Depending on your severity of misalignment and bite, you can benefit from clear braces with Invisalign in Prince Albert. However, those who have major alignment issues, traditional braces in Prince Albert may be the better option. No matter the treatment that best suits your needs, both forms of orthodontic treatment are effective to permanently straighten your smile.

Traditional Braces vs. Invisalign

Traditional braces are an age old form of orthodontics because they are affordable and effective. Traditional braces involve the use of wires and brackets, which are bonded to the teeth to gradually pull the teeth into their correct positions. While traditional metal braces are noticeable, can cause discomfort, and do place restrictions on your diet, they are the most effective form of treatment for complex orthodontic issues.

Invisalign is one of the newest and most preferred form of orthodontic treatment. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign uses custom-made, clear plastic aligner trays to move the teeth into their correct positions. The trays are created in a series, which are needed for an average of a year. The clear trays are removable and provide an almost invisible treatment. While Invisalign can cost more than traditional braces, treatment with the aligner trays comes without restrictions and is often shorter than that of traditional braces.

Choosing Braces in Prince Albert

Both forms of braces in Prince Albert are effective; however, Invisalign cannot be used for all orthodontic cases. Those who have teeth that are rotated more than 20 degrees or tipped teeth over a 45-degree angle will require traditional braces. In addition, if there is more than 6 mm of tooth gaps per arch, traditional braces are the best option. For those who have severe deep overbites, open bites, or poor bites from skeletal issues, Invisalign is not right for you.

To determine which form of orthodontic treatment is best for your individual needs and lifestyle, you will require a consultation from your cosmetic dentist in Prince Albert.
