Is the Invisalign Treatment Really Better Than Traditional Braces?

Featured Image

There are two orthodontic solutions for patients in the Sugar Land area to use when correcting their smiles. First, we offer traditional metal braces with brackets, which have evolved over time to provide more comfort and effectiveness. Second, there’s the option of Invisalign aligners that are removable and can gradually reposition the teeth during your treatment.

Both of these treatments are helpful for many situations. Invisalign treatment is quicker, more comfortable, and discreet. But there are also situations where traditional braces may be necessary, including more complicated orthodontic situations. You can consult our dentists at Made Ya Smile of Sugar Land, TX for details on how these two orthodontic solutions work and find out which one is right for your needs.

How does Invisalign treatment work?

The dentists at Made Ya Smile Dental in Sugar Land, TX are Preferred Invisalign Providers, which means they have the knowledge and expertise in this innovative orthodontic approach. Invisalign treatment is an exciting and popular solution to a great smile because it requires less hassle, provides more comfort and is discreet. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and can be removed as necessary, including for eating and drinking as well as for teeth cleaning.

Invisalign aligners are shaped based on a digital review of your teeth and the desired results you’re aiming to get from the treatment. You will replace your aligners every few weeks based on how well your teeth respond, with each new aligner being shaped by how your teeth appear as you progress.

The unique design of these aligners ensures you’ll receive predictable results through the Invisalign treatment. Since the aligners are shaped over how your teeth respond, it is easier to control how well the effort works.

For the most success, you’ll need to wear these aligners for at least twenty hours a day, plus you’ll require regular brushing before reinserting your aligners.

The sturdy design of Invisalign aligners still make them easier to maintain, but because they are removable, you’ll need to be mindful of where you put them outside of your mouth to prevent losing them.

What about traditional braces?

Traditional braces are also available at Made Ya Smile of Sugar Land. Braces are ideal for more significant orthodontic needs, including when you have multiple teeth that require correction, including protruding, crooked, and rotated teeth.

Another great feature about traditional braces is the option to customize your gear by choosing from a selection of different colors for the rubber bands. This is a great way to show off your personality while you are on the road to a straighter smile. You can expect this orthodontic treatment to last one to three years depending on your situation.
