Here’s Why Invisalign may be Better


invisalign houston tx | Royal DentalThe team at Royal Dental loves helping patients fall back in love with their smile. Dentistry has advanced so greatly that we now have several ways to make the necessary improvements. We can help you brighten up your smile, restore full integrity to damaged teeth, and even correct misalignment using the Invisalign system. Our experience with Invisalign has frequently brought us face to face with a common question: Is Invisalign better than braces?

Is Invisalign better than braces? Some would say yes, but that would be a knee-jerk reaction. Of course, this system seems better than braces! It doesn’t require you to sit beneath glued-on brackets and wires! It doesn’t get between you and your favorite food, or between you and your confidence. There are many advantages to the Invisalign protocol. That is undeniable. But what is really behind that question about “which is better” is the aspect of efficacy. Can Invisalign get the job done? That is the real question!

A Look-Back

Initially, the Powers that Be approved Invisalign for the correction of minor alignment issues. A turned tooth, or a slight overlap. The use was limited, to say the least. Because of this, the perception was set that Invisalign is just cosmetic braces. The thing is, the developers of this system did not hang up their hats at this point; they kept working. They measured and tracked the positive sides to their system, and when they missed the mark in achieving the intended goal. What this did was advance the overall treatment protocol.

Now, Invisalign is a lot more than a cosmetic braces system. It is much more than a convenient treatment, too; it’s effective! Patients with an overbite, a crossbite, an underbite, with crowded teeth or gaps between teeth, with turning and other concerns, can all find the resolution they seek with Invisalign. Furthermore, because there are no brackets, research has discovered that patients tend to have better oral health throughout their course of treatment. Now that’s a bonus!

As great as we think Invisalign is, we cannot say that it is the best approach for every patient. We’d be happy to consult with you to determine your needs. Call (713) 330-7700.
