desire straighter teeth and improved dental alignment. They are often recommended for various orthodontic issues, and many people can benefit from this discreet and effective treatment. Here’s who typically needs clear braces:
Mild to Moderate Teeth Misalignment: Clear braces are an excellent choice for individuals with mild to moderate crowding, spacing, or misalignment issues. They can effectively address these concerns.
Overcrowding: If your teeth are crowded and do not have enough space to align properly, clear braces can gradually create space and straighten them.
Spacing or Gaps: Clear braces can close gaps or spaces between teeth, providing a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Underbites and Overbites: Clear aligners can be used to correct underbites (lower front teeth protruding ahead of upper front teeth) and overbites (upper front teeth overlapping the lower front teeth).
Crossbites: Clear braces can treat crossbites, a condition where upper and lower teeth do not align properly when biting.
Orthodontic Relapse: If you had previous orthodontic treatment and experienced a relapse, where your teeth shifted out of alignment, clear braces can help realign them.
Adults and Teens: Clear braces are popular among both adults and teenagers who prefer a more discreet orthodontic option compared to traditional metal braces.
Patients with Aesthetic Concerns: Individuals who are concerned about the appearance of traditional metal braces often choose clear aligners for a more discreet treatment option.
Those with Oral Hygiene Concerns: Clear braces are removable, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing without brackets and wires in the way.
Patients Seeking Convenience: Clear aligners require fewer in-office visits for adjustments, making them a convenient choice for busy individuals.
The Benefits of Clear Braces
Clear braces, also known as clear aligners, offer a range of benefits for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. These benefits include:
Discreet Appearance: Clear braces are virtually invisible when worn, making them an ideal choice for individuals who prefer a more discreet orthodontic option. You can straighten your teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.
Comfortable Fit: Clear aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic that fits comfortably over your teeth. They do not have sharp brackets or wires that can cause irritation or discomfort to the cheeks and gums.
Removability: Clear braces are removable, allowing you to take them out for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. This convenience makes it easier to maintain proper oral care and enjoy your favorite foods during treatment.
Improved Oral Hygiene: Because clear aligners can be removed, you can brush and floss your teeth more effectively than with traditional braces. This helps maintain better oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic treatment.
Fewer Office Visits: Clear braces typically require fewer in-office visits compared to traditional braces. You’ll receive a set of aligners in advance and only need to visit your orthodontist periodically to monitor progress.
Customised Treatment: Clear aligners are customised to fit your unique dental structure and orthodontic needs. Each set of aligners is designed to guide your teeth into their desired positions.
Predictable Results: Advanced technology and treatment planning allow for more predictable outcomes. Our orthodontist can show you a digital simulation of your treatment progress and final results before you begin.
Versatility: Clear braces can effectively treat various orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and more. They are suitable for both mild and moderate cases.
Less Disruption to Daily Life: Clear aligners cause minimal disruption to your daily activities. They don’t require adjustments or emergency visits for broken brackets or wires.
Aesthetically Pleasing: Clear aligners offer an aesthetically pleasing solution for those who want to improve their smile without the appearance of metal braces.
Comfortable Eating: You can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions since you can remove the aligners during meals.
Enhanced Confidence: Achieving a straighter smile often leads to increased self-confidence and improved self-esteem.
The Process of Getting Clear Braces
The process of getting clear braces in Swallownest at Anderson & Broadberry Dental Care involves several key steps to achieve a straighter and more aligned smile:
Initial Consultation: The journey begins with an initial consultation with our orthodontist who specialises in clear braces. During this appointment, you’ll discuss your orthodontic goals, concerns, and any questions you may have.
Comprehensive Examination: Our orthodontist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including taking X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth. These diagnostic tools help create a precise treatment plan.
Digital Treatment Plan: Advanced technology is used to create a digital treatment plan that outlines the step-by-step movement of your teeth. You’ll get to see a virtual representation of how your smile will change throughout the treatment process.
Custom Aligner Fabrication: Based on the digital treatment plan, a series of custom-made clear aligners will be fabricated specifically for you. Each set of aligners is designed to gradually move your teeth closer to their desired positions.
Fitting Your Aligners: Once your aligners are ready, you’ll return to our clinic in Swallownest, Sheffield to receive your first set. The orthodontist will ensure that they fit comfortably and provide instructions on when and how to wear them.
