Lingual Braces vs Invisalign

  [caption id="attachment_1107" align="aligncenter" width="500"]King Orthodontics brittanysoup via Compfight cc[/caption]   Invisalign is a system that has been made of clear plastic aligners, and they are changed every couple of weeks. They slowly move the teeth to the required direction. On the other hand, Lingual braces are appliances that are fixed so that they bond at the back of the teeth. A choice between Invisalign or lingual braces can be very tough, when you do not have the required advice from an experienced orthodontist.  In this article, there is a clear contrast of the two teeth alignment treatment methods, in order to guide you to the most convenient choice. Adults usually prefer Invisalign when it is compared to Lingual Braces. When it comes to having braces at the back of the teeth, adult patients sometimes seem to have a lot of difficulties. They claim that their tongues are very sensitive to any appliance that is kept in the mouth. When a person choses Invisalign treatment, he or she is not limited to the types of foods that they are supposed to eat, this is unlike other appliances that are used as treatment in orthodontics. Most orthodontic experts also argue that all patients who usually have lingual braces have limitations to what they are supposed to eat, just as it is with the patients who have traditional braces. At the same time, Invisalign is also known to provide with a good teeth movement. It successfully works in the struggle to correct teeth misalignments as well as avoiding cases of under bite and overbite. Lingual braces are a special type of braces that are bonded at the backside of the teeth hence in most cases they are hidden making it an ideal option for the people who prefer invisible braces especially adults who in most cases feel ashamed of wearing braces. Lingual braces come in varying forms and specifications thus implying that they also vary in the prices at which they are offered. Examples of different types of braces include, Invisalign, the regular ceramic braces and lastly the lingual braces. It is worth noting that fixing of the wrong braces tends to worsen the case and in many cases it has called for teeth removal. The above type of braces varies in their composition and the materials that make them. Lingual braces are the favorite among many users over all other types of braces for various reasons. They are greatly preferred for aesthetic reasons as they are invisible, orthodontists in many cases prefer putting the lingual braces on the upper teeth and the ceramic braces on the lower teeth. In addition to that, the dentists also tries to incorporate the SureSmile technology hence giving better services, some of the advantages of using the SureSmile technology  includes, faster and more efficient treatment process as well as one is guaranteed of a quality outcome. However, this service have it shortcomings that accompanies it, the cost of fixing the lingual braces tends to be higher than the cost of fixing the other types of braces.
