Is Invisalign better than braces?

Invisalign in Topeka and traditional braces correct misaligned teeth and give you the smile you’ve been looking for. However, most patients prefer the benefits and discretion of Invisalign.

Traditional braces rely on guidewires and tooth brackets to straighten teeth. They can feel bulky and draw attention to your treatment. Invisalign, on the other hand, is made of clear plastic. It is lightweight and almost invisible.

Benefits of Invisalign in Topeka

Besides comfort and discretion, you can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat and clean your teeth. This makes eating more enjoyable and brushing and flossing sessions more productive.

With Invisalign, you typically see the dentist less often during treatment compared with traditional braces. This is because you can change out your aligners on your own. But braces require frequent visits to the dentist for adjustments.

Both systems can help with the following:

  • Misaligned bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Unusual spacing

Additionally, Invisalign and traditional braces promote better oral health by leveling your bite surface and allowing for easier brushing and flossing.
