Modern Invisalign versus Traditional Braces

Traditional braces have been used successfully for about 50 years and they are still used in the dental community as a good treatment. They help to deal with orthodontic problems, offer predictable results and don’t require an extensive maintenance routine.

On the other hand, Invisalign is an advanced dental treatment compared to traditional braces. For suitable candidates, it helps to straighten the teeth without any help of wires/brackets. In a majority of cases, the expense and time taken for treatment is the same as that applicable to traditional braces. Today, several people prefer Invisalign over traditional braces because it is reported to be more comfortable and easy to use among patients.

Invisalign is the latest approach employed by the advanced dental community for straightening teeth. It involves the use of a series of customised aligners, which are created for a patient as per his/her specific requirements. Very clear, comfortable and almost invisible plastic is used to build these trays, which the patients have to wear over their teeth.

Over a period of time, as you wear these aligners, your teeth will slowly shift into place. It is based on accurate movements, which are planned out by your orthodontist or Invisalign dentist. There is absolutely no use of wires or metal brackets for attachment or tightening. The patient has to simply put in a fresh set of aligners after every 2 weeks till the completion of the treatment.

Advantages of Invisalign

As mentioned before, Invisalign can be used as a modern orthodontic treatment  in place of traditional braces.  It is reported to be less visible and more comfortable as plastic aligners have a softer feel on the cheeks and lips. Also, the number of visits required to complete the treatment are also lesser as compared to traditional braces. An Invisalign dentist will inform you that patients are not required to follow stringent diet restrictions with Invisalign and no extraordinary cleaning procedures are required to maintain the aligners.

With these advantages, several people have been drawn to Invisalign.
