Invisalign vs. Braces

Straight teeth, as well as a proper bite, can help make your smile beautiful and healthy. If your teeth need straightening or your bite needs correction, you can choose between Invisalign clear aligners or traditional braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign, also known as clear aligners, are virtually invisible dental appliances that straighten teeth. They look similar to retainers and can help fix a variety of dental issues, such as crooked teeth or overcrowding.

Invisalign does the same job as traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are removable, you can easily take them out to floss and brush comfortably. It’s much easier to maintain your oral health compared to braces.

What Are Braces?

Traditional braces use metal attachments that are fixed to the teeth. Wires are strung through the attachments and adjusted to move teeth. Rubberband attachments may also be used to correct dental issues. Retainers for bite issues can also be part of traditional braces.
