Which Is Better, Braces or Invisalign?
Ever since modern dentistry brought Invisalign to the market, there has been an ongoing debate as to which orthodontic treatment is best. The easy answer is that both treatments are highly effective, but it all boils down to the condition of your teeth to determine which treatment is best for you.
Traditional braces are commonly used and many of us may immediately think of a teenager when we think of braces. It is true that metal braces are often used in younger patients. However, Invisalign can be used in patients of all ages. Braces can be used to correct a variety of dental issues like crowding, overcrowding, bite problems, gaps between teeth, misalignment and more! Modern braces are also becoming more effective and are now be offered in different materials like clear braces and ceramic braces.
Invisalign is a highly effective orthodontic treatment that is used for minor misalignment, gaps, and crowding. During the Invisalign treatment, clear trays are provided by our dentist that will be exchanged out every couple of weeks. Typically, results are quick and can be seen within a few months. Invisalign is also a great choice for adults that may be self-conscious about getting traditional braces. Additionally, Invisalign is removable which allows for comfortable eating while also promoting hygiene since it is easier to brush your teeth and clean the trays.
