Options for Orthodontic Treatment

Everybody wants a beautiful, straight smile and the confidence that comes with it. When your teeth are crooked or misaligned, it can prevent us from having the confidence we all want. Fortunately, there are many options available to get the smile you’ve always wanted. An orthodontist can help you straighten out your teeth using several different methods. Two of perhaps the most popular methods of orthodontic treatment are braces and Invisalign. There are pros and cons to both, and understanding the advantages and disadvantages will help you decide which of the two choices is better for you. Below is a brief comparison of braces and Invisalign.

Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment. Braces involve brackets that are attached to your teeth using a strong adhesive. A wire runs through these brackets and is periodically tightened which shifts your teeth gradually into their desired position.

Braces are one of the most effective and fastest orthodontic tools out there. The advantage of braces is that they work efficiently and usually quickly relative to other orthodontic treatment options. Braces can treat crowded teeth, unwanted spacing, crossbites, overbites, and underbites. Orthodontists in Chicago’s West Loop

Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are a series of clear plastic trays that are placed over top of your teeth. Gradually over time, these aligner trays shift your teeth into the desired position. The trays are made for you and only you. About every two weeks, you graduate to a new set of aligners that are slightly closer to the final position of your treatment.

The biggest advantages of Invisalign trays are that they are transparent and removable. For those who are put off by the idea of permanent metal braces affixed to their teeth, Invisalign can be a good option because people will barely even notice you wearing them. They are also removable so that when you are eating, you don’t have to worry about food getting caught in the brackets and wires of traditional braces. They also won’t interfere with normal brushing and flossing like braces do.
