Braces vs Invisalign

Braces vs Invisalign

Got crowded teeth and don’t know the best option for you? Check out this video!

Hi, my name is Dr Michael Ghobrial from Sure Dental. We see a lot of young adults and teenagers with tooth crowding and the question that I hear most commonly is, “What should I do? Should I get conventional braces or should I go for Invisalign?” And I thought I’d do this video to help you in considering and deciding what could be the best option for you.

Let’s start with Conventional Braces…

Now the benefits of conventional braces is that they are not reliant on you. The result is dependent on the clinician so you don’t have to worry about taking them in and out. They are there and they’re active the whole time they’re with you.

The other benefits are nowadays we can use ceramic braces so they’re not quite as obvious as the traditional metal braces. Also, with certain bites, they will respond better to the fixed conventional braces. So they are the benefits of conventional braces.

Now let’s talk about Invisalign…

The benefits of Invisalign is that you can hardly see them. I myself had Invisalign as a thirty-one-year-old and my patients didn’t even notice I was going through it. The other beautiful thing about Invisalign is you can take them in and out when you eat and when you clean your teeth, which makes things easy. And also you don’t have wires and brackets sticking into your cheeks. So it doesn’t affect your speech and things like that quite as much. Like conventional braces, there are actually some crowding issues and bites that are actually better served with Invisalign.

Nowadays, both are very effective, both work very well, and it really is dependent on the individual, their concern and also what they’re looking for.
