- Braces &
- Why Simply
Completely invisible braces are a very realistic type of braces and orthodontic treatment option for a number of orthodontic patients. No matter what your reasons are for wanting invisible braces, you have options when choosing your type of invisible braces. There are two main types of invisible braces: lingual braces and Invisalign. We will discuss them further in this post.
What Are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces aren’t as common as most other types of braces, but they certainly are a good option if discretion is a deciding factor for you. The brackets for this type of braces are each custom made to fit to the back of your specific tooth.
Benefits Of Lingual Braces:
• Lingual braces are easier to manage than ever before due to technological advancements.
• Brackets are custom-made for your individual teeth.
• No one can see them when you smile.
Drawbacks Of Lingual Braces:
• They take time to get used to.
• More expensive.
• Access is more difficult for your orthodontist in MA.
• A challenge to keep clean.
• Not recommended for extreme cases.
• Can cause a speech impediment in some people.
• Tongue soreness is possible.
What Is Invisalign?
Though Invisalign isn’t the best option in braces for extreme cases, it is a very good option for people who have minor misalignment, crowding, or gaps. Based on your individual needs, your MA orthodontist will be able to tell you whether Invisalign is a good option for you. Many people like Invisalign because it doesn’t look like you have braces at all, and your teeth are still gradually straightened over time.
Benefits Of Invisalign:
• They’re truly invisible.
• You can keep eating and drinking whatever you want.
• Removable trays.
Drawbacks Of Invisalign:
• Self-discipline is a must.
• Not recommended for extensive treatment.
• You have to clean the trays separately.
• Take out the trays for anything other than water.
• Brush after every single meal, no exceptions.
Invisibility Also Means Responsibility
Is Invisalign right for you? That depends on a number of factors, of course, but there are some things you should know about what it takes to care for the trays. Your oral hygiene habits might be put to the test! Making sure you brush after every meal (even if you just grab a fry off of your friend’s plate), take your trays out if you’re eating or drinking anything except for water, and cleaning your teeth and then the trays are all a part of treatment with Invisalign.
