The removable braces that everyone can’t stop talking about are clear aligners also known as invisible braces. There has been a lot of advancement in the treatment plan as well as their general availability since their first introduction.

Here’s what their fame is owed to:

Aesthetic Appeal

While traditional braces looked unappealing and bulky, removable clear braces are practically transparent. Made out of high grade plastic, in the majority of cases, it is difficult to tell if you have them on which means no more awkward photos and good bye to restrained smiles.

At-Home Treatment

They provide great convenience with at-home treatment plans. From the very first stage of impressions to the last stage of retainers, consumers don’t have to take a step out of their house (or off their bed) to get their hands on a teeth straightening treatment.

This revolutionary change makes them travel friendly, busy-schedules friendly and accessible to everyone.

How They Work

Removable braces are customized, clear plastic trays that come in numbered sets. These sets are worn in their prescribed order, for 10 days each. Each is slightly different from its predecessor which shifts the teeth gently towards their desired position. Compared to traditional braces, clear braces don’t require visits to the orthodontist to get wires adjusted.


The reason why everyone wants them is because they are now within everyone’s reach.

Clear removable braces can be up to 70% less expensive than conventional metal or ceramic braces. In addition, there are no clinic costs to consider, and considering your time as a valuable resource you can save a significant amount of money by foregoing the orthodontist visits.

Concerns Addressed

Removable braces do what most traditional braces do, but more gentleness and discretion.

Clear removable braces such as ALIGNERCO can effectively align teeth into their desired positions and address several dental malocclusions like teeth gaps, overbite, underbite, spacing and crowding.


Removable braces can be taken out before meals or brushing and snapped back on with ease. If this doesn’t suit your lifestyle, opt for the wear at night-only plan for minimal interference.

Night-only braces are worn only during night, and help straighten your teeth in the comfort of your bed. You will never know how many around you use removable braces ‘under covers’.


Removable aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, and since they're made of smooth plastic this eliminates the discomfort and abrasion associated with metal brackets and wires that irritate cheeks and gums.


While pain threshold varies from person to person and depending on the severity of the case, ALIGNERCO removable braces provide a significantly more comfortable alternative to traditional metal or ceramic braces. Patients with mild misalignment have reported a seamless transformation.

Myths And Misconceptions

Removable braces are gaining popularity by the day and are here to stay. However, there is a myth and misconception about their similarities with other options especially ceramics braces. Here’s what you need to know:

Are Ceramic Braces The Same As Clear Removable Braces?

Ceramic braces are fixed and have a metal wire with tooth colored ceramic brackets that might appear clear but are not the same as removable braces.

Ceramic braces may come with colored bands (with silver being a popular choice) while clear removable braces are transparent.

Ceramic braces can get stained and change color as they are worn for a longer period of time.

Removable braces on the other hand are taken out before drinks other than water, making them less prone to color change and stains.
