Bristol, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/29/2019 -- While orthodontics is often associated with teenagers, it's never too late to improve one's smile. Many adults come to the leading cosmetic dentist in Philadelphia, Center City Emergency Dentist (CCED), for teeth straightening, either because they never got around to having their teeth straightened when they were younger, or because of bad dental habits that caused their teeth to become crooked during adulthood.

Invisalign and braces are both available at CCED, and both are well-established orthodontic treatments. Which one a patient chooses depends on whether he or she cares more about convenience or appearance.

For convenience, braces are the way to go. Invisalign must be removed every time a patient eats anything or drinks any beverage besides water, and the aligning trays of Invisalign must be switched every two weeks. Braces, on the other hand, stay in the mouth all the time, so there's no need to concern oneself with removing them to eat or drink. Braces may take a longer amount of time to straighten the teeth, but are generally more effective at rotating and moving teeth vertically to fix underbites or overbites.

Invisalign is far less noticeable than braces, so for patients who are worried about how they'll look with braces, Invisalign removes this insecurity. In addition to making patients feel more comfortable with the way they look, Invisalign is also more comfortable physically because it does not involve the metal or rubber bands associated with braces.

A patient interested in teeth straightening does not have to make the decision between Invisalign and braces alone. Helping patients compare and select treatment options is one of the things the staff at CCED, the leading cosmetic dentistry office in Center City, Philadelphia, do best. Contact CCED today.
