Invisalign® vs. Traditional Braces

There are a number of differences between Invisalign® and traditional braces that make Invisalign a more attractive option for adults and older teens. First and foremost, Invisalign treatment is significantly less noticeable. This makes treatment a more attractive option for people who do not wish to flash a smile full of metal. What’s more, Invisalign aligner trays are designed to fit comfortably into your mouth, eliminating the risk of soft tissue irritation that is common with wire and bracket braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

Wire and bracket braces, even those made of clear plastic, require dietary restrictions and can interfere with proper oral hygiene. Because Invisalign trays are removable, these issues are eliminated, allowing you maintain a proper diet and optimal oral health.

Traditional braces pull your teeth into alignment through painful manual adjustments, a process that can take upwards of three years in adult mouths. Invisalign aligners gently push your teeth into their optimal position by gradually shifting specific teeth with each new tray. In many cases, Invisalign treatment can be completed in as few as 12 months, a fraction of the time required for traditional braces.
