I have allergy to metal so prefer Invisilign braces. Can they fix off center teeth?

I have allergy to metal so prefer Invisilign braces. Can they fix off center teeth?

Sometimes: Invisalign is a slower and less capable method of treating malocclusion than regular braces. If your teeth aren't too far off center and there aren't any issues like cross bites and jaw asymmetries, then perhaps you can correct the problem with Invisalign. Your Orthodontist will tell you if (s)he thinks it's feasible. If not there are non metal ceramic braces that will do the job. Read more

Invisalign (Definition)

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are clear plastic trays designed to tip your teeth into improved alignment. They are extremely esthetic, and must be worn >22 hours/day to be effective. They are not a braces substitute, are only about 60% as effective, take longer, are more expensive, and don't provide as much post-treatment stability. See an Orthodontic ...Read more

Hey I am having invisalign braces & before I had no prob with pronouncing S but now I am having a lisp with and without the braces. How can I fix that?

Be patient: It is very common for the speech to be affected during active Invisalign treatment. Pronouncing words that begin with the letter "S is the most common complaint. It will improve as the teeth move into alignment. Always make sure that your dentist is aware so that he/she can give you the right solution. Good luck. Read more

Don't want metal braces? How much is invisalign?

Don't want metal braces? How much is invisalign?

$6K to $7K: With invisalign. You get a very experienced dentist and you get terrific results. My advice to you is to not shop for price but shop for great results, both in your bite & appearance. In straightening teeth, experience & training makes for the best results. Much like a finish carpenter can create beautiful things & a basic carpenter can hammer nails & do basic work. Results vary. Quality is key. Read more

Which works faster: invisalign or metal braces?

Which works faster: invisalign or metal braces?

Depends on patients!: Patient compliance is an important factor when comparing the duration of treatment with invisalign vs. Braces. Both invisalign and braces work only by being placed and staying on teeth. If invisalign is not being worn on a full time basis, the correction it can provide will become limited to the time it's being worn. The same delay can occur if braces break frequently from eating hard food. Read more

Invisalign or braces, which is better for teens?

Invisalign or braces, which is better for teens?

Braces: First of all make sure you're seeing a qualified Orthodontist for Rx. Second, braces Rx can provide about 95% improvement in teens. Clear aligners (that only work if they are worn) result in less than 50% improvement. Talk this over with a pro, an Orthodontist. And if you wish get a second opinion. Wouldn't use it for my family.

What is the difference between ceramic braces and Invisalign?

What is the difference between ceramic braces and Invisalign?

The difference is...: Ceramic braces are attached to your teeth. They are harder to clean but you don't have to worry about losing them. Invisalign is removable. This makes cleaning your teeth easier, but if you lose them or forget to put them in they will not work. So which is better partially depends on the patient's personally. Also ceramic braces can correct some conditions that invisalign can not. Read more

What is the difference in the overall cost of ceramic braces and Invisalign?

What is the difference in the overall cost of ceramic braces and Invisalign?

Wrong question: Correct question would be, "What's the best treatment for my malocclusion? " First, see an Orthodontist (who has the answers), not a GP, for your specialty treatment. Second, braces are still the gold standard, much more effective than braces. Third, properly done clear Aligners are more expensive. Read more

I am thinking about getting braces again to fix my overjet. Could invisalign or incognito braces fix it?

Again?: Before undertaking treatment it is mandatory to determine what caused "again." Was relapse due failure to completely resolve original malocclusion, a skeletal imbalance, failure to retain the original correction, or many other reasons. Choice of gadget, the Orthodontic Appliance, should made based on the diagnostic findings, not on a magazine advertisement. Please see an Orthodontic Specialist. Read more

My orthodontist wanted to switch me from braces to invisalign. Does he really need to remove the braces first before doing the iTero scanning?

My orthodontist wanted to switch me from braces to invisalign. Does he really need to remove the braces first before doing the iTero scanning?

Yes: Unusual to switch from braces to Aligners as braces better at finishing detail. Braces have to be removed before scan or will prevent imaging the part of the tooth under each brace. Entire tooth surface must be imaged to allow best aligner fabrication. Read more

Enjoy your vacation: If you cannot easily get into the next aligner, ask your dentist to order you a replacement for the ones you lost. They may be able to have it sent to where you are or have it waiting for you when you get home. Read more

How to tell if I need braces or invisalign for my teeth?

How to tell if I need braces or invisalign for my teeth?

See a Pro: See an Orthodontic Specialist for a qualified answer, for the same reasons you would see a brain surgeon rather than a GP to treat your brain lesion. Know that clear aligners may be applicable to resolve your malocclusion, but are only about half as effective as braces. So you may have to decide the level of "cure" you want for yourself.
