Clear vs. metal braces in Williamsburg

Clear braces are a type of orthodontics that use fixtures so they are less visible. Invisalign is a clear type of invisible aligner that is used to straighten teeth over time just like regular orthodontics. Traditional adult orthodontics use brackets, metal spacers and arch wires to straighten teeth over a period of time. Each patient is different and the time frame depends on each individual case as determined by our Williamsburg orthodontist. This can be a year or more. Many patients prefer Invisalign because it makes eating, flossing and drinking easier. Clear braces like Invisalign can be removed for special events and functions. There are also no fixed brackets or wires to tighten as well as no screws to tighten. That can be more comfortable for some patients who have sensitive mouths.

The aligners are easy to use compared to traditional braces, which require metal brackets and sometimes painful tightening. Traditional braces cannot be removed or taken off but are still ideal for those who need alignment. Patients should brush thoroughly to avoid getting any food trapped in between teeth and gums, which can contribute to tooth decay.
