Benefits of Invisalign for a straighter smile:
Invisalign clear aligners present a straightforward and efficient alternative to traditional braces, boasting numerous remarkable advantages.
  • Cosmetic considerations
    Since Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible, most people will never be able to tell that you are wearing an orthodontic device. This makes them the perfect orthodontic option for individuals who are self-conscious about their appearance.
  • Clear aligners are removable
    One of the great things about Invisalign® clear aligners is that they can be removed to brush, floss, and eat. This isn’t only convenient, but also helps maintain health throughout the duration of orthodontic treatments. With conventional metal braces, food and biofilms can accumulate around the brackets, which can increase the risk of cavities and other dental health issues. Also, unlike Invisalign clear aligners, traditional braces can restrict your food options.
  • They’re more comfortable
    The brackets of traditional braces tend to chafe the inside of the cheek, making them uncomfortable. Also, wires can become bent while eating, which can cause some pain and discomfort. Invisalign® clear aligner trays are smooth to the touch and precisely molded for your teeth using digital dental scans.
  • Fewer office visits
    Since Invisalign® aligner trays are designed using digital workflows, patients can expect fewer appointments with their dentist in comparison to traditional orthodontics.
  • Faster than braces
    Invisalign® treatment is often faster than braces. Because each new tray is precisely formed to target certain areas, Invisalign® treatment is typically faster than conventional braces. Every few weeks you will return to the dentist’s office to receive your custom aligners.

Traditional Comprehensive Orthodontics
Traditional comprehensive orthodontics involves using metal arch-wires, AKA “braces,” to move teeth into a more-ideal position over time.
  • The braces are placed onto brackets that have been glued to each individual tooth. Traditional orthodontics relies on metal arch-wires instead of the clear plastic aligners often associated with Invisalign. Unlike 6-month braces, traditional comprehensive orthodontics is often a long-term treatment, with the goal of improving the alignment of the teeth, as well as the bite.

  • 3 parts of traditional comprehensive orthodontics, AKA “braces”:
  • * Metal archwire

    The archwire is what moves the teeth. The wire is placed onto the brackets, which are mounted onto the teeth (see next section). The length, thickness, and position of the wire are what determine how each tooth will move. At each follow-up appointment, the archwires are replaced with new wires, with different characteristics,to move the tooth gradually.

  • * Brackets
    The brackets are cemented onto the surface of each tooth. Their function is to serve as a connection point for the archwire. The brackets follow the force of the archwires, and push or pull the teeth into the ideal position.
  • * Elastic “rubber bands.”
    Elastics maintain the connection between the archwire and brackets. Each bracket is attached to the archwire with elastics, which come in an assortment of colors.
  • Additional components include hooks, steel ties, coils, and headgear.Traditional comprehensive orthodontics is still the gold standard for achieving comfortable, natural, healthy results in situations involving severe malocclusion or misalignment of the teeth.
