Invisalign vs. Braces

by | Aug 16, 2022 | General & Preventive Dentistry, Invisalign Dentist, Oral Health

The classic image most people conjure when imagining the process of correcting misaligned teeth is that of metal braces. The traditional braces so many folks are familiar with come with a variety of unwelcome traits, from the old-fashioned wire-and-bracket aesthetics to having to avoid certain foods. It’s certainly true that having braces affixed to your teeth for a matter of years can be more of a commitment than you might like, making an alternative solution like Crownsville Invisalign far more appealing.

Crownsville Invisalign differs from braces in two major ways: they are removable and virtually invisible. Created through advanced dental technology, Invisalign dentists use a sophisticated computer program to create a series of aligners unique to your teeth. The aligners are made out of a flexible plastic called SmartTrack, which was patented exclusively for Invisalign. 

Metal braces can interfere with normal brushing and flossing and also prevent you from eating foods like popcorn which can get stuck and create complications.Crownsville Invisalign, on the other hand, allows you to take care of your oral health as you normally would because it is removable. Better yet, you can continue enjoying all of your favorite foods without restriction!
