How Does Invisalign Differ To Metal Braces?
When you choose Invisalign treatment over metal braces, you are opting for an orthodontic solution that will have minimal disruption on your life. Each Invisalign aligner is virtually invisible, meaning other people will barely be able to tell that you are using anything at all.
In contrast, metal braces are very visible on the surface of your teeth. Braces require small metal brackets that are bonded to your teeth and joined with wires that slowly pull your teeth into their new position. These wires must be regularly adjusted and tightened by your dentist, creating constant pressure pulling on your teeth.
Invisalign is also a lot more practical and discreet in daily life than metal braces. There are no brackets and wires, which may break during sports and other activities. You do not have to worry about food getting stuck in braces that are then difficult to clean. In fact, you can remove your Invisalign aligners anytime you need for eating, cleaning, or while participating in sports where you need to wear a mouthguard. Overall, Invisalign treatment is a much more comfortable option and often takes less time than metal braces.
