This is a question that is difficult to answer and that merits a discussion with your dentist
. There are obvious advantages to having invisible, or at least less visible, braces
. These can be especially welcome in people, such as yourself, who are in a professional work environment and would like to avoid drawing attention to the fact that they are undergoing something often associated with a younger age group. Obviously, the braces are not completely invisible, and most people will still be able to notice that you have something in your mouth if they look closely enough. The specific cost benefit analysis will depend on how self conscious you are and how much you would feel bothered by the traditional metal braces that are so common. As you may be aware, even the latter kind of braces are becoming more common even in older people, and so this may not be as abnormal as you may think. The most valuable thing will be to discuss the question with your dentist or orthodontist to determine which option is best for you. He or she may have additional factors, and will be able to help you compare all options effectively. Please speak with your healthcare professional for more help with this question.
