Invisalign and ClearCorrect

Until recently, the only option for straightening teeth was metal orthodontics. Today, however, you have more choices than ever for finding the treatment that works best for you. Both metal and clear braces have their benefits, but the right choice will be the one that fits your orthodontic needs as well as your budget.

Clear braces like Invisalign and ClearCorrect have the advantage of being comfortable, discreet, and easy to wear. Metal orthodontics don’t offer these advantages, but they tend to be less expensive than clear aligners.

If you have complicated alignment or bite issues, you may be a better candidate for traditional braces than Invisalign because a different type of approach is needed to straighten your smile.

Something else to consider is that Invisalign clear aligners are removable for eating and oral hygiene. This is an advantage, but the fact that they’re removable means you might not wear them as prescribed. If you think you’re going to have trouble with compliance, braces that are attached to your teeth might be a better choice.

Dr. Yefim Khanimov is a certified Invisalign and ClearCorrect provider and also has experience and expertise with traditional metal orthodontics. If you are considering orthodontics in Rego Park, please call Hollywood Smile Dental to arrange a consultation at your convenience.
