Having straight teeth will make you feel more confident about your smile, but it also means an end to discomfort as well as difficulties flossing between your teeth, which may put you at greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Here at Dynamic Dental, you have a choice between traditional metal braces and the innovative Invisalign clear braces.
Our orthodontist in North Las Vegas will examine your teeth and do an evaluation of your need for braces. Except in the most challenging and problematic cases, you should be able to use either option. The question is simply a matter of which is best suited to your unique needs and comfort level. Metal braces are no longer the heavy and unattractive monstrosities they once were. The ones that our orthodontist in North Las Vegas fits you with are lightweight and look good on you. They are fixed, which is to say that you cannot remove them. They remain in from the moment your treatment starts until the moment it ends. That could be a plus if you don’t want to concern yourself with taking your braces out and putting them back in all the time. Invisalign is different from metal braces in many ways, not least of which is the cosmetic factor. The clear plastic aligners that comprise their teeth straightening system are invisible, so you can go about the things you do every day without giving a thought to what you look like with braces on. No one else can see them. Invisalign is also removable. You take them out on only three occasions, though. First is when you eat. Unlike with metal braces, you won’t be restricted from having any of your favorite foods. Second is to brush and floss, which makes your oral hygiene more effective. Third is every two weeks when you take out your current set of aligners, discard them, and put in the next set.
