Differences between Invisalign & Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces in India are slightly more advanced compared to traditional metal braces. In recent times, ceramic braces are preferred over metal braces due to their advantages such as more aesthetic, no irritation or damage to the adjacent oral tissues, and durability. Ceramic braces are a decent option and have their merits and demerits when compared with aligners. The major part is aesthetics and comfort.

Points to remember before choosing Ceramic braces:

➢ The color of the arches can be customized according to the individual tooth color. Thus, only archwires are visible. And are cost-effective when compared to Invisalign.

➢ Even after considering how aesthetically pleasing ceramic braces are, they are still fixed and cannot be removed whenever needed. Ceramic braces are larger than traditional braces but are durable comparatively. They are very less likely to cause irritation or damage to the surrounding tissues when compared to traditional metal braces.

➢ They are not strong enough compared to traditional braces. And are generally not advised for patients with severe malocclusion. But it is advised to visit the best orthodontist in India to determine whether ceramic braces are suited to your condition.

➢ Treatment with ceramic braces may take longer than aligners. Multiple dental visits are required and the time taken at each dental visit can take longer than any other treatment options.

➢ They are resistant to external stains, as the arches are nonporous. But other parts of the braces are porous which can be stained externally and need to be changed accordingly within the treatment process and can be charged accordingly.

Invisalign in India is a modern technology that uses several sets of clear plastic trays in each jaw which helps in the repositioning of the teeth.

Points to remember before choosing Invisalign aligners:

➢ Appearance is the biggest flex for Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are clear and smooth and thus are aesthetic compared to ceramic braces.

➢ Aligners are comfortable when compared to braces. Invisalign is removable, while braces are fixed orthodontic appliances. So, people can remove the braces whenever they want such as eating or sleeping, and put them back after completion of the task during the treatment.

➢ Even in ceramic braces, arches are bound with the help of metallic wires and filaments which can be painful as it sometimes can cause cuts and bruises. This is completely absent in the case of aligners. Invisalign offers a painless orthodontic treatment.

➢ The time of the entire treatment process is less in aligners when compared to braces which take almost 2 years. And even the time taken during each dental visit is less in the case of aligners.

➢ Maintenance of Invisalign is easy. As they can be removed, maintaining oral hygiene through brushing and flossing of the teeth is possible. Also, just rinsing your aligners before placing them in your oral cavity is enough so everyone can maintain them easily.

➢ As Invisalign is a modern technology, it is not available in all clinics. So, we advise you to visit the best dental clinic in India to get customized treatment.
