Invisalign and traditional braces (metal and wire) are orthodontic options that straighten teeth. They are similar in results but differ in execution.
For example, Invisalign in Aston, PA, relies on a sequence of clear aligners created from digital oral impressions. Traditional braces rely on metal brackets fixed to teeth and threaded with guidewires.
Let’s explore other ways traditional braces and Invisalign are different.
Comparing Braces to Invisalign
Most patients indeed prefer Invisalign, and for good reason. The benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces include:
- Invisalign is virtually invisible for a discreet treatment that is barely noticeable.
- Invisalign is removable for eating, brushing, flossing, or for brief periods.
- Invisalign means fewer visits to the dentist because you can change your own aligner.
- Invisalign is fabricated using a smooth plastic for a comfortable and more accessible fit.
As far as Invisalign being better than traditional braces, we agree that it’s more desirable and practical than old-style metal orthodontics. However, your dentist will determine whether Invisalign is right for you or a better choice than traditional braces. Fortunately, in most cases, Invisalign is a fantastic option!
