Fixed vs. Removable Appliances
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until treatment is complete.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires. The Zeifman Orthodontics clear aligner system is made up of a series of fully customized, clear trays that are nearly invisible and completely removable.
The soft plastic also means no friction or abrasions inside your mouth, so they’re more comfortable to wear. The aligners are changed out weekly, and when worn the recommended 20-22 hours per day, will gradually move your teeth into the best position for your smile.
As mentioned, clear aligners work best with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, so it may not be the best choice for everyone. At your free consultation, we can find out if clear aligners are right for you.Clear Aligners
