The difference between Invisalign and Braces

The difference between Invisalign and Braces

Invisalign in Brooklyn NY is a treatment that uses aligners to achieve well aligned teeth. It is an alternative for metal braces and it is used for correcting crowded or crooked teeth and gaps or overbites found between the teeth. The Invisalign treatment requires the use of clear plastic - aligners - and they are custom made according to the needs of the patient. In comparison to metal braces, aligners may be removed for short periods of time such as for brushing teeth and eating. Results are influenced by compliance to keep the aligners in place, experience of the doctor, and the level of movement required for teeth.  

When it comes to choosing between braces and Invisalign, many people are not sure of what they should choose. Their concerns include which one is cost effective, which is more reliable, and which has lesser side effects. Both Invisalign and braces have been designed well for straightening teeth while improving oral health and smile. Braces use metal brackets that are glued to the teeth and tied together by tiny rubber bands or wires. It is possible to get brackets that match the enamel color, so that they can be discrete.

Invisalign is known for its invisibility. Aligner trays are made using comfortable and smooth BPA-free clear plastic that should be worn on teeth to move them gently. The specialist uses impressions, pictures, and X-Ray images to create the best 3-D teeth image and configure aligners as required.

Both Invisalign and braces help straighten teeth, but each one has its benefits and side effects. With braces, discomfort and sores are common because of brackets and wires that are used for teeth movements. Also, there may be some difficulty experienced when eating hard or sticky food.
