Invisalign vs Clear Braces?
Invisalign is one of the most well known orthodontic solutions available with many people turning to this method to help strengthen their teeth. However, despite it’s popularity, Invisalign is not always the most effective solution for improving your smile.
What is Invisalign?
Introduced in 2000, invisalign was designed to straighten teeth, improve your smile and overall oral health. Similarly, braces were invented to provide patients with the same results at a more affordable cost. Although invisalign is the latest oral structure solution, clear braces are generally more suitable for patients who have more complex dental issues.
Advantages of Clear Braces vs. Invisalign
Invisalign can be removed at any time. However, with clear braces, the brackets are glued to the teeth therefore, the urge to remove them is absent and there is less discipline and time needed to achieve great results. Additionally, braces are known to be highly functional by closing teeth gaps and correcting unaligned teeth. Therefore, patients who are looking for a more cost effective solution with more complicated tooth issues are recommended to go with clear braces as it has been proven to gain outstanding results for many years.
