Comparing Invisalign vs. Braces
Cost of Treatment
For Invisalign braces, they should be worn for at least 20 hours per day and changed out every two weeks. Additionally, it is important to keep the aligners properly cleaned and stored in their special case when not in use.
Braces require more frequent visits than Invisalign, as they are adjusted every four to six weeks to ensure tooth movements. Remember to keep the braces and wires clean by practicing a good oral hygiene routine such as regular brushing and flossing. Additionally, patients with braces should avoid eating hard or sticky foods that can damage the wires and brackets.
Invisalign vs. Braces: Which Treatment Option is Better?
The decision of whether to choose Invisalign or traditional braces ultimately comes down to your individual needs and preferences. Both treatments can provide excellent results in straightening crooked teeth, but they offer different benefits and drawbacks that must be considered.
