Choosing between Braces and Invisalign

Choosing between Braces and InvisalignUntreated orthodontic problems can lead to serious oral health issues. According to the American Dental Association, straighter teeth are associated with teeth that are easier to clean and healthier gums. Even though your primary reason for wanting straighter teeth may be cosmetic, orthodontic treatments may ultimately help you lead an overall healthier life. Your next step will be deciding whether to get traditional braces or Invisalign aligners. Our Los Angeles dentist can help you choose which may be right for you.

When you are trying to decide between braces and Invisalign, you may consider:

• The approximate length of treatment and number of required orthodontist visits
• Comfort and adaptability of chosen treatment method
• Associated costs
• Permanence of treatment method
• Results: Will my bite be improved and teeth straightened?

Traditional braces may cause pain, mouth sores, and difficulty eating. Tooth decay or gingivitis may result from plaque buildup around the brackets. Braces also frequently require significant lifestyle changes. Favorite foods may need to be sacrificed in the interest of preserving the braces. You will no longer be able to eat regular gum, hard candies or nuts, corn on the cob, and similar foods and treats.

Invisalign Aligners are a series of clear plastic aligners that are made for your teeth. Smooth and comfortable, they gradually move your teeth into position without the irritation and pain that often accompany braces. Because they are removable, you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods or beverages, and you can maintain the same excellent oral hygiene habits you always have.
