Versus Traditional Braces

Traditional metal braces have been and will continue to be, an excellent tool for correcting problems with your smile. They remain especially helpful with severe cases, but in almost every other aspect invisible aligners prove to be a better alternative.

Just like traditional braces, invisible aligners move your teeth into place through slight pressure over time. But instead of constantly returning to your dentist to have them readjusted, you simply start the next tray in the series. Although you will remain in contact with your doctor to monitor progress.

The greatest advantage to traditional braces is that clear aligners are removable. This means you are not restricted in the food you eat, as you are supposed to take them off to eat or drink.

But just as with braces, it's important to limit the number of sugary foods you consume, as keeping your teeth clean and healthy is crucial as ever, on or off the treatment. With invisible braces, you don't have to make changes to your cleaning habits since you brush and floss without the aligners on like you've always done.
