If you’re considering orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth and have been doing some research, you may be wondering if traditional braces are a better fit for your needs than clear aligners. This choice depends on your unique needs. Invisalign is effective for mild to moderate cases, while traditional braces handle more complex cases. The best orthodontist in South Jordan, UT, will explain more considerations here.

Your Specific Case

Many simple orthodontic cases involving slightly crooked or gapped teeth can be easily addressed with Invisalign. Aligners may not work for patients with complex issues, extra teeth, or severe overbites or underbites — for these issues, you will generally need traditional braces. While it’s disappointing to some patients, providing you with optimal orthodontic health for a beautiful, straight smile is our top priority!

Compliance & Care

If you are a candidate for Invisalign, you will need to consider what it takes to comply with the schedule. While the aligners are convenient and removable, they still need to be worn for 22 hours per day to be effective. Additionally, you will need to brush your teeth after each meal as well as the aligners to prevent bacteria from building up inside the trays, which can cause cavities and staining.

Traditional braces are a better option if you don’t want to worry about carrying around supplies to brush your trays, or believe you will experience the temptation to leave the aligners out, rendering them ineffective.

Benefits & Treatment Outcomes

For mild to moderate cases with 100% compliance, you can expect nothing less than your ideal smile at the end of Invisalign treatment. If you meet all the criteria and choose clear aligners for your treatment, you will enjoy numerous benefits, including discretion, easy brushing and flossing, fewer orthodontic appointments, and even shorter treatment times.

If you have a more complicated orthodontic case, such as severe misalignment or a jaw abnormality, you may need traditional braces. While not as discreet, traditional braces are tried-and-true, extremely effective, smaller, and more comfortable than ever before. You can rest assured that this treatment will adjust your teeth perfectly and give you the smile you want!
