The Invisalign System
Invisalign has nudged out traditional metal braces as the treatment of choice for those needing their teeth straightened. One of the main advantages that Invisalign wearers appreciate is that the system is extremely comfortable to wear.
Traditional metal braces are certainly effective in straightening teeth, but they tend to be overly prominent in the mouth. Also, many patients feel uncomfortable due to all of those metal wires and brackets.
- Virtually invisible to others
- More comfortable than traditional metal braces
- Conveniently removable before eating or cleaning your teeth
The Invisalign system itself utilizes clear aligners Brighton patients prefer over traditional metal braces. These are custom-made products that are designed to fit your unique teeth and bite. Your aligners are swapped out for a new set. You must wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day. This assures a successful treatment.
The ClearCorrect System
ClearCorrect clear aligners Brighton is a similar type of system to Invisalign, straightening your teeth through the use of clear plastic aligners. The trays are transparent and virtually invisible.The frequency of the needed changes and the number of aligners used depend upon your individual treatment plan and the severity of your problem.
ClearCorrect typically costs less than half of what Invisalign does.
One key difference between the two teeth straightening systems is that the ClearCorrect aligners are slightly thinner than those used by Invisalign, making them even less visible. One drawback is that they are not as durable and sturdy and are sharper at the edges.
Conditions Helped by Invisalign and ClearCorrect
Overbite: This is when your upper teeth reach beyond your bottom teeth, which can be caused by poor oral habits, genetics or underdeveloped bones. An overbite can lead to gum problems, irritation and painful jaw problems.
Crowded teeth: If there is not room within your jaw, your teeth may become overly crowded. This can lead to problems like the accumulation of plaque that causes gum disease, since it is more difficult to clean crowded teeth that may be harder to reach.
Open bite: This can occur when a proper bite cannot be formed because some teeth are not making physical contact with their corresponding teeth. Open bite can lead to difficult or painful chewing, TMJ disorder and speech impairment.
