If you wish to correct the alignment of your teeth or get your crooked teeth straightened, you have two options to choose from i.e. conventional braces and Invisalign. Let’s explore, in what ways both of them are similar and what makes them different.
The traditional braces were the only choice with people who wanted to get straight teeth. They consist of metal brackets and wires, which are fixed to the patient’s teeth and bound with each tooth with rubber bands or wires. The braces have evolved over the period of time and now you can get braces matching the color of your teeth enamel, making them almost invisible.
They are more esthetically appealing option as they are almost invisible. The Invisalign in Shelton, CT, are removable trays, which are to be worn on teeth for 22 hours a day and can be removed while eating and brushing. They are made of clear plastic and they are soft on your mouth. Invisalign is a relatively quicker option for treatment. There’s a series of trays that you have to change every two weeks for adjusting your teeth to a new position.
Unlike your traditional braces, the Invisalign are easier to use. However, you have to pay a little extra for them. The dentist can let you know about the exact cost of treatment depending on your dental condition and duration of treatment.
