Please Read Our Safety Precautions
|•||Braces use metal brackets: Most people are familiar with traditional braces, which use metal brackets and a thin wire to move teeth to their proper position. The metal brackets are glued directly to the front surface of your teeth.
Braces use wires & bands: The wire is attached to the brackets with a series of elastic bands. Some of our younger patients enjoy choosing the colors of their bands.
|•||Braces make it hard to eat: Traditional braces may give you difficulties when eating hard, sticky foods. They also make brushing and flossing your teeth much more difficult. Some patients may have tooth discoloration due to the brackets and poor hygiene practices.
Braces can be uncomfortable: As treatment progresses, the wire needs to be tightened. Many patients find that traditional braces can be quite uncomfortable.
|•||Less difficulty eating food: The trays are also removable, meaning there are no issues with food getting caught or difficulty eating. It can be a huge inconvenience to eat food with metal braces.
|•||More discreet due to clear trays: The aligner system is very discrete. It is a clear, plastic aligner, and most people won't even know you are wearing it. Many people find this beneficial, from high school teenagers to professional adults.
|•||Less discomfort from lack of wires: There is also no discomfort caused by metal wires, because Invisalign doesn't use wires to help straighten teeth. The lack of brackets, wires, and metal is a huge benefit of Invisalign.
|•||Less regular orthodontic appointments: Invisalign also reduces the number of appointments you need to schedule. Patients with traditional braces typically need to schedule an appointment once a month.
|•||Less emergency orthodontic appointments: If a bracket falls off or the wire breaks, you would also need to schedule an appointment. With Invisalign, if you lose or break an aligner tray, you would simply move on to the next one in your series.|
