Looking to Get Braces? Be Sure to Look at Invisalign®

Posted .

If you are looking into getting a pair of braces to help straighten your smile, Rivera Orthodontics is here to help. There are options available to you, and one of the most popular brands is Invisalign®, clear plastic aligners. The Invisalign brand has become popular because of features it offers that traditional metal braces do not. There are some issues that Invisalign may have trouble treating, however.

Invisalign offers the wearer discretion and convenience. The clear plastic aligners straighten the user’s teeth without being noticeable to the public, unlike metal braces. This feature has made Invisalign popular among adults who are looking into getting braces.

The design of the aligner trays allows the user to remove them before meals or brushing their teeth, which allows them to continue routines as normal. That is something they wouldn’t be able to do with metal braces, which can’t be removed until the treatment is completed.

Invisalign does have difficulty treating some issues, and metal braces may be required in these circumstances. If you have teeth that need height correction or have become twisted, Invisalign may not be for you. Dr. Jaime Rivera will help you choose the best type of braces for you.
