Braces are a very common form of cosmetic treatment, helping to straighten your crooked teeth or fix other related dental issues. However, the types of braces available to you has developed over the years, and there are now more braces available than ever before. The most common debate about types of braces is often which is better, invisible or metal?

What are Invisible and Metal Braces?

Invisible braces are considered to be a revolutionary tooth straightening treatment, allowing you to fix dental issues in a very discrete way. The clear braces are virtually invisible and are very comfortable, using BPA-free plastic to guide your teeth into their new and improved position. Invisalign are the most popular providers of invisible braces, using specialist technology to find the most effective solution tailored to you.

Metal braces are the more traditional form of braces, using metal, rubber brands and braces to form the braces that will straighten your teeth. Metal braces have also developed over the years, meaning that you have more control over the appearance of them.

Invisible Braces vs Metal Braces

Invisible braces, such as those produced by Invisalign, are much more pleasant on the eye when compared to traditional metal braces, whilst they are also much more comfortable too. Metal braces use metal and wires to straighten your teeth, whereas invisible braces use plastic, making them much more appealing and comfortable. As clear braces are easily removed, they can be cleaned very easily, and you are able to stay on top of your oral hygiene with no problems.

Metal braces do still have their place within the world of orthodontics, providing you with an option that has been proven over a number of years to be an effective tooth straightening solution. As they are fixed to your teeth, they are also much more reliable as they do not require you to make sure that you are wearing them.

Despite this, invisible braces do remain as one of the most popular and effective solutions to crooked teeth. They offer you unrivalled comfort, practicality and discreteness, as well as guaranteed, quality results.
