Invisalign vs Traditional Braces

Dental technology, just like all technology is always advancing and evolving. Invisalign is one advancement in teeth straightening that has numerous benefits when compared to traditional metal braces.

1. Comfort

When comparing comfort between Invisalign and traditional metal braces, patients overwhelming report that Invisalign’s comfort is a primary reason they chose this non-invasive treatment to straighten their teeth. Instead of metal wires and brackets which must be adjusted over years, Invisalign uses clear, smooth, unobstructive plastic aligners to shift your teeth into place over time. You won’t ever have to deal with the insides of your lips being scraped by metal brackets.

2. Invisalign is Less Noticeable

It almost goes without saying that when comparing the noticeability of Invisalign vs. traditional metal braces, there’s no contest. Invisalign is barely noticeable, even in photos. By contrast, there is no hiding metal and wire braces when you smile. The subtlety of Invisalign is just another reason it is the preferred teeth straightening choice for so many people in La Puente and surrounding communities.

3. Invisalign Allows You to Eat Whatever You Want

For best results, you’ll want to wear your aligners at least 20 hours per day. That means that you’re welcome to take them out to eat whatever you’d like! You won’t need to worry about food getting stuck in your teeth, as you can remove the aligners anytime you want. Plus, you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, which can be challenging with traditional metal braces.

4. Invisalign Gives You Fast Results

Most patients begin to see their teeth shifting into a straighter alignment in just a few months. Within six months, virtually all teens and adults will see a noticeable difference. Nearly all patients will require a shorter treatment time with Invisalign than with traditional metal braces. This expedited treatment is another reason more than 10 million people have chosen Invisalign over wire and bracket braces.

5. Invisalign Can Treat a Variety of Misalignments

Invisalign is effective at treating most common tooth alignment issues including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Gapped Teeth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Slanted Teeth
  • Protruding Teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Uneven Teeth

Is Invisalign the Right Choice for You?

Each patient is different, but many teens and adults, who do not have missing teeth, or active gum disease are excellent candidates for Invisalign treatment. Dr. Kumar will meet with you to examine your teeth and gums to determine if non-invasive, discreet, Invisalign treatment will provide the best outcome for you. If you are not a good candidate for Invisalign, La Puente Family Dental Center may recommend FASTBRACES® which can provide dramatic straightening results much faster than traditional metal braces. FASTBRACES may provide full treatment in just months.
