Invisalign Vs Traditional Orthodontics Comparison Table
At Dental Boutique we understand that Invisalign and other orthodontic treatment is a lifelong investment and is not easy decision to make.
Here is a quick table to show you the differences at a glance:
|Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so it’s difficult for others to notice the treatment.||The wires and brackets of traditional braces are visible.|
|Most patients may feel pressure in the early stage when starting with the first few Invisalign aligners.||Most patients may feel pain each time braces are adjusted. The metal brackets may also irritate the mouth and cause ulcers.|
|Invisalign aligners are removable. You can remove them before eating/drinking and easily brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene.||Braces are fixed and not removable during the teeth straightening treatment. This makes it difficult to eat certain types of food (e.g. apples, nuts) and it can be difficult to clean and floss your teeth with the braces in.|
|Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration.||Traditional braces can only give you an estimate of the duration of treatment at the beginning of the treatment process.|
Before deciding on the best orthodontic solution for you, it is important that you consult with one of our professionals. We can talk through your options, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and help you make an informed decision that is best for you.
