Invisalign® Clear Braces vs. Traditional Metal Braces

Invisalign® treatment has quickly become a preferred method for adults who want straight teeth. Our office provides this teeth-straightening treatment to our patients because of the many great benefits this system has to offer versus traditional metal braces.


Invisalign® Clear Braces vs. Traditional Metal Braces

While both types of teeth-straightening systems can correct problems like crowded teeth, gaps, spacing issues, underbite, overbite, and crossbite, only Invisalign® clear braces offer these advantages over metal braces.

  • Invisalign® trays are unnoticeable, unlike the obvious nature of metal braces. This can help you feel more confident in both social and professional situations.
  • Your trays can be removed when you need to brush your teeth, but traditional braces can make dental hygiene more difficult.
  • Invisalign® trays are made of smooth, clear material that won’t irritate your mouth, where metal brackets and wires can cause soreness and even abrasions.
  • With clear braces, you can continue to eat the foods you love, including popcorn and caramel. Traditional metal braces can put restrictions on many of your favorite foods because they can harm or damage the brackets and wires.
  • During Invisalign® treatment, patients visit our office every 4 to 6 weeks. Metal braces often require more frequent visits to the office and sometimes emergency visits if a wire or band falls out of place.
  • The Invisalign® system shows you a computer simulation of your personalized treatment plan and creates a series of aligner trays that you can switch out every few weeks. Traditional braces require tightenings and adjustments that can cause achy jaws after each visit.
  • Invisalign® often takes less time than traditional braces. Our patients often have straight teeth in just 12 months!

With these features, you know that Invisalign® clear braces are a treatment worth exploring!
