Invisalign vs. Braces – Which Will Work Best for Me?

November 12, 2016 Invisalign vs. Braces – Which Will Work Best for Me?

Invisalign vs. Braces – Which Will Work Best for Me

One Of The Most Common Questions Patients Ask In The Invisalign Vs. Braces Debate Is, What Will Work Best For Me? For Patients Looking To Get Orthodontic Dental Treatments, The Answer Can Be Complicated.

Firstly, Dr Rutnam will need to determine if you’re a candidate for either treatment. Your orthodontic options will vary based on jaw, bite, and teeth.

The good news is, both Invisalign and braces can effectively straighten teeth. They can also correct bite issues that require special diagnosis and treatment. The bad news is, the different between the two treatments is significant. So choosing the wrong option could leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each before you decide what’s best for you.

INVISALIGN

Pros
  • Almost undetectable when worn
  • Won’t irritate the inside of the mouth
  • Removable so brushing & flossing as normal is easy
  • Does not affect speech
Cons
  • Does not fix complex dental problems
  • It’s up to the patient to self-manage

BRACES

Pros
  • Fixes a number of complicated dental issues
  • Works faster at closing gaps & aligning teeth
Cons
  • Perhaps not the most aesthetically pleasing, especially for adults
So, Which One Works Best?

Invisalign treatment can be expected to work more efficiently for aesthetic purposes rather than for the purpose of improving the functionality of the teeth. This is why many people, especially those who have complex dental problems, still prefer dental braces. However, It is really up to the patient to decide which option, Invisalign or Braces, best suits their lifestyle.
