Invisalign vs. Clear Braces: How are they different?

In this blog, we’ll look at Invisalign vs. clear braces. How are they different? 

Sometimes, people use “clear braces” and Invisalign interchangeably. While they are both orthodontic treatments to perfect your smile, they are very different. Read on.

What are Clear Braces?

Today, modern ceramic braces feature clear brackets. Traditionally, these brackets are silver metallic color, but the clear tooth-colored version is much less noticeable. Thus, all you see is the thin metal archwire that crosses along the middle of the teeth.

While these braces are much more discreet than in the past, they remain attached to your teeth. Thus, you have to take special care to avoid foods that could stain the clear brackets. And, you must carefully floss around the braces after eating.

Thus, clear braces aren’t as convenient as Invisalign, which can come out when you eat. Although they are discreet, they aren’t quite as invisible as clear aligners either.

However, clear braces may be a better option for some people. Generally, braces may be preferable in cases that require advanced correction. Before you begin treatment, we’ll help you determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. In some instances, we may refer patients to a braces provider.

For an example of what clear braces look like, see the picture below:

Invisalign Can Treat a Wide Variety of Smiles

Over the years, Invisalign has continuously improved. Now, it can treat people of all ages efficiently, affordably, and with more comfort than ever.

For most, an overbite is the most common malocclusion, otherwise known as crooked teeth. Invisalign can treat pronounced overbites, but also treats many other malocclusions:

Treatable cases include:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gap Teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Baby and Permanent Teeth
  • General Teeth Straightening

As you can see, there are many cases where Invisalign can help. In all cases, you can expect a perfect smile that will last a lifetime with proper care and regular dental checkups.

Dr. Philip Messer, DDS, a former Invisalign patient, has seen firsthand how effective Invisalign is. Now, he specializes in helping others experience the benefits for themselves.

A Beautiful Smile in an Average 12 Months

For minor corrections, you could complete treatment in as little as six months. However, most people will wear a series of custom aligners for around a year. In more complex cases, it can be considerably longer. However, the result is truly priceless, with more smiles, better health, and often greater self-confidence.

Avoid Oral Health Problems

Not only will you look better, but you could enjoy many potential health benefits. For those with serious malocclusions, you can be prone to tooth decay, gum diseases, or even tooth loss and resulting bone loss. In those cases, you can look prematurely aged and probably avoid smiling. 

By seeking treatment, you could avoid oral health issues. Thus, the benefits are not merely cosmetic. Plus, with affordable plans from Clearsmile, treatment is affordable and more convenient. 

Dr. Philip Messer, DDS, wants you to get the best results with the most convenience. Therefore, you can be showing off your new smile faster and with fewer office visits. However, you’ll never compromise on getting the results you’ve always wanted.

The Proof is in the Smiles

Please check out our Invisalign Patient Gallery to get an idea of the results you can expect at Clearsmile. As you’ll see, there can be a radical transformation. After treatment, you’ll see that very noticeable gaps and imperfections are gone.

The Benefits of Invisalign

In this post, we’ll look at the benefits of Invisalign. As Union County’s premier Invisalign Center, we can help you with any questions about Invisalign. We specialize only in Invisalign, making us unique in New Jersey. 

Also, we’re Diamond Plus Invisalign providers, which means we have treated numerous patients with Invisalign. Thus, you’re sure to get the best custom treatment plan and results.

Dr. Philip Messer, DDS, was a former Invisalign patient himself. Now, he loves empowering others with the power of Invisalign technology. 

The Best Benefits: Looking and Feeling Better

Invisalign is much more than a cosmetic treatment. Amazingly, you can avoid health issues and feel more confident than ever before. Plus, you’ll smile more than ever as you show off the smile you always wanted. Surely, this is the best benefit of Invisalign.

More Benefits of Invisalign

Let’s take a quick look at some of the many other benefits of Invisalign. Notably, we treat people of all ages with Invisalign, and it’s never too late to get started. 

The Ultimate Orthodontic Camouflage

Invisalign has a discreet nearly invisible appearance we call “the ultimate orthodontic camouflage.”

