Braces and Invisalign both provide orthodontic treatment to improve overall alignment of teeth. They straighten teeth by following similar dental principles and provides benefit of a beautiful and healthy smile.
Traditional braces involves metal wires and brackets (squares) in combination to progressively shift teeth into the ideal position. Tradition braces are often visible and are fixed onto the teeth and could not be removed.
Invisalign offers more cosmetic alternatives to traditional braces. They are almost invisible during treatment and could be removed during eating or other special occasions to avoid aesthetic problems. However, Invisalign has somelimitations depending on the complexity of the dental problem it could correct. Our friendly dentist will be able to discuss this in more details with you once we have performed a comprehensive assessment for you.
