The clear aligners do not have the brackets and the archwires. Also, their color is the same as that of the teeth making it very difficult to view by the third person.
- Traditional braces cannot be removed on a daily basis. So, it becomes difficult to brush the teeth and clean the clear aligners properly. The clear aligners can be removed whenever needed. It is particularly removed while eating, brushing teeth, and cleaning the clear aligners.
- Traditional braces are a little less costly than clear aligners. However, the benefits given by the clear aligners are more than the cost incurred in it.
- Traditional braces need more duration for the completion of the treatment process. When it comes to the clear aligners, they need a lesser duration for the treatment process.
