What’s the Dental Difference between Invisalign and Metal Braces?

Today, it’s easy to have straighter teeth and a better smile with braces. The two most popular types are the clear braces called Invisalign® and the traditional metal braces. See which braces will give you the very best smile.

Types of Treatment

Braces work wonders at straightening teeth, improving dental function, shifting teeth into an ideal position, correcting bite misalignment, and enhancing the appearance of your smile. One of your main orthodontic options is traditional metal braces, while the main alternative to metal braces is the clear braces known as Invisalign.

See the Beauty of Invisalign

Even though it’s a relatively newer treatment, Invisalign has proved to be a very effective way to discreetly straighten teeth and repair simple dental problems. Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic trays to shift teeth into position. While metal braces are attached to the teeth, this alternative to metal braces is removable to make eating, brushing, and flossing easier. The clear look makes them practically invisible, which makes them ideal for people who are self-conscious about wearing braces. Since Invisalign is so discreet, it has become very popular, so it’s very easy to find an Invisalign provider near you. The main advantages of these clear braces include:

  • Extremely effective
  • Invisible
  • Allows people to wear braces and without any social discomfort
  • Ideal for maintaining an attractive appearance while straightening teeth
  • Doesn’t affect speech
  • Greater comfort since there aren’t any sharp metal brackets and wires
  • Ideal for simple dental issues

Get a Look at Metal Braces

For many decades, traditional metal braces have been used to effectively straighten out teeth and correct complicated dental problems. Metal braces use brackets and wires attached into teeth to move them into their proper position. The biggest benefits of metal braces include:

  • Very effective
  • Works faster at closing gaps and straightening crooked teeth
  • Best for complex dental cases

To make the right dental decision, see an orthodontist who is also a licensed Invisalign provider to determine which braces are best for your smile.
