3 Differences between Invisalign and Traditional Braces
Modern-day orthodontics means you no longer have to suffer months—or even years—with traditional wire and metal braces. With Invisalign invisible braces, teens and adults can straighten their teeth quickly and with an orthodontic appliance that fits in with any lifestyle.

How Invisalign Differs from Traditional Braces
- Invisalign braces are virtually undetectable. With Invisalign, teeth are gently moved into place with a series of clear, plastic aligners that are practically invisible. Even someone sitting across the table from you will be hard-pressed to notice you are wearing them.
- Invisalign braces make it easier to take care of your teeth. Because the aligners are removable, you take them out to brush and floss so there is no difficulty cleaning your teeth as there is with traditional braces. An added bonus is that you take them out to eat as well, so there are no food restrictions with Invisalign.
- Invisalign braces are more convenient. Treatment is generally quicker with Invisalign than it is with traditional braces. Because you will be given more than one set of aligners at a time, your treatment will require fewer trips to the dentist than you would expect with traditional orthodontics. If you have an important business meeting or a special occasion where it would be best to go without the aligners, you can remove them for a few hours if needed.
Invisalign Is a Great Choice to Straighten Your Smile
It can be tempting to leave the plastic aligners out more than is recommended. But it is important to note that you must commit to wearing the custom aligners for at least 22 hours each day or your treatment will not go as planned.
