Braces or Invisalign?

Did you have braces when you were growing up?  I didn't, but I always thought it would be cool to have them.  Yeah, I'm probably weird.  Most of the kids I knew who had braces wished they didn't have them.  I'm sure there was more to it than that they just didn't like the way they looked, but I remember kids with braces not wanting to smile and show the braces.

Nowadays teens (and adults) can get straighter teeth and a perfect smile with clear braces from invisalign montreal or another experienced Invisalign Preferred Provider.  Invisalign's clear aligners are virtually invisible so most people won't even notice them, and they're meant to be removed when you eat or brush your teeth, meaning you can eat whatever you want, no restrictions.  And they're more comfortable than traditional metal braces, which can irritate cheeks and gums.  See, I didn't really know what I would have been getting into when I thought it would be cool to have braces.

The cost and length of treatment is usually comparable to the cost of traditional braces, but the comfort and convenience of invisalign makes it worth asking your local or montreal dentist if invisalign is right for you.
