Dr. Lampros and Dr. Reopelle know it is natural for you to feel some concern when you need to wear any type of appliance to correct a problem with your teeth. Both braces and Invisalign can produce excellent results in giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Both methods can straighten your teeth and alleviate such issues as crowding, spacing, a crossbite, overbite, or underbite. Both methods of treatment have a similar cost. Invisalign, however, has some advantages over traditional braces.
Some of the discomfort you may experience with braces is greatly reduced with Invisalign. Because Invisalign is custom-fit to your mouth and made of plastic, you may feel less irritation and soreness than braces. Additionally, unlike braces, there are no food restrictions; you can eat anything that is on your diet.
Brushing and flossing
Of course you will want to brush and floss your teeth to prevent plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, and dental decay. If you wear braces, these simple tasks can become quite a challenge. Invisalign aligners are very easy to remove and replace, so you can brush or floss like normal without having to work your way around any metallic framework covering your teeth.
Since the aligners are practically invisible, no one will even notice you are wearing them! Whether you are a teenager or an adult, you can live your life normally with a more esthetic orthodontic treatment option.
