Teeth Straightening Options
Traditional metal braces | Traditional metal braces are composed of brackets and wires that constantly exert a gentle force on the teeth. This strong option will quickly straighten even the most stubbornly crooked teeth. As an added bonus, we provide brackets that are smoother, smaller, and flatter than the brackets of the past.
Clear braces | Clear braces work with brackets and wires, just like traditional metal braces. The only difference is that they are made of clear or tooth-colored materials for a subtler look.
Invisalign | Invisalign consists of clear plastic trays that slip on and off the teeth like a retainer or mouthguard. Invisalign is a convenient way for most patients to fix overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, or crooked teeth.
Invisalign vs. Braces
The Invisalign vs. Braces question crosses every orthodontic patient’s mind. Only your personal needs and goals can determine which option is the best one for you.
Some patients solve the Invisalign vs. Braces debate based on their needs. Some patients need sturdy metal braces to fix their problems, while others just need a short Invisalign treatment. Here are some of the other factors you should keep in mind while asking about Invisalign vs. braces:
Removable vs. Permanent | Invisalign braces are removable, so you can continue eating what you like and brushing your teeth with ease. Metal or clear braces are permanently attached to your teeth until your orthodontist removes them, so you’ll never lose or misplace them.
Comfort vs. Durability | Invisalign trays are custom-made to your teeth, and they are made of a smooth plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums. Metal braces may require wax application sometimes, but they are also less likely to become broken or lost.
Discretion vs. Creativity | Invisalign aligners are designed to be almost undetectable. With metal braces, you can choose between hundreds of rubber band colors. You might also choose clear braces, which are less obvious than metal braces but work the same way.
Don’t worry—you don’t have to make this decision on your own. After glancing at your teeth, Dr. Bollu can help you determine who wins for you when it comes to Invisalign vs. Braces.
