Your Smile Makeover: Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign and traditional braces are both successful options for straightening teeth. While there is more control over finer adjustments with traditional braces, patients are often more interested in Invisalign. The Invisalign treatment process consists of wearing a system of clear aligner trays over time. These trays are preferred over traditional braces because they are:
- Almost invisible – Since the aligner trays are clear, you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your smile. Most people won’t even notice that you are wearing Invisalign.
- Functional – You don’t need to change your diet. With traditional braces, you can’t eat certain things out of fear that they will get stuck or break your brackets. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about a thing!
- Removable – While it is important to wear your aligner trays as often as possible, you can freely remove them to eat, brush, and floss.
- Effective – On average, most patients only have to wear Invisalign for 12-18 months.
