Invisalign or Traditional Braces: Which is Better?

Invisalign or Traditional Braces: Which is Better?

More than 5 million people have chosen Invisalign clear aligners to get their perfect smile.

As we prepare for our exciting Invisalign Flash sale this weekend, March 24, we’re taking a look at the advantages Invisalign offers over traditional braces.

Comfort and Convenience

Invisalign

  • Aligners are trimmed to match your gum line for better comfort and appearance.
  • You can easily removable the aligners for eating and drinking as well as for brushing and flossing.
  • You don’t have to worry about emergency office visits for broken brackets and wires.

Traditional Braces

  • Wires and brackets make it difficult to enjoy some of your favorite foods.
  • Oral hygiene can suffer as brushing and flossing become cumbersome.

Appearance

Invisalign

  • Aligners are virtually invisible.

Traditional Braces

  • Due to how noticeable wire braces are, many adults find them embarrassing.

Material

Invisalign

  • Made from proprietary SmartTrack® material that allows for more predictable, controlled tooth movements.

Traditional Braces

  • Made from wires and brackets that can cut into your cheek.

Compliance for Teens

Invisalign

  • Parents can use the blue compliance indicator to ensure teens wear aligners enough.

Traditional Braces

  • Parents may not know if teens are wearing bands as instructed.
