Braces vs Invisalign


Although braces are one of the most common and recommended treatments available to straighten crooked teeth, they are not for everyone. This is often due to how much the metal attached to the teeth stands out, and the wearer may be embarrassed by them. This is why Dentist Collingwood also have the Invisalign treatment available.

But what is Invisalign? To put it simply, these are clear aligners that are not noticeable at all, but they will still fix your teeth. They are designed to align crooked, crowded, and spaced teeth, and they can also treat overbite, underbite, and crossbite.

How does this treatment work?

These aligners are custom designed and manufactured to fit your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before it needs to be replaced with another aligner. Your teeth will gradually move into alignment little by little, eventually achieving the straight teeth you desire.

How does Invisalign compare to braces?

While braces achieve fantastic results, many of our patients do not like the look of them. If the Dentist Collingwood dentist believes you do not need braces, but thinks your teeth do require some work, then Invisalign is perfect for you. Besides not standing out visibly, these aligners make it easy to maintain day to day oral hygiene, as opposed to braces that can get in the away of your brushing. As the aligners are removable, it is easier to enjoy foods and drinks as, unlike braces, they will not get in the way.
