Comparison of Invisalign Vs. Traditional Metal Braces NYC FAQ
Do metal braces work faster than Invisalign?
Both Invisalign and traditional metal braces both take around the same amount of time to move your teeth into their new alignment. In general, both metal braces and Invisalign are worn for approximately 6-18 months.
Is Invisalign better than traditional?
The main advantage Invisalign has over traditional metal braces is the ability to remove them. This allows patients to eat without any limitations or restrictions that can be caused by traditional metal braces.
Which is better metal or clear braces?
One of the main advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces is the aesthetics. With Invisalign, patients wear a clear aligner over their teeth that can be virtually undetectable.
Are braces more effective than aligners?
Invisalign and traditional metal braces both treat many of the same things. For many patients they can be equally effective in treating crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, crooked teeth and mild bite problems of misalignment. Traditional metal braces may have an advantage over Invisalign in that they may be more effective when it comes to rotating teeth.
