Crooked or crowded teeth can cause issues keeping your teeth healthy due to problems with hygiene and chewing problems. Have you thought of braces or Invisalign? Let’s check a few of the differences

Traditional Braces

  1. Effective method to straighten teeth
  2. Made from high-grade stainless steel
  3. Tends to be more affordable than Invisalign
  4. Dentists usually recommend traditional braces for those who have overcrowded teeth
  5. Better choice for people who can’t or won’t remember to wear their Invisalign 22 hours a day.

Traditional braces are the “go to” for many dentists especially for teenagers and children. They are not perfect, however. There are issues with eating; especially crunchy and sticky foods, wires tend to loosen, it usually takes 1 – 3 years depending on the patient’s case. These are just some examples of the cons of having traditional braces.

INVISALIGN

  1. The dentist takes a 3D image of your mouth and shows you using software what your smile will look like after the treatment
  2. Multiple sets are made to move your teeth from where they are to how you want them to be over a period of time, a little bit each set.
  3. Invisalign are see-through and therefore most people don’t see that you have them on
  4. They can be removed easily
  5. Makes daily brushing and flossing easier
  6. Fitted to your gum line for a more comfortable fit
  7. Often take less time than traditional braces

Invisalign is a hi-tech class of braces but it is not a perfect tool. It still has its drawbacks. For example, it turns yellow when you smoke or drink too much soda, it is often more expensive than traditional braces, and you must remember to put them in and remove them while eating.

Whichever method you choose, don’t hesitate to gain the confidence and healthier life that a beautiful, straight smile can bring. We would love to help you achieve this.
