Traditional metal braces are often recommended for patients with severe bite or alignment problems. Some patients may be able to opt for clear or ceramic braces, which are much like metal braces only less noticeable. Unfortunately, while traditional braces are extremely effective, they do have some downfalls apart from their appearance. They can be uncomfortable to wear, and they may be difficult to clean. Patients must carefully brush around each bracket and floss around the wires to remove all traces of plaque and reduce their risk of demineralization during treatment. Regular adjustments can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.
Invisalign may be an option for most people with mild to moderate bite or alignment issues. Invisalign is not permanently bonded to teeth the way traditional braces and can be easily removed for cleaning. While braces must be adjusted periodically, which requires regular orthodontist visits, Invisalign aligners can just be switched at home for a more convenient adjustment experience. Aligners move teeth into place over a period of about a year, and while they tend to be more expensive than traditional braces, they are also more discreet. The clear aligners are virtually invisible when being worn. Cleaning is easy because the aligners can simply be removed during mealtimes and for dental hygiene. Brushing and flossing can be performed as usual and without any complicated procedures.
