Traditional Braces

Orthodontic treatment Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal braces to correct teeth. Clear braces called Invisalign are custom-made, removable aligners worn over the teeth and gradually moving them into place. They’re less apparent than standard metal braces because they’re clear and removable. Most people wish to improve their smile, but many believe that the only choice is to use traditional metal braces. While wearing Invisalign clear braces, your smile won’t be marred by metal brackets or wires. With Invisalign clear braces, you can straighten your teeth in half the time it takes with regular braces while still feeling comfortable and looking great. Adults who have put off orthodontic treatment for years can finally get it done using Invisalign clear aligners, which are clear and virtually undetectable.

How long do braces take to strengthen teeth?

So not all cases are Invisalign friendly, some cases you cannot treat with Invisalign because the movement needed is just far too complex. Also we know when we treat some of our younger patients that we just won’t be compliant enough to use the Invisalign, so as a doctor, we make a determination about which treatment is going to allow everyone to be successful, patient, parent, and orthodontist. So should I get Invisalign or braces really depends on the case. It really depends on comfort level with having accountability. I will say Invisalign appointment frequency is less than it is with braces. Standard interval for appointments for braces is probably going to be every six to 10 weeks. For Invisalign, it is probably going to be every 9 to 14 weeks.
