The Benefits of Invisalign vs Braces

Whether you are a teen or an adult, the thought of having braces can fill you with dread. The thought of having a mouth full of metal for a few years is less than ideal for most. Fortunately, there have been many advances in the field of orthodontics and there are now more options, including clear Invisalign® aligners

Celebrities, young patients, and adults who are finally ready to do something about their crooked teeth choose Invisalign® because of its discreet, comfortable design. At Brodie Bowman Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign® and multiple orthodontic options to our patients who have crooked teeth and misaligned bites.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a set of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit the mouth of the patient. Using sophisticated 3D imagery and technology, Invisalign® aligners are formed out of a medical-grade plastic that is durable and safe for the mouth. 

The aligners will gradually shift the teeth into a more proper position and are changed every two weeks. The treatment time is comparable to treatment with traditional braces.

What are Benefits of Invisalign® Compared to Traditional Braces?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners can be removed for sporting events, special occasions, or when eating foods that are difficult to consume with braces. They are clear, making them practically invisible. Patients will not have the potential irritation of the gums and teeth that can come with metal braces.

Invisalign®  is the orthodontic treatment of choice for anyone who is self-conscious about getting braces or does not want to make it obvious that they are receiving orthodontic treatment. Also, you can stay on top of your oral hygiene by removing your aligners to brush and floss.

With traditional braces, it is much harder to keep your teeth clean. You don’t have to worry about rubber bands or food getting stuck in your brackets. Invisalign® is a simple solution.
