Most adults who choose to straighten their teeth prefer Invisalign® over traditional braces for a number of reasons. For very complex dental problems, however, traditional braces may be the only way to go, and they can work wonders. If you are considering straightening your teeth in New Jersey, you can learn more about Invisalign® and your other options by talking to Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville today.
Many adults simply cannot stand the idea of being seen in metal braces. Some do not want other people to know they are undergoing a cosmetic dental procedure. You can get traditional braces with clear brackets, but you still have the visible wire and they tend to stain easily making them look grungy. Invisalign® trays are practically invisible.
Comfort and Speech
The brackets and wires of traditional braces can poke, pinch, and irritate the inside of your mouth. Invisalign® does not cause this irritation. Traditional braces can also affect the way you speak, while Invisalign® does not.
Eating and Cleaning Your Teeth
With traditional braces there are extensive dietary restrictions. When you wear Invisalign®, you remove the aligners while you eat, so you can eat anything you want. Then when it’s time to brush and floss, you also take them out, so it’s very easy. Brushing and flossing effectively with traditional braces can be very difficult, and if you fail, you may pay the price with tooth decay.
