Benefits of Simpli5 Clear Braces
The Simpli5 system is a wonder of modern orthodontics that utilizes the technology of clear braces to give faster treatment times for minor cases of cosmetic tooth misalignment. Benefits of Simpli5 Clear Braces include:
- Speed: It takes only 3-4 weeks to get your first aligner and treatment only takes 5 months
- Comfort: No metal wires or brackets.
- Transparency: clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible
- No diet or hygiene restrictions: aligners are removable for eating and cleaning teeth
- You can straighten both upper and lower teeth at the same time
- Reduced cost—up to 20% less than other clear braces
These benefits make Simpli5 an increasingly popular way to straighten your teeth.
How Simpli5 Works
Simpli5 works using the same basic principles as traditional braces: slow, steady force encourages your body to reshape the bone around your teeth, allowing them to move into the desired arrangement. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal wires and brackets to your teeth into place, Simpli5 uses clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gently push them.
Simpli5 uses a series of just five aligners, each of which is worn for about a month, unlike some aligners, which uses a longer series of aligners worn for only two weeks. This allows your teeth more time to move and settle into position, reducing discomfort, and also reduces the cost of treatment.
To ensure your teeth are moved properly, you have to wear your aligners for 16-20 hours a day, but you can remove them for eating, and brushing your teeth. You can also remove them for special events or if you are having close-up pictures taken, although in most cases, the aligners won’t show up in photos.
