Is Invisalign better than the traditional braces?

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

Dr. Marjan Kermanshah Star Dental Smiles Lets start saying Invisalign is more comfortable than braces. However, Invisalign trays exert gentler pressure compared to braces, and that makes the former far more comfortable than the latter. Second, There is also no risk of getting your gums cut, as the Invisalign trays just rub smoothly against your gums. Invisalign clear aligners can treat nearly all common teeth-straightening issues, from simple to complex. Many people who formerly had braces choose Invisalign treatment as they are a discrete solution to improve their smile when they find that their teeth have shifted back. Third, Invisalign is often advertised as being pain-less and less painful than metal braces. But that doesn't mean that Invisalign doesn't hurt. (Putting pressure on the teeth means some discomfort and pain.) This pain can be pronounced during the first few days after putting in a fresh set of aligners, but it eventually goes away.

Fourth, in some cases Invisalign can be used to move teeth so that the top and bottom teeth align properly when your mouth is closed. Fifth, Invisalign clear aligners tend to be a little bit more pricey than traditional braces. This is likely because the demand is high and they know the demographic who are looking for clear aligners are likely adults who are willing to spend the extra money for the luxury of having clear braces.
