Most people are familiar with traditional braces. They are metal or clear ceramic brackets cemented to the front of your teeth and connected with wires that are regularly adjusted. On average patients will need to wear braces for about two years. So why on earth would anyone opt for braces over Invisalign? If you don’t want to have to keep up with removing and cleaning the aligners after every meal and non-water beverage braces may be a better option. If you have a complicated dental situation or need to have teeth rotated, braces may be your only option.
