Invisalign vs Metal Braces

Invisalign vs Metal Braces

One of the most common questions we hear is Invisalign VS Braces?

Fortunately, top Brooklyn Orthodontics specialists Dr. Irving Eckstein and Dr. Azariy Yusupov can provide you with top rated orthodontic care in either Brooklyn or Queens.

At their Queens and Brooklyn orthodontic offices, New York orthodontists Dr. Azariy Yusupov and Dr. Irving Eckstein use a variety of orthodontic techniques – including Invisalign aligners, self-ligating braces, traditional braces, speed braces, headgear, and retainers – to treat orthodontic problems like misaligned teeth, malocclusions, overbites, underbites, overcrowding, and malformed jaws. If you live in Queens or Brooklyn and need orthodontic treatment, you should visit New York orthodontists Dr. Eckstein and Dr. Yusupov.

When comparing the Invisalign aligners to the self-ligating braces it is important to remember that both systems have advantaged and disadvantages when treating misaligned teeth, malocclusions, crooked teeth, overbites, underbites and other orthodontic problems. Both treatment options share a few benefits over traditional braces.

For example, both Invisalign aligners and self-ligating braces, also called speed braces, are far more comfortable than traditional braces and do not require tightening.

In addition, Invisalign (Clear Braces) are also removable, allowing for proper oral hygiene and allowing the patient to eat whatever they want during treatment. Invisalign aligners are clear, meaning that they do not attract unwanted attention during treatment. On the other hand, Self-ligating speed braces have two main functional advantages.

First, self-ligating braces are capable of treating more severe orthodontic problems than either Invisalign aligners or traditional braces. Second, speed braces treat orthodontic problems far more quickly than Invisalign aligners or traditional braces do.
