Braces in any form can be costly and a life-altering investment in our life. That is why it is so important to understand the difference between Invisalign® and traditional braces.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are very effective when it comes to moving your teeth into their proper positions. They also treat a wide variety of problems, such as overbites, crossbites, underbites, crowding of teeth, and spacing between the teeth. Traditional braces are a great option if you want to achieve the smile of your dreams. Traditional braces include metal brackets and wires that are placed on your teeth and often tightened or changed for adjustment. This appliance is easily seen by others. Throughout treatment, you will need to pay special attention to what foods you eat. You will also need to properly clean them on a daily basis.

Invisalign

Invisalign also treats dental problems like overbites, crossbites, underbites, crowding of teeth, and spacing between the teeth. Invisalign aligners can snap on and off your smile, which makes it easy to floss and brush your teeth properly. There is also no limitation to what you can eat with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are made of a clear and smooth plastic, and they snap over your existing teeth. Over time, these aligners will straighten your teeth and push them into the places they need to go. With the proper care, Invisalign is a great option for people who do not want others to notice their braces.

Both options can provide you with a beautiful smile and straight teeth. To discover which option is best for you, ask your dentist. So, come by Jupina Dental today and let us help you as you transform your smile.
