Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Posted .

Are you an adult who’s considering braces? Then you might be wondering what type is right for you. Shirck Orthodontics offers a wide range of services to patients from Westerville and beyond.

Two of those services include Invisalign and traditional braces. Many adults want to avoid traditional braces if they can, and that’s understandable. Not every patient is a candidate for a service like Invisalign, though. As great as Invisalign is, it was designed to address small cosmetic issues. For instance, many Invisalign patients wore braces in the past and now need a little help readjusting teeth that have moved out of alignment. Invisalign is perfect for this.

However, patients with more advanced needs will find that traditional braces are still their best option. Thankfully, there are braces that use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires so that care is more discreet than it might be.  By providing clear braces to Westerville patients, Dr. Shirck is able to offer comprehensive care that meets a wide variety of needs, with an emphasis on personalized care.

Do you have questions about which braces system is right for you? Dr. Shirck would be happy to talk to you during a consultation visit. When you come for a visit, he can explain the differences between Invisalign and traditional braces and help you understand all your options.
