Dr. Debra Cook and her staff at your local Rancho Santa Margarita, CA orthodontics office are proud to offer a wide range of treatments to meet the needs and lifestyles of our patients. Dr. Cook is often asked about the clear braces we use, Clarity Advanced by 3M. Therefore, we decided to dedicate this blog post to these braces that are a revolutionary leap forward in orthodontic treatment.

Overview of Clarity Advanced Clear Braces

Mission Viejo Orthodontist Clear BracesDr. Cook understands that some people, especially adults, are hesitant to commit to orthodontic treatment because of the appearance of braces. That's why we offer clear braces for our aesthetically conscious patients. With Clarity Advanced, patients are offered brilliant aesthetics in a low-profile nature. These braces make use of ultra-small translucent brackets that are made of an innovative, new ceramic material for an attractive appearance.

The brackets used with Clarity Advanced are designed to blend in with one's natural tooth color. These brackets are resistive to staining and discoloration throughout the treatment process. The durable brackets are created using an injection-molding process and they feature ample under tie-wing space for flexible treatment and ligation. 

Enhanced Comfort 

Clarity Advanced ceramic brackets feature a dome-shaped design with smooth, rounded corners. The small size of the brackets minimizes soft tissue contact so that the patient has the ultimate level of comfort throughout the treatment process. Regular metal braces often rub and irritate your gums, but when Clarity Advanced braces are used, this irritation is greatly minimized. There are no metal components used with these braces, making them more attractive and comfortable with much less soft tissue contact.

Virtually Unnoticeable 

When you are wearing Clarity Advanced braces, most people won't even notice that you are straightening your teeth. This is because the translucent ceramic material blends with your teeth and will resist staining.  And, because these braces feature a small, low-profile design, they are virtually unnoticeable. This makes these braces ideal for patients who are looking for the confidence and freedom to smile on any occasion. When these braces are worn, there's no need to hide behind a closed-lip smile. Clarity Advanced ceramic braces give you the confidence you need to show off your smile both during and after treatment!

Clarity Advanced is a unique system that is easily applied and removed by your orthodontist so that you can focus on living your life and not on the process of having your braces taken on and off. This technology and cutting-edge innovation is by 3M Unitek, a name that orthodontists all over the world trust for their patients who want a low-profile, comfortable way to improve their smiles.
