Should You Get Self-treated Clear Aligner Braces?

For many people, a beautiful smile is priceless. However, when it comes to clear aligner braces, some patients wonder whether they should opt for self-treated braces to save money. Before making this decision, consider a few things. After All, it’s your smile.

Traditional metal braces require a complicated installation and maintenance process. In comparison, clear aligner braces seem relatively simple to insert. Since they are easier to insert and remove, some companies offer self-managed kits that the user receives in the mail.

The American Dental Education Association describes dentistry as one of the oldest medical professions. Despite its ancient origins many people could not afford to see a dental professional.
