Is Invisalign as good as braces? What is the best option for my situation?
Invisalign has come a long way and it is an amazing way to move teeth. Not only is it cosmetically more pleasing, but it is less painful than braces. Invisalign can move teeth in most situations. However, it gets a bit more difficult when there are major changes in the bite that have to be accomplished. Often it takes a bit longer, or may require additional things like rubber bands.
Traditional braces will straighten teeth and close gaps in 99% of all cases. The only time traditional braces won’t help is if jaw surgery is also required. The advantage of braces is that they are your teeth 24/7 and do not rely on you being compliant in wearing your Invisalign trays.
Fastbraces is a brand we also use that helps get results in a shorter time frame. It can cut treatment time to half.
