Invisalign vs. Braces

Invisalign07Many patients ask the question: What is the best method for straightening teeth? Invisalign braces or traditional braces?

Invisalign and traditional braces are both effective ways of straightening teeth, but in the Invisalign vs braces debate, there is a lot to consider.

Advantages of Traditional Braces

Permanent | Most patients love the removable feature of Invisalign braces, but some prefer the permanence of traditional braces. It is impossible to misplace orthodontics when they are stuck to your teeth.
A Fix for Everything | Invisalign braces can perform all of the normal tasks when it comes to straightening teeth: correcting underbite, overbite, crooked teeth, etc. However, if there is a seriously complicated issue, traditional braces might be a better fit for you.
Potential Price Difference | In some cases, metal braces are less expensive than Invisalign braces. However, the price depends on how long the metal braces are worn, as well as other variables.

Advantages of Invisalign Braces

Removable | With Invisalign, you can remove your orthodontics at your discretion as you straighten your teeth. You can eat the foods that are off-limits with traditional braces, wear a sports mouth guard, and brush and floss with ease.
Invisible | In the Invisalign vs braces battle, the clear winner of the aesthetic category is Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign braces are sleek and subtle, so people only have to know you are wearing orthodontics if you tell them.
Smooth | Invisalign braces will never poke at or irritate the inside of your mouth. You will not need to carry wax around with you. Patients hardly notice they are wearing braces.
Simple Maintenance | With traditional braces, you will need to adjust to flossing and brushing under wires and through brackets. Invisalign aligners can be removed while you brush and floss normally, and you can easily clean your aligners in denture cleaner or with your toothbrush.
