What are Invisible Aligners?
Clear aligners are also called invisible aligners. They are transparent and made of BPA-Free PETG plastic. Clear aligners are comfortable to wear as they are handcrafted to fit precisely over your teeth. You will not have any sharp metallic edges protruding out as with brackets or wires that could irritate your lips, tongue, or cheeks. They are a painless substitute for braces.
What are Metal Braces?
Metal braces are a type of orthodontic appliance that is used to correct misaligned teeth and improve the overall bite. They are made of stainless steel brackets and archwires that apply constant pressure to shift the teeth into the desired position. Metal braces are effective for correcting complex dental issues, and the treatment typically takes between 18 to 36 months. Although they are noticeable, advancements in technology have made them smaller and more comfortable than ever before. Metal braces require regular adjustments and careful cleaning to ensure successful treatment.
Disadvantages of metal braces
Metal braces can create problems while eating and you will need to avoid solid, hard, or crispy foods. Even candy such as caramel or toffee can cause wires to come out requiring a visit to the dentist. It will likely be suggested to eat from a list of certain foods compliant with metal braces.
Extended treatment time:
You will probably be wearing your metal braces for an extended time, so it is important to follow directions and care for them properly. If you neglect to adhere to the instructions from your dentist, you may not reach the treatment outcome desired.
Brushing and flossing:
Taking proper care of your teeth is always very important, but when you are wearing metal braces, it becomes more difficult. You have to brush and floss regularly to keep your braces and teeth as clean as possible.
