Clear aligners and traditional braces are both orthodontic devices that treat minor to severe dental misalignments. Both are FDA approved treatments and yield stunning results in patients seeking a beautiful, symmetric and confident smile. In this blog post we will talk about some of the important factors which will help you make a decision between these two options such as extent of correction, age and lifestyle.

    Invisalign

    Invisalign or clear aligners is an orthodontic device that is used to correct the minor alignment issues. They are also known as invisible braces and are custom made according to the structure and anatomy of your teeth. They have been popularly known in children and adults who are seeking a discreet alternative to metal wired braces.

    Some of the benefits of clear aligners are listed below.

    • They are custom made pockets that sit on top of your natural teeth and provide a discreet solution to correct misalignment.
    • They don’t cause cuts of discomfort while chewing or speaking unlike traditional braces.
    • You can simply remove the mouthpiece and brush and floss normally.
    • There is no danger in having hard, chewy or crunchy foods.
    • Clear aligners don’t require patients to visit the dentist often.

    Some of the drawbacks of clear aligners include

    • They re not a sought treatment for complex corrections
    • You must have to remove it before eating,
    • It requires discipline to wear clear aligners at all times for faster and better results.
    • Some people might need tooth attachments to connect clear aligners.

    Traditional Braces

    If you have your dental sealant appointment, here are somethings to expect:
    Traditional braces consist of a metal wire and brackets that fit on the top of each tooth and are spaced out over months and years. Let us list the known benefits of braces.

    • Braces work for minor to complex cases.
    • You can choose lingual or ceramic braces for a better suited and discreet alternative.
    • They are not removable. Hence, the success with traditional braces goes unmatched.
    • They are heat resistant and stain proof so there is not much to worry about while having beverages.

    Here are some drawbacks of traditional braces

    • Metal braces are likely to cause discomfort and take time to get used to.
    • They are more obvious as compared to clear aligners.
    • People with braces are limited to eating only a few foods while avoiding crunchy, hard and chewy foods.
    • With braces, you have to pay a regular visit to gauge the success or rectify any problem.
    • Maintaining good oral hygiene is a challenge with traditional braces.
