Invisalign clear braces

Invisalign® vs. Traditional Orthodontics

If you wish to straighten your smile but do not want obvious metal wire braces, Family Orthodontics at KidZdent offers a solution. Invisalign clear braces are available to teenagers and young adults who are responsible when it comes to their dental care. These clear aligners are popular due to their undetectable nature. The common comparisons between Invisalign clear trays and traditional braces are:

Capability

One of the major considerations taken when choosing an orthodontic treatment is the amount of correction your smile needs. If you have mild to moderate malocclusion Invisalign trays are ideal for you. Those who have severe cases of misalignment, overcrowding, or gaps should take traditional metal braces into consideration. They are a tried-and-true method of straightening your teeth for those more difficult cases. Consult with our dentist to determine if the clear aligners are a suitable option for you.

Appearance

One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign clear braces is their discreet appearance, making them the ideal choice for natural aesthetics.  Compared to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign trays are not bulky and do not draw attention. Invisalign clear aligners are fabricated from an invisible medical grade plastic to securely fit around the contours of your teeth.  While metal braces are known to cause discomfort and soreness of the cheeks and teeth, Invisalign clear aligners subtly shifting your teeth into alignment.

Removable

When a patient is wearing Invisalign clear braces, they do not need to avoid their favorite foods. The clear aligners are conveniently removable. Simply remove the trays during meal time. Always remember to reinsert the braces once you have completed eating and have brushed or rinsed your teeth. The Invisalign trays must be worn for 22 hours a day.

Traditional metal braces have a knack for trapping food between wires, making the debris difficult to remove. Special flossing instruments, such as Waterpiks® or floss threaders, are usually needed when the food becomes stuck.
