If you have thought about straightening your teeth, it's important to learn about the various orthodontic treatments available in Mississauga. You will need to compare the costs, comfort and effectiveness of various treatments, as well as consult with the dentist.
We offer no obligation free consultations at our Mississauga dental clinic so you can discuss this with the dentist and make an informed decision.
Both braces and Invisalign are designed to straighten teeth while improving your smile and oral health. Modern braces come with different variations of materials like metal (traditional braces), ceramic braces, lingual braces, and self-ligating braces. Braces are attached to your teeth while Invisalign and other clear aligners are removable.
If you’re an adult or have a teen, who tends to be self-conscious, Invisalign may appeal to you. And the fact that it’s removable so you can eat, drink, brush and floss more naturally, may sound desirable. But if the idea of having to remove your trays for meals or while drinking anything but water seems inconvenient, Invisalign may not be the best solution for you. Plus remember, you should brush after each meal before putting your trays back in, to avoid staining.
It is possible to fall out of a good routine with Invisalign, by neglecting to put them back in after meals, for instance, or forgetting to sleep with them in. For that reason, some patients prefer braces, because they don't require you to keep track of the aligners when they are not in your mouth. Compliance is still important; brushing and flossing regularly, visits to the dentist, etc; but you don't need to worry about losing the appliance.
