How is Invisalign Different From Traditional Braces?

If you’re like us, you probably grew up with plenty of friends who had traditional wire braces, either early in their life or when they became an adult. You heard stories about the pain, maintenance, hassle, and cost associated with the wires, brackets, and look of these braces. However, there’s now a different solution that we offer right here in our office. Invisalign solves many of the problems associated with traditional braces, but also leaves many questions, especially at the beginning of the treatment. Let’s take a look at some of the common differences between Invisalign and traditional metal braces.

1. Invisalign aligners allow patients to eat nearly anything they would like.

2. Invisalign aligners aren’t made of metal, which results in less digging, soreness, and inflammation.

3. Invisalign aligners can be removed, while braces are a fixed solution that can only be adjusted through dental visits.

4. The removal of Invisalign aligners results in cleaner teeth since patients can access every part of the mouth to find decay.

Traditional braces may work better in complex cases, such as uprighting root movements, turning or rotating cylindrical teeth, or making major corrections to back tooth alignment. However, many patients find that Invisalign is the right solution at the right price. We’re a 2015 Invisalign Top 1% Provider.
