Invisalign versus Braces: Which is Better?

Invisalign Questions
Dr. Michael Stosich
Dear Dr. S.,
I’m a 45 year old who has been embarrassed by my smile for many years. My dentist suggested Invisalign because I don’t want to draw even more attention to my smile with metal braces. Can my dentist straighten my teeth with Invisalign as well as an orthodontist could with braces?
Sincerely,
Sarah T.
Dr. Michael Stosich
Dear Sarah,
Thanks for your question – it’s one I get asked a lot, and it’s important that you do your research before undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign took the orthodontic world by storm when it was first introduced, and because of that, more providers are clamoring to use it, thinking it keeps them ahead of the curve.

The Limitations of Invisalign

The Invisalign system is alluring to many patients. The subtlety and flexibility of the system makes it especially attractive to adult orthodontic patients. Some adults fear that braces will embarrass them. They believe these clear aligners are the best solution to their imperfect smiles. And sometimes they are. Other times, though, it’s better to go with traditional braces. Invisalign doesn’t solve every orthodontic issue, and in longterm studies, fixed braces prove to keep teeth straighter for longer.

SKOKIE, Ill.– Invisalign is good. Invisalign with Dr. Michael Stosich at iDentity Orthodontics is even better.

That’s because Dr. Stosich was specially trained in Invisalign during his orthodontic residency at Temple University, which is recognized as the foremost digital orthodontic institution in the world. His time collaborating with pioneers in the industry granted him a superior understanding of Invisalign treatment and how to maximize its benefits for patients.

KENILWORTH AND Skokie, ILLINOIS – Protruding teeth can create many problems for you or your child. Correcting them as soon as possible can alleviate difficulties down the road.

Teeth that stick out are more prone to injury and trauma, especially during contact sports. Also, the teeth may wear unevenly, due to their positioning.
