When it comes to choosing between lingual braces or Invisalign, Dr. Bardawil identifies four benefits that Invisalign has over lingual braces.
1- Adults seem to tolerate Invisalign better than lingual braces. Adult patients sometimes have difficulty with having braces on the back of their teeth because even though the newer lingual braces have a much lower profile, adults often comment that their tongue is sensitive to the appliances.
If you are in Invisalign treatment, you are not limited in the types of foods you can eat, unlike other types of appliances used in orthodontics.
2- Dr. Bardwil ,invisalign expert in Beirut, Lebanon says patients who have lingual braces have some limitations to what they can eat, just like patients who wear traditional braces. But with Invisalign, you simply remove your aligners when you eat, making it possible for you to eat anything you want.
3- Invisalign provides a more gentle tooth movement. Its system of clear, plastic aligners works to gradually move your teeth into proper alignment.
4- Invisalign often offers a quicker and usually less expensive regimen, as compared to lingual braces..Patients of Dr.Bardawil often comment on how quickly they see their teeth shift into proper placement as they progress through their aligners, he said. Average treatment with Invisalign is one year.
“Invisalign continues to increase in popularity, especially since the technology is constantly improving and more types of malocclusion are treatable with Invisalign,” Dr. Bardawil says . “My Invisalign patients are incredibly happy with the results of their treatment.”
Invisalign has shown nationally there is a 96 percent patient satisfaction level.
