Invisalign vs. Braces
Many of our patients want to know if traditional braces (brackets and wires attached to the teeth) or Invisalign is better, but there isn't a straightforward answer. Invisalign and braces both offer a host of benefits but can address different dental needs according to each patient.
Here are some of the major factors to take into consideration when deciding between Invisalign or braces:
Some patients claim Invisalign clear aligners feel more comfortable than the brackets and wires of braces, but they may be tempted to take the aligners off if a new tray causes mild discomfort.
Patients can remove their aligners to eat, floss, or play contact sports without affecting the trays. As a result, patients can also lose or forget their aligners.
- Invisalign treatments last an average of 6 months to 2 years, and Invisalign Express can work in as little as 3 months. However, Invisalign may not be able to treat more intensive cases of misalignment.
- Any mild discomfort experienced after having your braces tightened quickly goes away, and most patients barely notice their braces after an initial adjustment period.
- Braces cannot be removed, and patients must avoid very hard or sticky foods to keep their braces in good shape. At the same time, patients cannot lose or forget their braces at home.
- Traditional braces treatment lasts an average of 1-3 years, but braces can treat more intensive cases of misalignment that Invisalign cannot. These intensive cases naturally require more time to move the teeth into place.
Cost of Treatment
Our Lake in the Hills practice will check with your insurance provider to see if the cost of treatment is covered partially, covered completely, or is not covered. We accept a wide variety of insurance providers and will ensure you receive your full benefits.
Cases of more complex misalignment will require a longer treatment timeline, which means additional clear aligners, and additional cost. Orthodontic treatment is generally less expensive for patients receiving Invisalign Express because fewer clear aligners are used.
