Metal braces are a traditional form of orthodontic treatment that involves bands, brackets, wires and spacers to gradually realign crooked teeth.

In more recent years, clear aligners have been created as an alternative solution for moving teeth. Invisalign is a popular brand of clear aligners in the Gold Coast. Ever since clear aligners have made their way into the dental industry, there has been much conversation and debate over whether braces or Invisalign are better as a long-lasting smile enhancing solution.

Interestingly, braces and clear aligners work by the same theory: they both place gentle pressure on teeth to slowly move them into a more ideal position in the mouth. The controlled force moves the teeth to ultimately improve the appearance of a smile and allow for better functionality and health. They are typically recommended for people that have overcrowded or crooked teeth.

However, it is obvious that Palm Beach Invisalign is gaining much more popularity than old-school braces treatment. Some of the reasons why many people are now opting for Invisalign as opposed to metal braces include:

  • Invisalign is often a cheaper option than braces (the Dental Haus, a no gap dentist Palm Beach, offers Invisalign from just $4,000)
  • Invisalign is virtually an invisible treatment option, whereas metal braces are notable on teeth
  • Invisalign clear aligners are easy to remove, if that is ever necessary
  • Invisalign clear aligners have a smooth surface, so they are less likely to cause gum/tongue pain and ulcers in the mouth

The treatment time for both braces and Invisalign in the Gold Coast varies greatly, so no one option will necessarily be better for you in that regard. Both options have been proven to deliver effective and long-lasting smile improvement. Additionally, both treatment options will require you to visit your Gold Coast Dental Haus on a regular basis (usually every six to eight weeks) to ensure that everything is progressing as anticipated.

 

The bottom line

Ultimately, the best decision for you will depend on your personal circumstances and the specific advice given to you from your trusted dental professional. While Gold Coast Invisalign is certainly a more modern and popular treatment, some people will prefer traditional braces.
