How are braces different from aligners?

Of course, aligners are a new word in teeth alignment. Unlike braces, aligners are removable and wash well with a brush and paste. They and do not complicate daily oral hygiene and do not have a significant effect on tooth enamel. Braces, on the other hand, require more complex daily hygiene, as they themselves contribute to the formation of plaque in places that are difficult to clean.

The transparent bite correction plate does not put painful pressure on the teeth. Adaptation to it takes place quickly, and the movement of teeth to the planned position is gradual.

When wearing aligners, the number of visits to the dentist is reduced to once every 2-3 months. While bite correction on braces requires a visit to the orthodontist’s office once every 1-1.5 months.

A big advantage is that transparent orthodontics has a predictable treatment outcome. Preliminary scanning of the oral cavity and computer 3D modeling of the treatment plan allow you to see how the position of the teeth will change during the treatment.

Aligners or braces – which is better? Both are tools in the hands of an orthodontist. Each has its pros and cons.
