San Clemente, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2016 -- Braces and Invisalign are only some of the many orthodontic treatments used by a dentist as the most successful treatment to straighten and align the teeth of their patients. The use of these dental treatments does not just straighten the teeth, but also helps put them in their ideal position thereby improving the look as well as the function.
The basic purpose of having either of these orthodontic dental treatments is to be able to efficiently align the canines to the upper arch and effectively make the spaces between the teeth evenly distributed. These dental techniques also help reduce the overcrowding of the teeth in the lower arch. The treatment would thereby provide patients a perfect smile and ideal function.
Some patients are torn between the choice of using the braces or the Invisalign and it is very significant for them to understand the difference that separates one from the other. One of the huge differences between these two orthodontic techniques is the materials being used. While Invisalign utilizes clear plastic trays to effectively achieve the ideal position, conventional dental braces make use of wires and brackets to provide patients with not just perfectly aligned teeth but ultimate functionality and movement of the teeth.
However, to give patients more valuable information before they make a choice, here are the distinctive benefits patients could have from Invisalign and traditional dental braces;
Invisalign and its Benefits
This procedure is basically very effective in correcting tooth movements provided that the set of teeth being corrected are not too complex. This treatment involves wearing a computer-generated clear plastic dental tray 24 hours a day for 2 weeks; then after every 2 weeks, a new dental tray is made and again worn by the patient.
However, for more convenience there are some trays that can be utilized for a span of 6 months to a year. In addition to this, there may be a need for some form of retention to help prevent the teeth from shifting back to its previous position. What's best about Invisalign is that the trays are unnoticeable, which is why it is called as such. Another advantage that it provides is that it is very comfortable because it does not affect speech in any way.
Invisalign is used by many basically for aesthetic purposes rather than improvement of the teeth functionality. This is the main reason why some patients with complicated teeth problems are recommended to use dental braces instead.
Conventional Dental Braces Benefits
Dental braces are applied and installed by orthodontists using wires and brackets. This orthodontic treatment modality is very effective to successfully fix complicated cases of teeth misalignment that affects a person's bite, tooth functionality, and aesthetics. This is probably the best approach in straightening and correcting uneven gaps between the teeth as well as if teeth are crooked.
As a conclusion, on the question of which is better, the Invisalign or the dental braces, the dentist would be the best person to assess the condition and recommend the perfect treatment for each individual patient.
Invisalign is best for aesthetic purposes and corrects uncomplicated dental issues while the use of the dental braces is preferred in complicated cases to correct not just the position, but the function as well.
