To deal with oral problems, Orthodontists are using the latest technique of treatment apart from braces known as Invisalign. This is being considered as the best method of straightening teeth. Adults mostly opt for this method as it is more scientific and is not visible like metal braces.

Braces are the most common techniques used for aligning teeth and not only that, braces correct other deformities as well like spaces between the teeth, over biting, crowding of teeth and other painful situations like gums and jaw swelling that are mainly due to the misalignment of teeth. Metal braces and ceramic braces have been used by most people for many years and have had great beneficial effects and have got back their beautiful smiles and healthy life.

But with the implementation of the new technique like Invisalign more and more people are opting for this method of treatment. Unlike braces that are made of metal or ceramics, Invisalign is made from invisible plastic aligner trays. They are very smooth in texture and are very comfortable. It is removable also and a person has to wear it for 20 hours a day to get maximum effect and the recovery is also faster.

Another difference between braces and Invisalign is that braces in spite of being very effective in treating complicated problems, they are painful and their visibility makes patient especially young girls feel awkward and shun away from social gatherings. Sometimes patients suffer from ulcers caused by the constant wear of the wires and metals of the braces.  

Invisalign is more comfortable and it works well to give your back the winning smiles that you want. You can brush your teeth and floss too without any problems as you can remove it conveniently. You can remove it when eating and so food is never trapped in them. The uniqueness of Invisalign is that it is invisible. So you can freely attend parties and social gatherings without anyone knowing about your aligners.

However, it is the Orthodontist who will decide which method will be the best for the patient. Although Invisalign is painless and extremely comfortable and easy to use, certain problems are better treated by braces. It is not only the alignment of the teeth that are to be treated, the bone health and the movement of the jaws and connecting tissues too need equal care and this is only possible by specialists like Orthodontists.
