When it comes to straightening your teeth, you have two main options: braces and clear aligners. While both are effective in achieving the desired result, clear aligners tend to be faster than braces. This is because the trays are customized over the course of treatment, with new aligners being made every few weeks. Prices for Invisalign and braces are comparable, although more complex cases require more treatment time and materials, increasing the total cost.
Traditional metal braces are usually cheaper than Invisalign, but if you're looking for a discrete treatment option, Invisalign is less expensive than lingual (internal) braces and is comparable to the cost of transparent (ceramic) braces. Invisalign clear aligners are widely known for their virtually invisible treatment, but they also have additional benefits that could make them the right treatment option for you. Unlike braces, Invisalign uses transparent plastic aligners and teeth-colored buttons (accessories) placed on the teeth to move teeth to the desired position. Clear aligners are suitable for responsible adolescents and older adults who can keep up with treatment.
While button-shaped accessories are similar to the color of your teeth, it may look like you're wearing clear braces instead of aligners.It is important to follow the instructions for using these clear aligners in order to obtain optimal results. Orthodontic appliances may achieve a better result than Invisalign, as they have more strength to move teeth to the desired position. Invisalign is limited in the number of teeth that can be moved at one time. If your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you'll pay the same amount to cover the cost of Invisalign.
