Braces vs Invisalign Treatment in Miami
The time required to straighten teeth can be daunting. Most orthodontic treatments with braces average about 18 to 24 months long. If you didn’t get braces as a kid or maybe just never wore your retainer, and you are considering straightening your teeth again, you should consider Invisalign.
Does Invisalign Work Faster Than Braces?
Aside from the obvious aesthetic advantage over braces, Invisalign can be done faster than the same treatment with braces in many cases. This makes Invisalign the preferred choice of adults and teens for straightening teeth. After all, who wants to suffer through two years of braces when Invisalign can be done faster.
How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth?
How much faster you ask? The speed of Invisalign really depends on the case. The benefit it that because Invisalign uses 3D technology to plan tooth movement. Different movements can be done simultaneously. Braces, on the other hand, require movements be done sequentially. For example, when two teeth next to each other require different movements, Invisalign can do both movements at the same time. With braces, one tooth would have to be aligned first then the other. This makes treatment time last longer with braces.
If you are looking to align your teeth, consider Invisalign. It looks better. It’s more comfortable. And it many cases Invisalign is faster than braces. If you are in Miami, living or working near the Edgewater District, stop by Biscayne Wellness Center for a free consultation.
