Invisalign system of braces is designed to be invisible. This system uses aligner trays that are smooth, comfortable and made of BPA-free clear plastic. Ceramic braces are also called clear braces. These braces have brackets made of ceramic material which can be made to match the color of your teeth camouflaging the treatment. Though both are quite undetectable while worn, there are a few stark differences between the two, making Invisalign the best option.
- Invisalign is virtually transparent. Patients love this discretion. Clear braces on the other hand are noticeable.
- It is removable – Brushing and other oral hygiene routines are easy to follow when you have Invisalign Ceramic braces on the other hand make brushing and flossing difficult. Even eating is difficult with clear braces on.
- They are stronger. – These use plastic trays for aligning the teeth. So, with little or no maintenance these trays last longer. Clear braces are made of ceramic, which is a brittle material and is prone to chipping or breaking.
- You can get used to Invisalign in no time. Ceramic brackets can feel rough and irritate the soft tissue of the mouth. On the contrary, Invisalign’s smooth surface can blend in with your daily routine in no time without hurting.