In fact, most people won’t know you’re working on your smile. Plus, you can take out the aligners temporarily for school photos, eating, or brushing. So, teenagers and many adult professionals enjoy this top benefit. 

Freedom to Eat What You Want

Unlike braces, you’re free to eat whatever you want while correcting your smile with Invisalign. Of course, it’s a good idea to avoid too much sugar, but you don’t have to worry about sticky foods that stick to braces.

Unlike braces, there’s no wire involved. So, there are generally fewer abrasions to delicate gums and your mouth. Aligners are made of a one-of-a-kind BPA-free thermoplastic material called SmartTrack. It’s flexible for a perfect custom fit that’s relatively comfortable to wear.

See the Results Before You Begin

Notably, your aligner is as unique as your smile. Before they are created, a remarkable 3-D technology maps your teeth in great detail. Then, you can get a preview of how your smile will appear when you have completed treatment. When you come in for your complimentary exam, we’ll show you the new you.

Using the iTero scanner, we can get an incredibly accurate scan of your smile. However, you don’t have to put messy putty in your mouth. That’s definitely a plus!

See Dr. Messer discuss the iTero scanner in the video from Instagram below:

Faster Results with Fewer Office Visits

Compared to braces, Invisalign can be five months faster on average. In a few cases, treatment can be as short as six months. In most cases, you can expect to wear the aligners for 6-12 months. 

Another perk: Invisalign requires fewer office visits since there’s no wire and brackets to adjust. Even better, we dispense several sets of aligners at once, allowing you to change to a new one at home every two weeks.

Following treatment, you’ll wear a retainer to ensure you keep that perfect smile for life. A retainer is required after Invisalign or braces. However, braces tend to take 18-24 months and may be preferred in some more serious cases.

Get started with your free assessment here to find out if you may be a candidate for Invisalign.

Costs About the Same as Braces

On average, Invisalign tends to cost about the same as braces. Plus, with affordable financing, treatment is affordable. Clearsmile can offer affordable payment plans with $0 down payments and 0% interest financing. For as little as $78/month, you can get the smile you deserve.

Can Invisalign Fix My Gap Teeth

Who likes a hole in their teeth? .. No one.

No one likes to smile and see little brown boxes between their pearly whites. Gap teeth is one of the most unappealing looks you could have. Fixing gaps in teeth is a delicate procedure. There are a lot of options to close those gaps depending on their sizes and location in your mouth. However, braces are considered the gold standard in fixing gapped teeth. Braces can literally “push your teeth together” and give you the most awesome smile you can have.

But there is a catch .. Braces are downright ugly. That of course is speaking of traditional metallic braces, which is why most people nowadays are looking for alternatives. The most popular of these is, of course, Invisalign. The search term “can Invisalign fix my gap teeth” is surprisingly popular.

What are gap teeth?

Gap teeth is when your teeth are not in tight contact with each other. Spaces between the teeth are mostly genetic, but some other reasons may be involved such as abnormal muscle locations and in some cases poor management by your dentist.

These gaps could occur anywhere in your mouth, but the term “gap teeth” commonly refers to the space between the two front teeth.

What is Invisalign?

If you still don’t know what Invisalign is, you really need to. Invisalign is one of the most amazing technologies in the dental field these days. This technology swapped out the traditional metallic braces, wires and colorful elastics with a transparent, plastic mold (known as an aligner) that fits the outer surface of your teeth, and acts by pressurizing them to move to the desired location.

As you can probably imagine, the looks are much better. In addition, they shorten the treatment time, are much more accurate, and highly improve oral hygiene as well.

Can Invisalign fix my gap teeth?

Absolutely. Invisalign has evolved a lot of the past few years, but initially it was created solely to fix the problem of spacing between teeth. The aligners apply pressure to move the teeth closer together much easier than they would fix crooked teeth or try to gain pace when your teeth are crowded.

Fixing gap teeth is the easy part. Keeping them together, however, is a different story. Invisalign can fix gap teeth in virtually no time, but your orthodontist would need to take extra care to keep the spaces closed. Permanent retainers are often needed, and in most cases, a small surgery where the small flap that you can find in the midline of your lips when you pull them out (known as frenum) is removed. The frenum is the primary cause of gap teeth. If your orthodontist doesn’t find a permanent solution for it, it is very likely that the gap would recur.

