Are you debating between getting braces or invisible braces in Lighthouse Point? The good news is that you are looking to fix your smile and that’s the hard part, the easy part is figuring out which one is the best to get. The experts at Sedation Dental Spa are here to help you figure out which braces you should get with some pros and cons of both! 

Pros and cons of traditional braces 

If you are thinking about getting traditional braces it’s only fair if you know what you’re getting into. You already know that a pro of getting traditional braces is making your teeth straighter but if you are looking for the most cost-effective way to straighten your teeth this may be the way to go for you. Another pro of traditional braces is that you can change around the colored bands but if you don’t want to go that route because you’re an adult we get it and that’s people consider Invisalign.  

A con of traditional braces is that everyone will know that you are fixing your smile and this may not be ideal for you. Another con is that it’s a painful process, you will have to get your braces tightened and for a couple days you may be in pain and have to eat soup or other soft foods. The last con of braces is that you can’t take it off when you’re eating, you may get food stuck in your braces and unless your friends point out the food you will walk around all day with food stuck in your braces! 

Pros and cons of invisible braces 

There are many pros when it comes to getting invisible braces or Invisalign. As you already know with Invisalign you can straighten your smile and a pro of Invisalign is that you don’t have to worry about the world knowing that you are in the process of fixing your smile! Invisalign is practically unnoticeable and that’s why it’s referred to as invisible braces! Another pro is that you can take off your Invisalign any time and you won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces since you can remove the tray while you eat. The process is nearly painless and you don’t have to come in as often as you would have to come with traditional braces. The process consists of changing out your tray every couple of weeks and you will be able to see the results in no time!  

A con could be that it’s slightly more expensive than traditional braces but it pays to not let the world know that you are working on your smile. Another con can be that the process can vary from patient to patient and could last as long as 18 months, but in reality, to fix your teeth both routes will take time and traditional braces may take longer!
