Which Works Best: Invisalign or Braces?

July 30, 2014

The easy answer to the question Invisalign or braces is that it depends on the individual patient. Your bite, alignment, jaw, and the complexity of your case all impact whether Invisalign or braces will work for you.

The benefits of Invisalign seem obvious to many people considering teeth aligning treatments. They are undetectable when worn; their smooth plastic is not irritating to the mouth; and being removable makes eating, brushing, and flossing easy.

In some cases, braces are actually better suited for an individual. Complex issues require 24-hour treatment that only traditional braces can provide, as they are not removable. Traditional braces rather than Invisalign would better solve issues in bite, rather than alignment of the teeth.

In complex cases, Invisalign may be unable to correct certain problems, at least not initially. They must also be worn vigilantly. Those that are too easily tempted to spend a day without wearing them or to take them out too often may sacrifice the benefits of straight teeth that Invisalign is supposed to provide.

It’s Never too Late to Have the Smile You’ve Always Wanted

July 23, 2014

Let’s get straight to the point. It’s never too late for a perfect smile. These days, nearly half of orthodontics patients are adults. Here are some reasons why you should consider getting braces as an adult if you need them.

Confident Smile

A crooked smile can put a damper on your self-esteem and you don’t deserve that! Your confidence will soar once you achieve your desired smile!

Besides, braces aren’t as bad as they used to be. There are ways to make traditional braces more subtle. There are also options such as Invisalign that hide the fact that you are correcting the alignment of your teeth altogether.

If you don’t have time to waste and are looking for instant results then veneers might be the best option for you. We offer a number of different porcelain veneer styles for great-looking, permanent results that suit you and fit your budget.

Healthy Smile

A misaligned smile could also be a cause of increased health concerns. Plaque hides much easier behind crooked teeth, which makes issues such as gum disease and periodontal disease much more prevalent.

Your bite is just as important as your smile – even if you have straight teeth the way your mouth is aligned is important to how your mouth functions. It can cause secondary problems like headaches or proper chewing.
