The Differences Between Invisalign vs Braces

One of the main advantages of Invisalign over traditional wired braces is its convenience. You can have your treatment done at home, and you don’t have to deal with all those annoying wires on your teeth. 

Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers both Invisalign and wired braces for her patients who are interested in teeth straightening treatments.

Invisalign is more durable than braces, which means that they’ll last longer and require less maintenance when they come off. And while traditional braces may cost less (because they’re cheaper), they’re not always covered by insurance and therefore require payment upfront.

Still not convinced? Here are some other reasons why you should go with Invisalign over traditional braces:

  • Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces because it doesn’t require rubber bands or wires.
  • Your teeth will look better after treatment since Invisalign aligns them from within (rather than from the outside). This means that there’s no need for metal brackets on your teeth or wires in your mouth!
  • You’ll be able to eat whatever you want—no restrictions!

Here are some tips for getting started with Invisalign aligners:

Wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day. This will speed up the process and make sure that each set is properly worn before moving on to the next one.

Clean your teeth and aligners regularly. Brush and floss twice a day and rinse out your aligners with cold water after meals.

Avoid eating or drinking while wearing the aligners. They should always be removed when consuming food and drinks (other than water). Make sure to brush and floss your teeth afterward.

Visit your orthodontist regularly. They will be able to monitor your treatment progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Following these tips will help ensure that your Invisalign treatment is flourishing. You will ensure you achieve the best results possible in a timely manner!

What Are Your Choices for 2023?

Whitening Toothpaste

Whitening or Specialty Toothpaste, like Plaque HD, can gently polish away the shallowest surface stains as Targetol Technology is used to help patients to identify and remove all traces of plaque from the teeth. It’s a one-step, easy-to-use, product that helps to fight cavities, prevent gum disease, enhance brightness and freshen the breath.

Over-the-Counter Whitening

These over-the-counter products (OTC) may come in the form of strips, gels, rinses, or whitening trays. These products contain bleaching solutions that change the color of your teeth; however, they’re not as strong as professional in-office teeth whitening treatments. Results can be seen within several days to a few weeks with daily use.

Many of these teeth whitening products also use a form of peroxide. The only difference between OTC and professional in-office teeth whitening is the higher strength of peroxide being used.

In-office treatment
