What is so great about clear braces? A better question might be what is not so great about them? And the answer would be not that much. For many of our patients here at Rosenberg Orthodontics, clear braces, represented by Invisalign, have many outstanding benefits that in the majority of cases, will result in an outcome that is equal to or better than what could be achieved with traditional braces, when administered by our best orthodontist in Brooklyn NY.
Let’s start, though, by mentioning a couple of ways in which traditional braces can be superior and the best choice for you. In some particularly complicated or severe cases of poor tooth alignment, traditional braces made out of metal are still the best option. In addition, they may be less costly in some instances, and our best orthodontist in Brooklyn NY wants to help you to remain within your budget; an important consideration for everyone these days. One more plus, and this is particularly so for teenagers: because traditional braces are fixed, if you are not disciplined enough to leave in clear braces, which are removable, when you need to, you may be better off selecting traditional braces. Invisalign, however, boasts several advantages. Being removable is one of them. You take out your aligner to eat, which means that you can enjoy all of your favorite foods, even if they are crunchy, sticky, or chewy. You also take it out to brush and floss. Otherwise, it stays in all day and night, even while you sleep. There is also greater comfort with clear braces. Their plastic construction means you don’t have to worry about any potential mouth soreness or irritation. But perhaps the biggest plus of Invisalign is that it is not visible when you wear it. You won’t have to feel self-conscious. No one will know you have braces on; unless, of course, you want to tell them.
