Should You Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign or Metal Braces?

Today, there are many different ways to have straighter teeth and a better smile. Two of the most common are the clear braces called Invisalign® and traditional metal braces. Discover the benefits of both to see which braces are best for you.

Orthodontic Options

Braces can straighten your teeth, move teeth into their proper position, correct problems with your bite, improve your dental function, and enhance the look of your smile. One of your main orthodontic options is traditional metal braces, while the main alternative to metal braces is the clear braces known as Invisalign.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign is a very efficient and effective way to have straighter teeth and correct simple dental concerns. Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic trays to shift teeth into position. While metal braces are attached to the teeth, this alternative to metal braces is removable to make eating, brushing, and flossing easier. Their clear look makes them practically invisible, which makes them ideal for people who are self-conscious about wearing braces. Since Invisalign is so discreet, it has become very popular, so it’s very easy to find an Invisalign provider near you. The main advantages of these clear braces include:

  • Highly effective
  • Barely noticeable
  • Allows people to wear braces and still feel comfortable in social settings
  • Ideal for maintaining an attractive appearance while straightening teeth
  • Great comfort due to lack of sharp metal brackets and wires
  • Doesn’t affect speech
  • Ideal for simple dental issues

Benefits of Metal Braces

Metal braces have been used for decades to effectively straighten teeth and repair more advanced dental problems. Metal braces use brackets and wires attached into teeth to move them into their proper position. The biggest benefits of metal braces include:

  • Very effective
  • Works faster at closing gaps and correcting crooked teeth
  • Best for complicated dental cases

To make the right dental decision, see an orthodontist who is also a licensed Invisalign provider to determine which braces are best for your smile.
