The Difference Between Braces and Invisalign
Traditional braces which are known for their metal bracket appearance is the most conventional and fastest appliance to help straighten your teeth. Using the force of metal wires that get changed every 4-6 weeks, it helps move the teeth into the desirable position. The wire gets attached to the metal brackets on each tooth which allows the teeth to gently shift into place. For more aesthetically pleasing braces, at Parramatta Dentistry we are able to provide ceramic brackets that are at a similar colour to your teeth to provide a less pronounced braces appearance.
While on the other hand for a more invisible look, Invisalign is able to provide orthodontic treatments without people noticing. The use of clear aligners that are changed every 1-2 weeks slowly shifts the teeth into place. As mentioned before the only difference for Invisalign Parramatta is that it takes more time than the conventional metal braces. Each aligner is slightly different to assist the teeth to move into position and require patients to be diligent to wear them for at least 20-22 hours a day.
Both methods will achieve the same result, however depending on each individual and the complexity of the case. The Parramatta othodontist will offer his opinion on which orthodontic system to proceed with, hence it is important to get a consultation appointment with Parramatta Dentistry to discuss your options.
