Invisalign or braces? Many a man has fallen under the strain that this decision brings... Okay, it's not that serious, but knowing which one to get can be a pretty big deal.
Both braces and Invisalign have their advantages and disadvantages, so you need to know which one best suits you before you throw up your hard-earned cash.
So how exactly do you do that? Simple: you keep on reading this article.
We'll go into depth about the pros and cons of both Invisalign and braces, and after doing a bit of compare and contrast we'll leave it up to you to make the decision.
Both braces and Invisalign have one goal: to straighten your teeth and give you a better smile.
That being said, it's not about what the product does, but how it affects you, the wearer. While not everyone is affected the same way by these products, there are general benefits and problems that are shared amongst the public.
When it comes to braces, one could say that the original is still the best. They wouldn't be far from the truth.
Braces have stuck around for so long because they get the job done, and done right.
First off, they're much better than Invisalign at fixing more complicated teeth errors because of the pressure they can add. This same pressure allows you to fix your teeth faster than Invisalign as well.
For most people "better" and "faster" are all they need to hear, but here's a word of caution before you take the leap.
Braces have been known to be uncomfortable and can sometimes even cut into your gums. Consider this before you rock a pair yourself.
Invisalign is the hottest new thing on the market for straightening out your teeth, and for good reason.
Invisalign is a mold that is custom-made to fit your mouth, which allows for a smoother experience than the "tweak to fit" braces.
The biggest reason why people choose Invisalign is because it's - you guessed it - invisible. Unlike braces, which make some people feel like they're back in the fifth grade, Invisalign hides perfectly around your teeth.
Also, since there aren't any wires to wear, you can wear them without fear of having your gums ripped out (okay, it's not that bad, but still...).
Keep in mind, though, that while they may look and feel pretty, they aren't too hot at doing any major makeovers. Even the small jobs take them a while to complete due to the lack of pressure on the teeth.
All in all, whether you get braces or Invisalign is totally up to you. But no matter which one you pick you can be sure you'll end up looking and feeling great.
