Take your smile to the next level

Most people agree that a smile is important to someone’s appearance. Therefore, many people get braces or Invisalign to have straight, healthy teeth. Invisalign can be used for a variety of purposes, including crowding and spacing issues, as well as some mild and moderate bite issues. However, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you or your child. It comes down to personal preferences and priorities.

Invisalign clear teeth aligners can help you achieve a flawless smile by correcting many orthodontic problems that could cause trouble if left untreated.

Invisalign is appealing to adults and teens who are self-conscious, as it is discrete and can be removed. However, its success depends almost entirely on the patient being disciplined in wearing them as directed. With regular braces, there is no choice but to wear them.

To get Invisalign, you need a consultation with your dentist. They’ll take impressions of your mouth and create a treatment plan. Your dentist will help you get the results you want. 

In order to get results, you’ll need Invisalign trays for the majority of your day (20–22 hours/day). However, they can be used for cooking, brushing, flossing, or for special occasions.

Here is a summary of Pros and Cons of Invisalign and Braces:

The main difference between braces and Invisalign is appearance. Invisalign is practically invisible, while metal braces are more noticeable.

Invisalign trays are made of clear plastic, while braces are metal. Some kids enjoy picking out different colored bands for braces, but Invisalign is generally preferred for its appearance. If you are someone that wants your teeth alignment to be discreet, Invisalign is the superior choice. 


That’s the good news. Invisalign is actually an affordable tooth-straightening option. Invisalign is more affordable than you might think, with dental insurance and payment plans making it easier to correct misaligned teeth. Meet with your Invisalign-trained doctor for an assesment, they’ll help you figure out costs and which payment terms work best.


Teeth straightening can be uncomfortable, but usually gets tolerable over time. Invisalign is usually more comfortable than braces, because they don’t press as hard on teeth and don’t have harsh edges that can cut the inside of the lip and tongue. If you or your child play sports, metal braces can be dangerous if there’s any type of contact.


Braces have been used to straighten teeth and beautify smiles for years. The challenge with Invisalign is that the trays are removable, so patients may not always comply with the suggested time of use. If you forget or misplace the trays, your teeth are going to shift while you are not wearing them.

Invisalign may take longer to straighten teeth than traditional braces, especially if the patient does not wear the trays as often as recommended. Invisalign also may not work for teeth that are severely misaligned or rotated. If you are concerned about whether Invisalign could work for you, you can book a free consultation.


Invisalign is convenient when you want to eat your favorite foods, but remembering to take out the trays and store them securely is often overlooked. Since Invisalign aligners are smooth and lack any sharp edges, you don’t have to worry about getting any painful nicks or cuts in your mouth.


Care and Cleaning
Cleaning your teeth is important regardless of whether you have braces or Invisalign. With braces, you can brush and floss normally, but you may need to use a smaller brush to clean if food gets stuck in the metal. With Invisalign, brushing and flossing is the same, but you need to clean the trays after each meal. You can use warm water to rinse and brush or a special Invisalign cleaning solution.

It can be a hassle to clean the crevices of Invisalign trays, especially if you’re away from home. Without proper cleaning, there can be a build-up of bacteria or solid food. So be diligent about oral health and don’t forget to brush and floss!


Follow-Up and Post-Treatment
Regular orthodontic appointments are recommended whether you have braces or Invisalign. For braces, this usually means about every month and for Invisalign every 4-6 weeks. Once you have completed your treatment with braces you will be required to wear a retainer of some kind (usually just at night) to ensure the teeth maintain their position. Without that, you risk your teeth moving back to the way they were before.

Invisalign also requires that you wear a tray at night once your treatment is complete.
