Invisalign or Traditional Braces: Which Works Best?


 
Health,Family & Parenting
Invisalign trays must be taken out of the mouth and washed periodically. You cannot eat or drink anything while the trays are in place, with water being the only exception. After eating and drinking, you must brush your teeth before placing Invisalign back in your mouth, or else risk staining.

Finally, Invisalign is not without its limitations. It is a less effective treatment method for teeth located in the back of the mouth. It cannot correct canine teeth or premolars and it cannot correct a bad bite.

In some ways, Invisalign and traditional braces are similar. Once treatment is complete, both methods require the patient to use a retainer to maintain the orthodontic work for the long term. Patients using either method must visit the orthodontist regularly during treatment, though Invisalign users may only have to go once every six weeks as opposed to every four. Overall, both methods are reliable for tooth correction, but the need for extensive correction might warrant opting for the traditional route.

When you are considering investing in Invisalign or traditional braces, an experienced orthodontist can make accurate predictions as to how your teeth will respond to either treatment based on your specific misalignment.

">Choosing between Invisalign or traditional braces can be a challenging task. Though they differ in terms of style and cost, you may consider effectiveness the most important deciding factor. Read on to discover the pros and cons of each option.

Traditional Braces: the Benefits and Drawbacks

With traditional braces, metal brackets are glued to the tooth surface and held in place with wires and bands. Normally, the brackets are made of silver metal, but for an extra cost you can order brackets in a color that matches your enamel for a more discreet appearance.

Depending on the patient’s misalignment and need for corrective treatment, the braces are worn an average of two years, around the clock. The cost can range from under $2,000 to over $5,000. The patient must visit the orthodontist every month for an adjustment.

While traditional braces are useful for treating any orthodontic problem, no matter how severe, they can cause discomfort to the patient. The teeth may become sore, especially directly following a tightening adjustment. Since the brackets interfere with cleaning the entire surface of the tooth, discoloration may be apparent following treatment. The patient’s diet also is restricted – they cannot eat any foods that may stick in or on the metal brackets.

How is Invisalign Different?

Invisalign differs from traditional braces substantially. First of all, no metal is involved. Invisalign trays are formed from BPA-free plastic, personally designed to fit your teeth based on X-rays and molds. Where metal braces are easily seen, the plastic coverings are practically invisible. Instead of being worn 24/7, Invisalign is effective when used at least 22 hours of the day. Treatment does not last as long as traditional braces – it can wrap up in as little as six months in some cases.

Invisalign patients report minor discomfort from tooth movement, but no pain from wires and bands. Since patients can remove the tray before brushing and flossing, no tooth discoloration should develop over the course of treatment.

Invisalign Considerations

For adults and teens who want to stay confident during treatment and do not want to concern themselves with metal in their smile, Invisalign is a positive alternative, but it comes at a premium. It normally costs at least $5,000, though the final bill may vary depending on length of treatment and geographic location.

Additionally, while metal braces are cared for during normal teeth-brushing routines, Invisalign trays must be taken out of the mouth and washed periodically. You cannot eat or drink anything while the trays are in place, with water being the only exception. After eating and drinking, you must brush your teeth before placing Invisalign back in your mouth, or else risk staining.

Finally, Invisalign is not without its limitations. It is a less effective treatment method for teeth located in the back of the mouth. It cannot correct canine teeth or premolars and it cannot correct a bad bite.
