Traditional orthodontics vs. Invisalign treatment in Brentwood, CA dental practice

Posted By

Misalignment of the natural teeth can cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance when they laugh, smile, or speak with others. Patients who are interested in improving the alignment of their teeth may want to know about the options available. Thanks to advances in treatment options, patients in the Brentwood, CA area may be able to choose the treatment they want, instead of having no other options than traditional orthodontics. Drs. Jamil Alkhoury and Diana Belli of Brentwood Family Dental offer both conventional treatment and Invisalign, and patients wanting to learn about the differences are welcome to book a consultation visit.

Traditional orthodontics vs. Invisalign treatment

Treatment can be done in two different manners with the team at Brentwood Family Dental. Our practice offers both conventional braces, using metal brackets and wires, to achieve results, and Invisalign aligner tray therapy. Both are effective methods of realigning the smile, though some patients may be better suited for one vs. another.

Conventional braces

When most patients think of braces, they think of metal on the smile. This is the traditional way of repositioning the teeth. Drs. Jamil Alkhoury and Diana Belli find that this treatment option can help patients with mild to severe misalignment of the teeth. Brackets are glued to each individual tooth, and wires are used to connect them together and gradually move the teeth into their proper position within the dental arch. Patients will find that they are always a candidate for conventional braces because this method can be used to treat a variety of issues including bite alignment. Metal braces are used to treat:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

They can also be used for improving issues such as overcrowding.

Invisalign treatment

Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that patients wear over their dental arch to reposition teeth. This method is far more discreet and allows patients to achieve the same results without covering their smile with metal. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment are the best candidates for this method and can work with their dental team to find out if it is the right solution for their specific needs. Invisalign is also comparable in cost with conventional braces.
