Invisalign vs. Traditional Metal Braces

McCandless Invisalign dentistTraditionally, if you were a McCandless-area resident suffering from an overbite, underbite, cross-bite or any other mis-alignment, there was one solution: metal braces. These braces were uncomfortable and unsightly, but they got the job done, and they were the only option.

Well, not any more. These days, if you’re suffering from an alignment problem that calls for orthodontic adjustment, you have options. One of the most popular choices is Invisalign®.

Invisalign®’s clear plastic aligners present a number of significant advantages over traditional metal braces. These include:

  • Invisalign® aligners are completely invisible – no one will know you’re wearing them. This certainly can’t be said for braces.
  • These aligners are comfortable. They fit snugly over your teeth and can be removed before you eat or brush your teeth. And you won’t have to worry about getting food stuck under your wires.
  • Invisalign® doesn’t require unpleasant tightening appointments. You get a set of aligners, wear them for approximately two weeks, then replace them with a new set.
  • Finally, Invisalign® aligners are custom-designed for your unique needs and the unique shape and alignment of your teeth.

The Invisalign® process is quite simple and ends with you boasting a set of beautiful, photogenic, well-aligned teeth. We’re happy to talk to you about Invisalign® and help you determine if these aligners are right for you.
