Invisible Braces vs Metal Braces

Straightening your teeth will support long term dental health in addition to providing the smile you have always wanted. Invisible braces alleviate many of the hassles associated with traditional metal braces. Metal braces are very noticeable and unsightly. Oftentimes, food gets caught in the metal braces causing embarrassing situations especially for adults. You are very limited on your food choices with metal braces. Braces are permanently attached to your teeth where they will remain for 6 months up to 3 years making it difficult to brush your teeth and maintain proper oral hygiene. Metal braces are comprised of brackets that are bonded to your teeth then those brackets are connected with a thin metal wire which can often cause discomfort.

For an effective treatment, patients should wear their aligner for at least 22 hours a day. This will leave you with plenty of time remove them so you can enjoy the foods you love and maintain good oral hygiene with thorough brushing and flossing.
