Are Braces Better Than Invisalign?

Deciding on a kind of tooth correction treatment is inevitable for many people around Michigan. Thanks to recent advances in dentistry, many patients qualify for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign uses clear retainers to gently align teeth, and patients don’t have to deal with many of the hassles associated with braces. For instance, Invisalign patients can remove and rinse their retainers during meals, so they can enjoy eating without worrying about food being stuck in their brackets. Invisalign can correct misaligned teeth just as well as braces, and often without the amount of side-effects.

At West Village Dental Care, we recommend Invisalign to patients who frequently participate in contact sports. Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t come with brackets that rub against the inside of the lip. Wearing Invisalign aligners may cause mild soreness from the shifting of teeth, there is no lip and tongue irritation.

Are Braces Cheaper Than Invisalign?

Invisalign has a slightly higher average cost than braces, but it completely depends on the extent and duration of the treatment. Patients that require minor corrections will have a shorter treatment time than those with severe malocclusions.

Invisalign is comfortable, nearly invisible, and low-maintenance. They don’t prevent you from eating your favorite foods since patients can remove their aligners. However, in order for the treatment to be effective, patients must leave their aligners in for at least 22 hours a day.
