Tips for Choosing Invisalign in Bayonne

Posted by Admin on Monday, October 8th, 2018 in Invisalign

Misaligned teeth can be difficult to clean and lead to the early stages of gum disease. Besides the health benefits, seeing an orthodontist at Beautiful Smiles of Bayonne can lead to a more pleasing smile and appearance which may be very important to your child.


Differences Between Invisalign and Braces

There are several options when it comes to correcting and straightening your child’s teeth. The two main options are braces and Invisalign. Braces are metal brackets and wires that attach across the teeth and slowly correct the teeth over time. The difficulty with traditional braces is that they lead to certain food restrictions and can also cause your child to feel self-conscious. Invisalign are clear braces that are used to slowly shape the structure of your child’s smile. They can be taken out at meal time and are relatively unnoticeable to others.


Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign costs about the same as traditional braces and is just as effective at straightening your child’s teeth. There is no risk of injury due to breaking wires that traditional braces have. Your child can eat any food they like, provided they floss and brush after each meal. An added benefit of Invisalign is that they reduce the possibility of teasing for your child since they usually take less time to straighten and are clear in appearance.
