When most people think about braces, they think of the traditionally clunky, metal braces that are often associated with adolescence. They are often unsightly and can cause patients (especially our older patients) to be embarrassed about their smiles. At Orthodontists Associates of Western New York, our orthodontists specialize in offering our patients invisible braces in Niagara Falls, NY. Also known as clear braces, invisible braces allow our patients to improve their smiles more discretely than with traditional metal braces. Invisible braces offer patients an opportunity to straighten their smile with tooth-colored wires and brackets that blend in with the natural color of their teeth, making them much less noticeable.
We believe patients shouldn’t have to compromise their appearance or lifestyle while straightening their teeth. Whether you are an older patient looking to improve your smile, or a young patient looking to ensure proper dental facial growth, at Orthodontists Associates of Western New York, we provide invisible braces for all ages throughout Western New York.
What issues can Invisible Braces help correct?
Invisible braces can help correct a variety of dental issues including crooked teeth, unsightly gaps, misaligned bites, crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, and more.
Invisible braces are just as effective as traditional metal braces but are much more difficult to notice, especially from a distance. Many patients find this ideal, especially for busy professionals, teens, and those who don’t want to negatively impact their appearance or self-esteem throughout their orthodontic treatment.
What are Invisible Aligners?
Invisible braces and invisible aligners are not the same things although they serve the same purpose. They both straighten your teeth in a way that is less obvious than wearing traditional braces or a traditional aligner. A series of invisible aligners are designed for you based on the goals set by you and your orthodontist to straighten your smile.
These invisible aligners work very similarly to traditional braces with several key benefits. Invisible aligners by Invisalign are more convenient to wear than traditional braces due to the fact that they can be removed as needed (for short durations of time). This allows patients to take out their aligners when taking photos, brushing their teeth, eating a meal, or playing sports.
Another thing people hate about having traditional or even clear braces is that they have to give up certain foods during treatment. With Invisalign, there are no food restrictions. One of the few times that you remove your aligners is when you are eating. Then, you clean your teeth and put your aligners back in. You can continue to eat crunchy foods, drink coffee, and eat foods with tomato-based sauces. The only restriction generally given with Invisalign is to avoid chewing gum. This is because chewing gum sticks to your aligners. To learn more about whether Invisalign is right for you, schedule a free consultation for invisible braces in Niagara Falls today.
Do Invisible Braces Cost More?
When looking at the cost of metal braces you are going to spend anywhere between $3,000 to $7,000. The cost of invisible braces in Niagara Falls is a little bit more, between $4,000 and $8,000. The reason clear braces are more expensive than metal is due to the difference in materials that are used.
