Are you tired of looking at yourself in the mirror and wishing for
better dental alignment and smile? Congratulations on making that
decision. You have probably come across two of the most common
treatments that will help you achieve your goals: Invisalign and
metal braces. But which one do you choose? The ultimate decision lies
with you, although this piece will help you understand your options
Both Invisalign and
metal braces are orthodontic tools used to straighten crooked or
misaligned teeth. These tools are known to be effective in restoring
the perfect smile and teeth alignment.
Evanston residents have taken advantage of, is
clear in color versus the metal braces with metallic brackets held on
together with wires running across teeth. Invisalign aligners are
custom-made and designed to epitomize trays that fit onto your teeth.
Metal braces are
permanent throughout the treatment period. However, you are required
to visit your orthodontist for check-up and tightening of the wires.
On the other hand, Invisalign by an Evanston dentist is temporary.
You can fit the trays and remove them at any time. Orthodontists
recommend wearing the aligners at least twenty-two hours in a day and
only remove them when brushing, flossing or eating.
Because metal braces are permanent, most patients have a problem
brushing and flossing teeth. It’s easier with the Invisalign as you
will tap them out to clean your teeth as usual and fit them back.
