Comparing Your Treatment Options
Choosing the right orthodontic treatment is a crucial decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. That’s why Dr. Strait wants to make sure that you’re fully educated about your treatment options before you make a commitment.
While metal braces are the traditional method of straightening teeth, Invisalign offers several benefits that can improve your overall experience.
For many patients, the most obvious drawback of wearing braces is their appearance. Since the metal wires are visible every time you smile, braces can make you feel self-conscious and unattractive.
Invisalign uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible, allowing you to maintain a discreet appearance. This will allow you to smile with total confidence throughout your treatment.
Each pair of Invisalign aligners is customized to the shape of your teeth for a perfect fit. The thermoplastic material is specially designed to be thin and smooth so it won’t irritate your cheeks and gums.
You also won’t have to worry about broken wires or uncomfortable bracket adjustments with Invisalign. Instead, you’ll swap out your aligners for a new pair roughly every two weeks until your expected results are achieved.
Braces can be quite a hassle — keeping them clean is difficult and they force you to avoid certain foods. Broken wires or snagged brackets can also set your treatment back and force you to schedule sudden emergency appointments.
Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat and drink whatever you like. This also makes it much easier to keep your aligners clean. Best of all, Invisalign straightens your teeth up to two times faster than metal braces.
