Braces vs. Invisalign: What Ripon’s Best Dentist Recommends, Ripon, Wisconsin

Everyone wants straight teeth. But what is the best way to achieve that perfect smile? At Hillside Dental Associates, the premier dental practice in Ripon, WI, the dentists help patients get the smile they’ve always wanted with Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. For more than 30 years, the dentists at Hillside Dental Associates have been providing affordable dental care, including preventative care. Using state-of-the-art technology and innovative procedures, the dentists also take a modern approach to straightening teeth with Invisalign.

What Is Invisalign?

InvisalignInvisalign braces are custom-made aligners created specifically for each patient. At Hillside Dental Associates, the dentists use the iTero digital 3D intraoral scanner to create the personalized plastic aligners trays that gradually and gently shift teeth into place. Every two weeks, the dentists will make a new set of aligners until the treatment is complete.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign aligner trays are clear and nearly impossible to see compared to braces, which require brackets and wires that sometimes poke and irritate the mouth. Not only are Invisalign aligners more comfortable than braces, but also they are more convenient. The trays are removable for easy cleaning, whereas braces require much more diligent brushing and flossing. Also, the dentists at Hillside Dental Associates find that Invisalign braces interfere less with patients’ lives than braces. With braces, the dentists recommend patients stay away from eating popcorn, chips, pretzels, nuts, and certain candies. With Invisalign, however, patients can eat whatever they way.
