Invisalign VS Metal Braces

metal braces vs Invisalign

Dental professionals today recommend orthodontic treatments to straighten crooked teeth and improve their look and function.

Invisalign is an innovative dental system that straightens teeth by using a set of aligners.

To determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign in Alhambra, Dr. L. Andrew Mutch will first do a comprehensive assessment to identify the most effective treatment plan for you.

Metal braces VS Invisalign

Invisalign is a good option for patients who want to have straight teeth. In fact, it is a much better option than metal braces. Here are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces.

Comfort – Metal braces are bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Also, the metals can irritate the gums as well as cause discomfort to your facial muscles. Invisalign is made of plastic and does not cause any kind of pain.

Convenience – Since Invisalign can be removed anytime, you can still eat whatever you want. There are no food restrictions. Brushing and flossing your teeth is also easy to do. On the other hand, braces have to be worn at all times, making it hard to clean the teeth. It is also not advisable to eat foods that are hard or large when wearing metal braces.

Aesthetics – When it comes to aesthetics, there is no doubt that Invisalign is the better choice. Your friends and workmates will not know that you are wearing aligners and trying to straighten your teeth.
