If you’re contemplating braces either for yourself or a child then you’ll likely be asking yourself if you should be opting for Invisalign Leicester or traditional fixed wired braces. Both of these options have amazing results and no one system beats the other as far as the team at Smile Care Dental Clinic is concerned, but there are some stand out features from both that could help you make a better, more informed decision.

Benefits of fixed braces

One of the main benefits of fixed braces is that they are capable of correcting really complex orthodontic issues. They can move teeth that have really big over and underbites, complicated crowding or large gaps and have really reliable results.

Fixed braces can work really quickly and can move complicated orthodontic issues in short amounts of time with the average person wearing them for 12 to 18 months.

They’re also very affordable with them being available through the NHS for children who medically require braces.

Benefits of Invisalign Leicester

One of the major benefits of Invisalign is that they’re super adaptable to your current lifestyle. You’ll have to make little to no changes to how you live your life in the time that you’re wearing them, other than that when you do wear them you can only consume water.

Invisalign Leicester aligners are excellent and easy to clean and maintain, as they are totally removable which is excellent for the upkeep of the trays, but also for the upkeep of your teeth as you’ll be able to clean your teeth and floss just as before.

Obviously with the clue being in the name, you’re much less likely to be aware of someone who is wearing Invisalign as opposed to someone who’s wearing traditional fixed braces. The aligners are made to be as subtle as possible and for this reason can be an excellent option for those who are wanting to keep their orthodontic treatment as private and unobtrusive as possible.

Comfort is key with Invisalign because they’re so smooth against your teeth they’re great for those patients who worry about sensitive skin. If you’re someone who gets sore easily or gets really fed up with a little discomfort then Invisalign could be a great option for you. The smooth texture helps avoid sores and irritation so you can get on with your days niggle free.

How to decide

The best way to decide which option to go for is to come and see the team here at Smile Care Dental Clinic, we’ll be able to assist you in understanding which option is truly the best one for you without being biased towards a particular system. For lots of people they naturally just want to edge towards Invisalign and for good reason, it’s an excellent system. However, you shouldn’t just dismiss traditional braces because you think they’re bulky or ugly if actually they could be the best way forward for you to get the results you want.
