Find Out What You Need to Know about Invisible Braces and Clear Aligners

Large metal orthodontic braces are a thing of the past. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for braces for you or your teen, the selection is surprising. Hard, heavy metal isn’t the only option for braces nowadays. Today, invisible braces or hidden braces, aren’t only all the rage, but they’re readily available and affordable as well! There are also invisible aligners, which according to Colgate, are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. Two of the leading contenders on the market today are Invisalign and Incognito

Invisible Braces or Clear Aligners?

With Incognito or Invisalign, the world won’t know you’re in the middle of orthodontic treatment. Our Incognito braces are hidden, attaching to the inside surface of the teeth. Invisalign comes in the form of clear trays (aligners) that gently reposition your teeth over time. Choosing one over the other doesn’t have to be a difficult choice if you know what you want and what to expect. Read below and discover what you can expect from both types of braces and clear aligners:

  • invisible bracesIncognito is the only 100% customized, invisible, fixed orthodontic appliance system on the market today. It’s attached to the inside surface of teeth. Since they’re completely hidden, no one will ever know you are wearing braces. There is minimal discomfort and little to no speech interference. Because Incognito is always 100% custom designed to make every treatment experience predictable and convenient, you can be assured that you’ll get the best results possible. Since the customized wires do not require regular adjustments, that means fewer appointments and less discomfort throughout treatment. The best part is that results are seen quickly!
  • Invisalign consists of a series of customized, BPA-free plastic, clear aligners that are removable and routinely replaced every two weeks to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. They must be worn all day, with the exception of only two to four hours, for superior results. A huge advantage is that Invisalign can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, or playing sports. They make life easier, more comfortable, and deliver astounding results! They’re an ideal option for invisible braces.
