If you want straighter, better-aligned teeth, you can choose between traditional metal braces and invisible braces. Although each work in much the same way, if you are an adult or teen, metal brackets may make you feel self-conscious about your smile. For this reason, invisible braces in North York could be the better option for you.
As the name suggests, no one will know you are wearing invisible braces. Unlike traditional braces, which are very noticeable, invisible braces are made from clear plastic aligners making it almost unseen by others.
The cost for invisible braces in North York is often much the same as that for traditional metal braces.
Although you may feel some discomfort every time you receive new aligners, this quickly dissipates. This type of brace should never rub against the side of your mouth — if there are any sharp edges, return to your dental clinic for an adjustment.
You can remove this brace any time you want. This means there are no dietary restrictions and no risk of food caught in your braces.
This type of brace can correct the alignment of your teeth in as little as six months and usually require a maximum of just 18 months. Metal braces, in contrast, will need to stay on your teeth for an average of two years.
Uses of Invisible Braces
It is easy to keep invisible braces clean. Simply remove them from your mouth, brush them, and then rinse with lukewarm water.
Although you will need to change your aligner every two weeks, you will only need to visit your dentist every four to six weeks. It is important that you always keep track of your next dental visit.
