Invisalign, if you are searching for other options, is your best choice. So here is how it will happen.
First, your dentist will digitally scan your teeth. Your dentist will then prepare a custom set of aligners for you. The aligners will force the teeth to move into the correct position, and you will have to wear this Invisalign for a few hours each day. Invisalign can treat crowding, crooked teeth, crossbites, underbites, and overbites. Invisalign is for patients of all ages and is the leading choice of orthodontists.
Invisalign is considered the better choice because, unlike braces, Invisalign is removable, extremely comfortable, and transparent, making it difficult to spot. Braces cause a lot of pain and make flossing and brushing your teeth difficult. When wearing braces, you also have to follow food restrictions. With aligners, you do not feel as much pain as you do with braces, and if you need to floss or brush your teeth, you can remove them beforehand, and you do not need to follow food restrictions.
Invisalign does have its downsides as well. The treatment will take longer to complete as compared to the amount of time it takes with braces. Also, Invisalign may not be as efficient as braces are. The teeth may not fall into place correctly. Another downside of Invisalign is its cost. When you add up the consultation and the other charges, Invisalign is more expensive than braces.
