Which Treatment Is Right For You?
Choosing the right orthodontic treatment is an important decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Dr. Strait and our orthodontic team want to ensure you’re as educated as possible before you commit to a plan.
While traditional metal braces are the most common way to straighten teeth, Invisalign clear aligners offer several unique benefits that can enhance your experience. Explore our guide to learn more.
For most patients, the largest drawback of metal braces is their appearance. Since they’re easily visible any time you smile, metal braces can make you feel unattractive and impact your self-esteem.
As a discreet alternative, Invisalign offers clear aligners that are virtually invisible. This allows you to smile with total confidence throughout your treatment.
Invisalign aligners are customized to the unique shape of your teeth for maximum comfort. The thermoplastic material is thin and smooth so it won’t irritate your cheeks and gums the way metal wires can.
You also won’t have to worry about uncomfortable bracket adjustments with Invisalign. Instead, you’ll receive a new pair of customized aligners roughly every two weeks until your desired results are achieved.
Braces can be a major inconvenience — they require you to avoid certain foods, keeping them clean is a hassle, and broken wires or snagged brackets are a real pain.
Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat and drink without restrictions. This also makes it much easier to keep them clean and avoid infection.
Best of all, Invisalign straightens your teeth up to two times faster than traditional braces. Typically, the whole treatment is completed in about 12 months, though the timeline can vary depending on your case.
