How Does Invisalign Compare to Braces?

When patients are faced with misalignment of the teeth, they often cringe at the idea of bringing up their concerns with a dentist for fear of being told they require braces. Braces, or orthodontia, is a method of repositioning the teeth in the smile to create a more aligned dental arch. This may be done not only for cosmetic reasons, but to address poor bite alignment and issues such as overcrowding, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Cedar Mountain Dental encourages patients to speak to the dentist about orthodontic options as many of our patients can enjoy a more discreet alternative known as Invisalign.

Understanding how Invisalign works

Invisalign is a special dental treatment that uses clear plastic aligners worn over the teeth to reposition them within the dental arch. Invisalign trays are comfortable to wear and can be difficult for others to spot over the smile. This makes them a more desirable option than traditional braces, which cover the teeth with unsightly metal brackets and wires. Patients obtain a series of trays that carry them from start to finish, and wear each tray day and night for two weeks before moving onto the next tray. The number of trays in a patient’s Invisalign kit will vary depending on the severity of misalignment that is being treated. Patients who comply with treatment will often enjoy their new smile in a year or less!
