Patients who need to straighten their teeth to achieve the healthy smile of their dreams have more options today than ever before. With that increased choice, though, comes an increase in information they need to make the right choice. While innovative orthodontic solutions are reaching more patients than ever before and making their lives better, there are also many people who feel they are well-suited to traditional braces. Here are some things to consider if you are weighing an option like Invisalign for your orthodontic needs.

Lower Profile, Strong, and Removable

When you use the Invisalign clear trays provided through this system, you are actually trading out a series of robust and close-fitting retainer trays rather than a traditional and fixed system of brackets. This means the whole tooth is moved at once which also means you can remove the Invisalign trays for comfort and hygiene while eating. That means:

  • Less impact on daily activities
  • Invisible trays are undetectable during regular conversations and daily tasks
  • Regular visits for progress monitoring and regular replacement of trays as the patient’s teeth realign

The system works incredibly well for those who use it, providing moderate alignment change with less discomfort and more adaptability than traditional braces.

Am I a Candidate?

As great as Invisalign is, there are a few reasons that traditional braces are still as popular as they are. One is because this system does have limits to the amount of change it can bring to your smile. Candidates with extreme changes to be made might find traditional braces are necessary for all or part of the treatment. Only a consultation with a dentist in Palm Harbor, FL, can tell you for sure if you will be able to take advantage of the Invisalign orthodontic treatment.
