When it comes to straightening your teeth without metal brackets and wires, you have more options than ever before. But with so many options out there, it’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed by your choices.
Below, we talk a little more about three popular types of invisible braces in Birmingham, AL:
Invisalign is what most people tend to think of when they picture clear braces. These aligners are probably the most well-known type of invisible braces, and they were the first of their kind to make their way onto the dental market in the late 1990s.
Invisalign aligners are clear, flexible, and removable, and they remain popular with teenage and adult patients because of their subtle appearance. Because of their thick, sturdy plastic and the brand name recognition, Invisalign tends to be the most expensive type of clear braces available.
ClearCorrect invisible braces are similar to Invisalign in many ways. You can still remove these clear aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth, and your overall straightening results will probably be about the same.
ClearCorrect typically uses a thinner plastic than its Invisalign counterpart, making it less expensive at most dental practices.
If you work in an office setting or are a student who spends most of your time at a desk, you probably won’t notice a big difference between Invisalign and ClearCorrect. If you’re very active or have extremely sensitive teeth and gums, however, you may prefer the fit and make of Invisalign.
Dentists rely on the Inman Aligner to straighten patients’ crooked front teeth. If you’re looking for a quick way to improve your most visible teeth and don’t want to focus on full-mouth straightening, Dr. Cook may recommend this treatment option.
Because patients typically only wear their Inman Aligner for a few months and it only addresses the positioning of a few teeth, this is the last expensive orthodontia of the three we’ve listed.
