When the teeth are not well aligned it is difficult to achieve this smile and that is why you need a straightening procedure to give you aligned teeth and a beautiful smile. When choosing if to use braces or Invisalign for your teeth then the decision will be based on several factors such as the ones below.
Appearance is one of the differences between braces and Invisalign. Invisalign is not detectable and so many people will go for the Invisalign procedure as compared to visible braces. Invisalign is made of clear trays made of plastic while braces are made of metal.
When you are straightening the teeth, you will feel uncomfortable whether you are using braces or Invisalign. Invisalign is considered to be better for it applies less pressure to the teeth, if you play contact sport then this means that you can go for metal braces.
Braces straighten teeth and have been used for a long time in the past you will have to wear braces each day each hour since a patient cannot remove braces. The traditional braces are more effective for a patient will not remove them at any time of the day. With Invisalign, many patients remove them when they feel uncomfortable making them less effective.
