When deciding which orthodontic treatment is right for your patient, there are several options. Patients today can opt for traditional metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, and OrthoSnap clear aligners, depending on what your clinic offers. Deciding which option is best for your patient requires considering several factors, including cost, duration of treatment, comfort, and effectiveness.
One feature that sets OrthoSnap apart from other treatments is that our clear aligners work more quickly than other clear aligner systems while maintaining superior comfort over conventional braces. If your patient is considering orthodontic treatments and has questions about OrthoSnap, this overview should help them decide which option will work best.
Benefits of Traditional Braces
Individuals who believe they will have a hard time wearing clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day may benefit from traditional braces, which cannot be removed. Patients with particularly large gaps or complex cosmetic needs may benefit from traditional braces, although OrthoSnap is designed to treat complex cases that Invisalign cannot.
Benefits of OrthoSnap Clear Aligners
OrthoSnap clear aligners offer superior comfort compared to traditional metal braces, which require periodic tightening of metal wires. The clear aligners are also far more discrete. Most people will not be able to tell when you are wearing them. OrthoSnap also has the convenience of being removable for short periods of time. Other benefits of OrthoSnap over traditional braces include:
- A shorter treatment timeline
- Superior comfort
- Affordability (OrthoSnap is often less expensive than Invisalign or braces)
- No tightening appointments
- No extractions or IPR
- Ease of cleaning
- Eligibility for certain types of dental insurance
- A virtually invisible treatment
- No dietary restrictions
- Minimal oral discomfort
OrthoSnap clear aligners also have several benefits over other clear aligner brands. Our clear trays are more effective than Invisalign while costing significantly less (30 percent less in many cases). OrthoSnap treatments move individual teeth, meaning there is no need for IPR (interproximal reduction) to remove small amounts of enamel. OrthoSnap is also proven to align teeth in a shorter period of time than other clear aligner brands.
Which Option Is Right For The Patient?
When choosing between OrthoSnap clear aligners and traditional metal braces, ask your patient to consider the following questions.
- Which option fits my budget?
- How long do I want to undergo orthodontic treatments for?
- Which choice will deliver a more comfortable experience?
- How can I achieve the most optimal cosmetic results?
- What is my pain tolerance?
- Which treatment will be more discreet?
Learn How OrthoSnap Can Brighten Your Patient’s Smile
OrthoSnap technology was first patented in 2011 by Dr. Yan Pogorelsky. The trays are designed to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of aligners by eliminating the multi-step 3D/CAD process that can result in compounded inaccuracies that undermine the performance of the aligners and treatment overall. Our trays are manufactured with impression molding. This difference between the two processes can be seen with the naked eye.
