Invisalign or braces? It’s not quite the age-old question, but it’s definitely an important one. Because while Invisalign and braces are both designed to straighten your teeth, they go about the job in very different ways.
As most people know, braces consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the front of the teeth. These brackets are connected by an arch wire that guides them to proper alignment. Braces are usually worn for 1-3 years depending on the severity of the patient’s misalignment, and are now available in a variety of discreet colors.
Invisalign takes a different tact, aligning teeth with a custom-made series of trays that are worn over the teeth, comfortably and gently shifting one’s teeth into place. Unlike braces, no metal brackets or wires are required with Invisalign, making it practically invisible. Better yet, there’s little maintenance involved. Simply insert a new aligner tray every two weeks until the treatment is complete. It’s that simple.
