Invisalign® Vs. Metal Braces

Invisalign® Vs. Metal Braces

If you have any recommended orthodontic treatments for your mouth, your dental care provider should understand that you have other alternatives beyond traditional metal braces. Instead of old fashioned dental appliances like metal braces, more and more people choose to straighten their teeth using Invisalign ®. Dr. Lynch along with the amazing and professional dental team at McKinney Dentist in McKinney, Texas will help you get all the information on this type of treatment option to see if you’re an ideal applicant.

The Look 

The main reason patients undergo an Invisalign ® treatment is because of how they look. They are clear and not as detectable as cumbersome metal braces. Since braces are cemented to your teeth, you could encounter pieces of food debris trapped between the spaces of the braces. If this happens, Invisalign ® can simply be removed allowing you to clean out the debris, so you can return to smiling without embarrassment. 

The Feel

Patients love the way Invisalign ® feels on their teeth when compared to metal braces. It can be hard to get accustomed to metal pieces that poke and prod your gums, tongue, and cheeks. After every appointment where your braces are changed, your teeth may also experience ache.

The smoothness of Invisalign ® helps straighten your teeth with much less pressure and when you need them to be adjusted your dentist will easily give you a new aligner tray to continue your treatment instead of constantly tightening your braces.

The Control

Fact – other doctors have considered Invisalign ® a much quicker way to straighten their patient’s teeth. This is mainly due to Invisalign ® granting patients greater control over their treatment. They may take a night off from their orthodontic treatment when they have an important event to attend. Invisalign ® treatment has few food restrictions.
