Many parents are now looking into Invisalign clear braces over traditional braces when the time comes for their kids. The experience for many children when they first receive traditional braces can be difficult.
Traditional braces can be uncomfortable, difficult to eat with, and cause self-esteem issues for many kids. Adults who receive traditional braces also report the same issues.
Although traditional braces are meant to make teeth straighter and create a better smile, they do the exact opposite while they are in. Invisalign is the best alternative to traditional braces and remain discreet throughout the time they are in.
This less intrusive method of correcting teeth has continued to grow in popularity. Although traditional braces have their own advantages, Invisalign can be an incredible and effective alternative.
Issues With Traditional Braces
Most people can recall their experience receiving and living with traditional metal braces. Typically, dentists will recommend the orthodontic treatment to correct the alignment of a patient’s teeth.
Traditional braces are made of metal and are not removed until the teeth have finished moving into place. This can cause a number of problems for the patients both young and old that must wear them.
Traditional braces can be uncomfortable and can cause disruptions in a patient’s life. The best-known example of this is the difficulty many patients have eating with traditional braces.
With traditional metal braces, a patient could have a very difficult time just eating a sandwich. Many different kinds of foods we all love can get stuck between the braces and teeth. There are also cosmetic concerns.
Unlike Invisalign clear braces, traditional braces are not discrete. Traditional braces are instantly noticed the moment an adult or child patient opens their mouth. Children often report feeling extremely self-conscious when they are given traditional metal braces.
Even adults can suffer from the stigma of requiring braces as an adult. Invisalign addresses these issues, making it the best alternative.
Using Invisalign Correction
Most patients are eligible to receive Invisalign clear braces from an orthodontist. Generally, only extreme cases require traditional metal braces or another procedure to correct. Images of a patient’s mouth and teeth are taken prior to the fitting.
This image can be altered to show the patient how the finished result will look. Throughout the procedure, new aligners will be applied to continue correcting the patient’s teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic that cannot be seen when a patient smiles. This discretion can keep young and old patients from feeling self-esteem issues. The Invisalign clear braces can also be taken out to eat whatever the patient wants.
Unlike traditional metal braces, patients can continue to enjoy their favorite foods. Wires breaking or similar issues are not present when using this revolutionary orthodontic procedure.
