Invisalign Vs. Braces
In this post, we are going to compare Invisalign vs braces. Many patients are debating whether to consider Invisalign treatment or consider braces for the treatment of their crowded teeth or incorrect bite. Rego Park Orthodontics is here to help you to decide and discuss the pros and cons of each treatment option. We want our patients to be fully informed about their orthodontic choices for them to make the proper decision for their treatment. In order to make the choice that is right for you, there are some things to take into account: esthetic appearance, compliance with orthodontic treatment and the cost.
Esthetic appearance during orthodontic treatment:
Esthetic appearance of your teeth during orthodontic treatment can be an important factor when making a decision which treatment choice to consider. While both types of treatments, whether with Invisalign clear aligners or with traditional braces will lead to successful results, Invisalign clear aligners still remain less visible type of orthodontic treatment if you are a right candidate for it. Depending on your vision of esthetics, ceramic braces or tooth-colored braces also satisfy your look while in treatment. Ceramic braces will remain bonded to your teeth at all times, providing the nonstop or continuous treatment of your teeth. Ceramic braces are a good esthetic choice for those patients with far more severe dental problems the ones that Invisalign treatment might not be very helpful. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Larissa Davids will evaluate your teeth and will discuss with you whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment or the treatment with ceramic braces.
Compliance with orthodontic treatment:
Compliance with orthodontic treatment plays a great role to obtain the wanted outcome. Whether you have braces or Invisalign aligners, maintaining a good oral hygiene will help you to keep your gums and teeth healthy and to go through the treatment without any obstacles on the way. Our Rego Park orthodontic office will provide you with all necessary information on how to take good care of your teeth during the treatment and will supply you with all the necessary brushing and cleaning tools to keep your oral hygiene healthy. Dietary restrictions are sometimes implemented for those lovers of junk good in order not to damage your braces. Usually, there are minimal to none dietary restrictions for Invisalign wearers. If you choose to be treated with Invisalign aligners, compliance with wearing aligners full time becomes a crucial factor to achieve your desired smile. Just remember to put your Invisalign aligners back on your teeth once you finished your meal, so the treatment can continue without much interruption.
