There are a plethora of choices when it comes to finding the perfect orthodontic corrective appliance to reveal a healthy and beautiful smile. Braces and Invisalign are among the more popular solutions but there are important differences between the two that will help you identify which is the most fitting choice to suit your specific needs.

  • Traditional braces consist of a small bracket that is glued to the front of each tooth and the molars are adjusted with a band that encircles the tooth. They are permanent for the time that one is required to wear them (the average time is about two years) and are extremely effective for correcting more severe issues. Braces can be clear (ceramic) braces which means the material can made to be either transparent or to match the color of the your teeth, camouflaging them. Traditional braces are used to correct issues like crossbites, malocclusions, very crooked teeth, and various other flaws of teeth and the jaw. These corrective appliances can make it difficult to eat sticky or crunchy food. Taking extra care to brush brackets and wires regularly while brushing teeth and using a water pick may be helpful. Brushing after every meal is ideal for oral health when wearing braces. Follow up visits are needed on a six to eight week basis for tightening of the braces, each time they are pushed closer to where they need to be.
  • Invisalign is a progressive, clear aligner, which is used to gradually move teeth into their final positions. This method of treatment is ideal for those who do not need to rotate canines, premolars or move teeth vertically. Unlike traditional braces, this orthodontic appliance is discreet and removable. Depending on one’s needs it can be worn from 6 to 18 months but still varies person to person. Invisalign works by tilting or rotating the teeth (including the roots).  Teeth are moved closer to the right position without the need for wires or tightening by having the aligners replaced by your dentist every two weeks. It is easier to eat all the foods one enjoys because there is no wiring for food to get caught in. Although it is much easier to eat, extra oral care is still needed as well as using a cleaning system and rinsing trays in luke warm water. One must maintain brushing after every meal and flossing twice a day.

Braces and Invisalign are fantastic ways to achieve a beautiful smile that can light up a room. Knowing the significant differences between each option can help when aiming to understand which option can supply one’s desired results. Both aligners have pros and cons as well as proven efficacy, it is just a matter of having your dentist find the right solution for your specific needs. Please come into any of our offices at A Dental Care for a free consultation.

Have you ever wondered if you could give yourself a straight and beautiful smile you always dreamed of? If so, you are not alone. Many people wish they had ideal alignment in their teeth without the painful process of traditional braces. Luckily, our staff here at A Dental Care in Houston, Texas, is happy to provide you with information about Invisalign®, so you can see if Invisalign is right for you.

Invisalign is a series of thin, clear, custom-made aligners that fit tightly over your teeth. They snap on and off your teeth, making them easy to remove as you eat, brush, and floss your teeth each day. The aligners are clear, which makes them hard to be seen by others as you receive treatment. Approximately every two weeks, you switch out your aligner for a new one, which gives your teeth the gentle push into the ideal alignment.

In the wake of conversing with a considerable lot of our patients throughout the long term, we’re completely mindful that supports don’t address everybody’s issues. We offer Invisalign clear aligners as another option. Assuming you need straighter teeth – however you don’t need the problem of wearing supports – we can get you fitted with Invisalign clear aligners that will accept care of the position.

Consider these three benefits of choosing Invisalign clear aligners to work on your grin.

1. You won’t feel self-conscious while wearing Invisalign

No one likes the way that traditional braces look. Teenagers often hate them because braces make them feel self-conscious. Adults hate them even more because they think that braces make them look juvenile.

With Invisalign, though, you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious.

Invisalign makes its aligners from SmartTrackⓇ material, which is clear. You can still see the aligner if you look closely, but it’s not nearly as obvious as traditional metal braces.

Invisalign aligners fit perfectly because an iTeroElementⓇ scanner captures a 3D image of your teeth, and those specifications are used to create your custom-made aligners. The better your aligner fits, the less noticeable it is and the more effective it is at straightening your teeth.

2. You can remove Invisalign at any time

When you get braces put on your teeth, you can’t take them off — ever. The braces are there until you get them removed.

With Invisalign, you can take the aligners out of your mouth when needed. In fact, you typically have about two hours each day when you don’t have to wear your aligners. Dr. Firoz Lalani determines how long you need to wear your Invisalign clear aligners each day to get the best results.

The option to take out your aligners gives you a lot of freedom. For instance, you can take your Invisalign out while you eat meals. With metal braces, you have to avoid chewy, crunchy, sticky, and hard foods, but you don’t have that problem with Invisalign. Just take your aligners out when you want to chew gum, eat corn on the cob, or snack on pretzels.

Removing Invisalign can also help you feel more confident in certain situations. You may want to take your aligner out for special occasions, like when giving important presentations, going on a date, or meeting new people.

3. Invisalign can straighten teeth faster than conventional braces

Many of our patients find that Invisalign gives them faster results than traditional braces. Once you get fitted for your first set of Invisalign aligners, you’ll receive a new aligner about every two weeks. Some people can even take advantage of weekly aligner changes, which work even faster.

Each new aligner brings your teeth closer to alignment. This step-wise process means that you get straight teeth on a predictable timeline. By the end of your schedule, you’ll have beautiful teeth that you’re proud to show off.

Most people use Invisalign for 12-18 months, but we know that each of our patients has unique needs. Invisalign isn’t the perfect option for everyone, but more often than not, we find that Invisalign gives people the results that they want faster and with fewer restrictions than conventional braces.

Invisalign can correct a number of different alignment issues. Some of these issues include under-bites, overbites, cross-bites, or spacing problems, along with any other oral health alignment needs your dentist can see. However, Invisalign is not for everyone. Your dentist Dr. Firoz Lalani will be able to determine if Invisalign is the right fit for you.

As you can see, Invisalign is a great way to align your smile into ideal alignment without the metal wires and brackets. If you still have questions, or would like to speak to a member of our professional staff, call us today at and set up an appointment. Our team is happy to give you any information on Invisalign and assist with your oral care needs.

Here at A Dental Care, we strive to give you the positive oral health you deserve and the sparkling smile you always wanted. Invisalign® is a popular way to achieve proper oral alignment very discreetly. That is why Invisalign has become a very popular form of treatment.

Invisalign is a popular substitute for braces. Invisalign is made out of very thin, clear, custom-made aligners, which makes them extremely hard to see by others. These aligners are designed to give your teeth a gentle push into their proper alignment. About every two weeks, you trade your set of aligners in for a new set until you complete your treatment.

Invisalign is popular because of the discreteness of the system and the ease of care it takes for them. Because they are not made of metal, they simply snap on, over your teeth. This is helpful because you can take them off easily as you eat or brush your teeth. The aligners will need to be worn for at least 22 hours of the day. This will help keep your treatment time on track.

Here are some flaws Invisalign aligners can correct in your smile:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Overly crowded teeth

We are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your oral care.
