Investing in orthodontic treatment has a host of benefits, ranging from improved self-confidence to a lower risk of tooth decay and TMJ disorder. But with so many modern types of braces available, how can you choose the system that’s best for your needs?
Conventional Braces for All Needs
Traditional orthodontic systems use brackets and archwires to predictably align teeth. They can be used on everyone from young children to mature adults. Best of all, conventional braces can treat everything from minor tooth misalignment to more severe malocclusion cases in a predictable manner.
Invisalign Removable Aligners
Removable alignment systems like Invisalign are preferable for adults and teens who want a low-profile alternative to traditional braces. However, a heavy dose of dedication is required, being that you need to wear the aligners for a specific time each day and change them out as directed. Invisalign may not work well for an active teen who has trouble keeping up with a lot of extras. But adults with minor to moderate tooth misalignment tend to make ideal Invisalign candidates.
