Invisalign VS Braces
With Invisalign, Dr. Carol Jin D.D.S. can give you the straight dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of, without the embarrassment of unsightly conventional braces, and at a comparable cost. Over the last decade, the popularity and demand for Invisalign has skyrocketed. The aesthetic appeal of this technology offers tooth straightening without the hardware that comes with traditional braces.
The Difference Between Invisalign & Braces
There are a few key factors to think about before you make a decision between Invisalign and braces. While dental braces may be called for in very complex cases, both methods are effective for straightening your teeth and correcting a variety of cases, including crowding and spacing. They also do more than just straighten the teeth, in that they both are valuable in correcting bite issues such as underbite and cross bite that often require special diagnosis and treatment.
The Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign has some distinct advantages over braces, both in terms of convenience and of oral and overall health. Unlike braces, you may remove the device at any time, and, as a result, are able to eat all the food that you enjoy since it allows you to thoroughly floss and brush your teeth normally afterwards. This is a considerable boon to your periodontal health, which emerging research has shown can also affect your cardiovascular and bone health, among other systems.
Comfort & Appearance
In terms of comfort, Invisalign is made of smooth plastic instead of sharp metal, which can irritate your mouth. In addition, Invisalign only requires office visits every four to six weeks, saving you time and the inconvenience of more frequent appointments. Invisalign Teen provides up to six free replacement aligners if lost or broken, an advantage for worried parents. However, since nearly half of orthodontic patients today are adults, Invisalign is not just for the very young, as it can dramatically improve your self-image and confidence and even your health at any age. Invisalign is a lot more cosmetic in appearance during the process, for those who wish to obtain straight teeth while still feeling comfortable in business and social situations. Wearing Invisalign also offers comfort and does not affect your speech, as braces can do.
