Traditional braces are one of many options if you want straighter teeth. Clear aligners, like Invisalign, can also fix many dental problems. Which orthodontic treatment is best for you? This video from Teeth Talk Girl goes over the benefits of braces and Invisalign.
If you’ve avoided braces because of how they look, you may appreciate how inconspicuous Invisalign aligners can be. Most people won’t be able to see your aligners when you’re wearing them! You’ll remove your aligners before you eat, so you won’t have to stay away from hard to sticky foods.
One major advantage of Invisalign is that it requires fewer visits with an orthodontist than braces.
Braces are your best option if you have a serious alignment issue that you want to correct. While Invisalign may not be suitable for some conditions, braces can treat large tooth gaps, severely crooked or overcrowded teeth, and other issues. Braces may be the best way to get the results you want.
Whether you choose braces or Invisalign depends on your needs as a patient. It’s best to discuss your options with an orthodontist. That way, you’ll be able to answer your questions and find a treatment that will improve your smile and oral health.