Spacing between teeth is a very common problem. It usually manifests between the two front teeth. It is easier to fix than most other problems related to your teeth alignment, but would need very special care to make sure the gaps won’t surface again

Can Invisalign Fix My Overbite

There is no denying the importance of a beautiful smile. People with perfect smiles almost have an aura around them. They seem more confident, happy and more willing to take on life.

For this reason and so much more, everybody nowadays are seeking to perfect their smiles. The demand for cosmetic dentistry has sky rocketed in the past few years. Many people don’t realize that orthodontics (AKA braces) is a cosmetic procedure as well, one that is designed to fix all problems concerning how your teeth are placed in your mouth.

However, braces have an apparent problem, that is their appearance. Traditional metallic braces are incredible unsightly, and therefore correctly dubbed “metal mouth”. For kids, it is not that big of a deal, and some of them even consider it to be cool to have braces on. For adults, however, the situation is different. No adult would accept a “metal mouth” appearance, especially considering they would be wearing it for quite some time. From that concept emerged the incredible technology of Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign was specifically invented to address the problem of traditional braces’ appearance. It ended up treating almost every other problem concerning metallic braces along the way. The treatment time is shorter, errors are next to none, require fewer visits to your orthodontist and finally promote higher oral hygiene.

Invisalign is composed of a set of 3D printed, computer-made aligners. These are plastic transparent molds that apply pressure to the surface of the teeth to move them in a very controlled way.

What is an overbite?

An overbite is one of the most common problems that face an orthodontist. The upper front teeth normally lie in front of the lower teeth, covering about 2/3 of their length. An overbite means the upper teeth cover more than the normal two thirds of the lower teeth, hence the “over” part.

It varies in severity and causes, but most are mild with the reason being the incorrect position of either the upper or lower teeth, or both.

Can Invisalign fix my overbite?

In a word .. Absolutely.

With very few exceptions, Invisign can fix almost any problem related to teeth alignment. It can very much apply pressure to the over-extended teeth, causing them to slide right back in the jaw bones, fixing the overbite.

That is, if the origin of the problem is the teeth themselves. However, if the problem lies not in the teeth but the jaw bones, then unfortunately neither Invisalign nor traditional braces can fix that. In these cases, either a functional appliance is used to control growth (that is if you are still young) or a corrective jaw surgery in case you are on the older side.

Invisalign could be the simple solution to your problem. It virtually has no downsides or side effects, and will very much give you the awesome smile you want. If you like to learn more, or if you’re still wondering “can Invisalign fix my overbite?”, contact Dr. Messer and the team at ClearSmile NJ on (908) 233-1760 or on our email: info@clearsmilenj.com, or you can visit us in 506 North Ave, Garwood, NJ

Virtual Invisalign Consultations in NJ

Virtual appointments allow patients and staff to take extra precautions about their health. Also, they make it possible for medical professionals to both help patients and follow guidelines for self-quarantine and social distancing. If you are looking into virtual Invisalign consultations in NJ, Dr. Messer with Clearsmile can help.

How Are Virtual Invisalign Consultations in NJ Possible?

Virtual Invisalign Consultations in NJLife feels complicated right now, but we can quickly answer your questions about Invisalign. For the orthodontist to give you the best attention, it is essential to take some photos first. These should be up-close photos of your teeth, but they must also be in focus.

You will need to use a digital camera or a cellphone to take pictures. Having a friend to help out makes the process easier, too. You will want to pull your lips and cheeks away from your teeth for the pictures. You can do this by using your fingers or by placing a large spoon at each side of your mouth and pulling outward.

Your first picture is a front photo with the teeth closed. You will then want a view of both the left and right profile, also with the teeth closed. The next two photos are of the top and bottom teeth. For these two pictures, you will want to open wide, continue to keep the cheeks away from the teeth, and lean back. Have a helper take a picture of both the top and the bottom. Be sure to keep the tongue out of the way.

What Do I Do with These Pictures?
