If you're living with crooked teeth and feel self-conscious about your smile, you might be thinking about straightening them. If you are, you'll be glad to know that adults have several options when it comes to orthodontic treatment. In addition, you no longer have to settle for wearing metal brackets and wires on your teeth since now there are invisible braces with Invisalign.

Here are some of the differences between braces and Invisalign in Jonesboro. 

#1: There's Less Discomfort

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth instead of braces. Aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, unlike brackets and wires that tend to poke or scrape your soft tissues. The aligners also don't interfere when you talk or interact with other people throughout the day.

#2: Aligners Are Removable

When you have brackets and wires, brushing around them and flossing between them becomes tricky. In addition, for some people, oral hygiene suffers while wearing braces, which can result in their teeth having cavities when their braces come off.

Since aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally throughout your treatment and keep oral health a top priority.

#3: There Are No Diet Restrictions

When you wear braces, you have to be careful about eating certain foods that could damage your brackets or pull them off. This is not the case with invisible braces in Jonesboro since your aligners are removable. So you'll be able to enjoy all the foods you love during your treatment!

#4: No One Will Ever Notice Your Invisible Braces

As we all know, metal braces are obvious when you smile, talk, or laugh. Invisalign aligners are clear and hardly noticeable. No one will ever know you are straightening your teeth.
