Traditional braces are still used to straighten out teeth and improve smiles, but there are new and more advanced options now available. If you need braces today, you might not actually need those traditional metal wire braces. Invisalign® clear aligners are a very popular alternative for a variety of reasons. Find out more about the Invisalign advantage in this blog.

Both Invisalign and traditional braces can provide you with a confident and beautiful smile, but the advantages of Invisalign are quite apparent. This treatment option has been used by more than four million people to achieve their best smile.

Unlike other types of braces or other clear aligners, Invisalign offers the following advantages:

  • Proprietary SmartTrack® material for more predictable and controlled tooth movements

  • Blue indicator dots for teens to monitor compliance

  • Invisalign Teen Guarantee: If you’re unsatisfied with treatment within the first six months, switch to braces at no additional cost

More advantages of Invisalign:

  • Can treat simple to complex cases

  • Virtually invisible

  • Removable aligners

  • No pain or injuries from wires or brackets

  • Easy to see results

  • Improved oral hygiene

  • More dietary choices

  • Comfort

  • Teeth-grinding protection

Similar to traditional braces, Invisalign applies carefully controlled forces to your teeth, which moves them into a better position. However, instead of being made of metal, they are made of clear, flexible plastic which accounts for many of the advantages previously mentioned.

Invisalign allows you to remove your appliance to clean your teeth easily and allow you to eat your favorite foods. The material is both comfortable and virtually invisible so you’ll be able to maintain your self-confidence now and have a beautiful smile later on.