Wearing Your Aligners: You’ll wear each set of aligners for a specified period, typically about two weeks, before advancing to the next set. It’s essential to wear them for the recommended 20-22 hours a day for the best results.
Monitoring Progress: Periodic check-up appointments with the orthodontist are scheduled to monitor your progress. New sets of aligners are provided during these visits, and any necessary adjustments are made.
Maintaining Oral Hygiene: Clear braces are removable, allowing you to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Good oral hygiene is essential throughout the treatment process to prevent issues like cavities and gum disease.
Lifestyle Convenience: Clear aligners offer the convenience of being able to remove them for eating, drinking, and special occasions, providing flexibility in your daily life.
Completion of Treatment: Once you’ve gone through all the sets of aligners, you’ll have achieved your desired tooth alignment. The orthodontist will discuss post-treatment care, which may include the use of retainers to maintain your newly aligned smile.
Enjoying Your Beautiful Smile: With the completion of your clear braces treatment, you can enjoy the benefits of a straighter and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Why Existing Tooth Colour and Stains Are Critical for Tooth Whitening?
I recently had to have root canal , Gillene and Sharon were great. They made sure I was ok all the way through each appointment, and put me at ease with what was a very long procedure.Gillene is very professional and good at what she does and Sharon is friendly and helps to try and keep your mind off whats happening.
I was very nervous and the dentist put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable. She explained every step of the treatment so there was no surprises. Did everything in her power to help me and am very grateful for all she did and recommend to everyone. Thank you very much.
I joined this dental practice last month after succumbing to pain and a broken back tooth. It's been (i'm ashamed to say) a good few years since i've had a check up, and from my first appointment i felt totally at ease, all the staff are lovely. Had a mighty filling today, and Sinead and the girls (sorry i didn’t catch their names) were brilliant! So nice to have found somewhere like this. Highly recommend!
Been to this dentist since I’ve grown up, many years, however recently had Sophie and Sharon doing my treatment, I had a extraction treatment and both of these dentists put me at ease, they helped my nerves, talked me through the process and was very professional and gave advice on quitting smoking and help. credit to them due. Thank you Sharon and Sophie.
From emergency appointments to fillings and root canal treatment, each visit I’ve had to Anderson and Broadberry has always been positive. This has been a result of the professionalism and genuine care for patients from the members of staff that work at the practice. I’d like to specifically thank Sophie and Sharon for making each appointment go smoothly keeping me calm when carrying out dental procedures and ensuring they’re as pain free as possible.
Been coming here for years and have always been satisfied with the treatment and staff whom are all really friendly and professional too . On a recent visit I paid for some treatment which didn’t work how it should have , but I want to say thank you for all the help in rectifying the problem from all the staff . I would also like to mention a gentleman called Iain cowie whom kept in touch through both text and calls to see if everything was working out as it should be . Once again thank you for the professional treatment which I received.
Absolutely 1st class care, treatment & friendliness.I am not easy to please usually but for the 1st time in a lot of yrs i found the dentist a real pleasureable experience. I must say Ioin & Caroline are a lovely advert for this dentist on the reception.Thank you Selina & Emily for taking care of my awkward surgery in a very patient, kind & professional way
Had to have a filling replaced and another tooth repaired. The dentist Gilene was really nice and caring about how I was doing during the procedure with the help of Kelly assisting they made for a pleasant visit. Caroline and Iain on reception are friendly and welcoming all adding up to a wonderful dental practice. Thank you.
Really pleased with my first visit and appointment at this dentistry. From the booking of the appointment to the appointment itself it was a great experience. The consultation itself was extremely professional andvery personable and certainly made me feel at ease. Although I have got procedures upcoming, I know exactly what the state of my teeth is, what to expect and how to prevent further complications in the future. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist in the area!
Took my 12 year old daughter for emergency app yesterday. Had to have a tooth removed, all I can say is how fabulous the team were. Sophie and Sharon cannot thank you both enough. My daughter was so at ease, you are a credit to the practice. Thank you to you and all the team, thank you to Kacey on reception, brought a huge smile to our arrival. Cannot recommend your practice enough 😃
Finally found myself a dentist after years of struggling and I can honestly say I'm so glad it is with Anderson and Broadberry.I have had some work done recently and I have to say it's been the best experience of a dentist I have encountered ever.Great work, put at ease from the beginning and delighted with the outcome.Sinead and Nicole were/are tremendous and I'm very satisfied with my Dentist.
