The placement of braces does not hurt. However, you may experience some soreness after having braces placed and for several days. You may take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen to lessen this discomfort.
Clarity (TM) ADVANCED Clear Braces
Clear braces are virtually unnoticable. Translucent brackets are designed to blend in with the natural color of your teeth and resist staining and discoloration.
No trays to keep track of or excessive maintenance required. No daily maintenance beyond normal brushing and flossing.
Preferred by Adults
Change your smile without changing your lifestyle. Eat and drink whenever you want, without removing and inserting trays.
