Is Invisalign as Effective as Braces?

Are you looking to take your smile to the next level? Orthodontic treatment can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps, adjust bites, and correct overcrowding. There are many orthodontic treatments available, including Invisalign® Clear Aligners. Invisalign is a popular solution among patients, here’s why!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary clear orthodontic treatment. It utilizes transparent, plastic aligners to straighten teeth over time. Invisalign is set up so that you wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks. Each set of aligners will gently inch your teeth closer to their final positions. You will progress through each set until you reach the end of your treatment. Aligners must be worn up to 22 hours a day, but they can be removed to eat and clean your teeth!

What Can Invisalign Treat?

Invisalign is a great, effective orthodontic treatment that can combat a range of orthodontic issues, such as:

  • Crowding
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Gaps
  • Underbites & Overbites
  • & More!

Invisalign Aligners vs. Traditional Braces

While both orthodontic treatment options are great teeth straightening solutions, Invisalign offers an array of benefits that make it stand out above the rest! Invisalign aligners are:

  • Almost invisible – most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them
  • Comfortable & won’t scratch or irritate the inside of your mouth
  • Easy to clean – you won’t have to brush & floss around brackets & wires
  • Removable for eating, drinking, & keeping teeth clean
