Braces vs. Aligners: Making the
Right Choice

When it comes to achieving a straighter smile, two popular options stand out: traditional braces and clear aligners.
But what sets them apart? Let’s break it down:

Braces:

  • Structure: Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets attached to your teeth, connected by wires.
  • Visibility: They are more noticeable due to their metallic appearance.
  • Adjustments: Regular adjustments are required by an orthodontist.
  • Dietary Restrictions: Certain foods may need to be avoided.
  • Treatment Duration: Typically, treatment takes around 1-3 years.

Aligners:

  • Structure: Clear aligners are custom-made, transparent trays that fit snugly over your teeth.
  • Visibility: They are virtually invisible, making them discreet.
  • Convenience: No wires or brackets mean fewer discomfort issues.
  • Removable: You can take them out for eating and cleaning.
  • Treatment Duration: Treatment duration varies but is often shorter than braces.

Ultimately, the choice between braces and aligners depends on your specific dental needs and lifestyle. Consult with Dr.Newton to determine which option is right for you.

What is the difference between SureSmile and Invisalign?

In 1998, Invisalign revolutionized orthodontics with clear aligners, offering an alternative to traditional braces. While Invisalign remains a well-established choice, SureSmile, a strong competitor, offers unique features. Both treatments effectively address various alignment issues; SureSmile provides customization options, while Invisalign boasts a trusted reputation. The aligner cut, affecting treatment efficacy, differs: Invisalign uses a scalloped cut, complemented by attachments, while SureSmile offers flexibility, allowing doctors to choose between scalloped and straight cuts with adjustable overlap. Convenience-wise, both require periodic in-person visits, and treatment durations vary but are generally similar. In terms of appearance, SureSmile’s shiny, textured aligners differ from Invisalign’s frosted, textured ones, with both potentially employing discreet attachments that allow for micro adjustments by our Orthodontist for extraordinary control over tooth movement.
