While straightening misalignment by any method offers oral health benefits, there are some significant advantages to choosing Invisalign® aligners. An Invisalign® treatment is as effective as metal braces in most cases. Follow-up appointments are faster and easier, too.
Both Invisalign® and metal braces are long-term treatment plans. However, Invisalign® offers the benefit of your treatment process being more discreet and invisible for that time, without the look of braces.
Invisalign® trays are very thin and light, so very comfortable, compared to metal braces. Not only are metal braces more bulky, they are notorious for scratching soft tissues and causing irritation.
Because Invisalign® aligners can be removed, unlike traditional braces, you can clean your teeth better, for better oral hygiene. This is better for your oral health, reducing your chances of tooth decay and gum disease.
