If you already have metal braces in Burbank, you may be wondering if it’s possible to have your braces removed and switch to Invisalign. The answer is “yes,” but not every patient can switch from metal braces to Invisalign.
We’ll get into the details in this blog post from Burbank Dental & Sleep. And, if you haven’t already committed to getting traditional braces, we’ll discuss a few reasons why you may want to skip them, and choose Invisalign from Dr. Jessica Singh instead.
So, can you get metal braces, change your mind, and switch to Invisalign? The answer is “maybe.” It’s possible for some patients to have their braces removed, and use Invisalign to straighten their teeth instead.
However, this is not true for everyone. Some people have really complex orthodontic issues that require braces and other treatments to resolve, and are not suitable for Invisalign. Or, if you’re nearly done wearing your braces, it may not make sense to switch.
Switching is also really expensive. Basically, you may end up paying the full price for both braces and Invisalign, since your orthodontist will have to design a full treatment plan for each type of orthodontic treatment.
So yes, it is possible for some patients to make the switch. But, in general, it’s better to weigh your options, choose either braces or Invisalign, and stick with them for the entirety of your orthodontic treatment.
