For those looking for an alternative to metal and ceramic braces, iBraces present a great option, with many unique benefits. These braces are clear and placed behind your teeth, making them virtually invisible to the outside world. iBraces are also fully customizable to your teeth and are an effective option for correcting misaligned teeth. Given these many advantages, iBraces have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years.
Who can get iBraces?
Almost anyone over the age of 13 can get iBraces, but it is often adults who opt for it, given the treatment’s discreetness and effectiveness. iBraces are especially popular among adult professionals, who want straight teeth but also a treatment option that doesn’t show to their co-workers and involves less hassle.
How are iBraces different from Invisalign?
Another common question patients ask us is how iBraces differ from Invisalign. In certain cases, iBraces are better than Invisalign at achieving optimal results since they are actually attached to the teeth and can move teeth effectively in a particular direction, explains Doug Depew, an Atlanta Orthodontist.
Depew also discusses the advantages of being able to customize treatment to the individual patient, saying that, similar to Invisalign, part of the reason iBraces are so effective is that the orthodontist works with the patient in creating an individualized plan of treatment.
