Invisalign Vs. Braces

Invisalign Vs. Braces

Dental realignment has been transformed in recent years by the highly popular Invisalign method, but putting anything on your teeth for any amount of time is a big decision. So here’s where the experts at Beyond Smiles Dental compare Invisalign against the old standard of braces – purely to help you make the right decision.

 

Deconstructing traditional braces

The end goal of healthy, straight teeth has always been a wonderful achievement but before Invisalign even existed, traditional braces showed the world what you were going through. The bulky mechanics of the braces meant your facial features were slightly altered. Wearers were inhibited to smile or even speak due to the negative impacts cosmetically.

It can be confusing, so to clarify, there are three types of traditional braces in use today:

  1. Metal – still the most common of the traditional set. They’re made of high-grade stainless steel and can cause pain following visits to your dentist for retightening (necessary with this type of brace)
  2. Ceramic – where translucent brackets attach to metal wires. Still obvious to the naked eye, they can be very fragile and the elastic bands can discolour over time.
  3. Lingual – the brackets are on the inside of the teeth. There can still be pain when the mandatory retightening takes place and it can be difficult removing particles of food from the brackets at the back of your teeth.

While not as chunky as they used to be, all three traditional braces have been found to rob the wearer of confidence, and to cause varying levels of discomfort. Your mouth’s hygiene can be compromised if extra attention isn’t given when cleaning around the braces’ connections.

Invisalign

A clearly better alternative with Invisalign

Invisalign is a new technology, so simple in its application that once you see it, you might ask why it wasn’t thought of sooner.

Consisting of a clear overlay, known as an aligner, it is custom-made to the shape of your teeth and mouth. Over time, with the use of multiple aligners, your teeth are gradually manoeuvred into their new straight positions, without pain.

Invisalign’s benefits begin with a better cosmetic appearance, and go so much further:

  • No bulky attachments to the teeth are required – just a smooth overlay.
  • Invisalign is clear and slimline, so it’s almost invisible.
  • It’s removable for special events and for flossing and teeth cleaning.
  • There is no pain.
  • Regular dental appointments are significantly reduced.

Almost no age barrier to a confident smile

From teens, who are keenly aware of their image, to middle-aged adults whose work life may require a subtle approach to teeth straightening, Invisalign is the perfect answer to obtaining a faultless smile without pain, derision and unnecessary difficulty.

The team of experts at Beyond Smiles Dental are the authority when it comes to introducing and guiding you through the journey to a beautiful Invisalign smile. Please call today to start the journey to a gorgeous smile tomorrow.
