A Parent’s Guide To Braces And Invisalign

| February 2024

One of the questions we get asked the most from parents and patients is: “which is better: Braces or Invisalign?

It’s a hard question to answer because so much depends on each patient and their specific desires and needs. That’s why at EJL Dental we prioritize spending time with you and listening to your individual goals. That’s what helps us land on the best possible treatment plan for each unique patient who comes to see us for orthodontics.

Let’s talk about some of the different treatment options that we offer at EJL Orthodontics and the differences between them. Traditional silver or clear braces are the most commonly recognized and can be a great choice. It’s important to avoid foods that can damage brackets and wires, and brushing really well is a top priority. Braces are also great for patients who simply aren’t going to wear aligners for 22 hours a day. And that’s okay! You’ll come to our office every 6-8 weeks for adjustments and we’ll be on our way to a straighter smile in no time.

On the other hand, clear aligners are an excellent alternative for patients that are good at keeping to a schedule and there are no food restrictions at all! It’s also much easier to brush and floss your teeth with aligners than with braces.

If Dr. Johnson feels that one would be a better option for any reason, we’ll let you know why and we’ll talk through everything in detail together. In most cases both treatment options are efficient and effective at giving your child their ideal smile, and making parents smile along the way. 

Come by and meet Dr. Timothy Johnson and the entire staff to see what we mean. Visit our Contact Us page or call us at (301) 881-6170 to schedule a complimentary consultation. We can’t wait to meet you!
