Do you want straighter teeth without the hassle of braces? Invisalign may be your solution.

Although Invisalign and traditional braces are both capable of getting you a perfect smile, Invisalign offers a clear and discreet option for those of us who don’t want a mouth full of metal.

Invisalign treatment involves using a series of clear aligners, fabricated specifically for each patient, to progressively straighten your teeth and fix your smile.   For many, this improves oral health and concurrently provides the aesthetic benefits of a straighter smile.  Continue reading to find out the main differences between treatment with Invisalign and metal braces.



If you have put off seeking orthodontic treatment because of concerns associated with the appearance of braces, you are not alone.  The completely clear nature of Invisalign allows patients to achieve a desired smile without the obvious brackets and wires that come with fixed braces.  With Invisalign treatment you are able to maintain your current professional aesthetic while resolving your orthodontic issues.



Another common complaint about treatment involving wires and brackets is irritation and discomfort.  Since Invisalign aligners have a smooth feel, they are considered more comfortable than traditional braces and the chance of sharp wires and brackets poking your gums and cheeks is reduced to zero.



We want treatment to improve your quality of life, not strain it.  The removable nature of Invisalign overcomes many of the issues associated with traditional braces since you take them off when you eat and brush your teeth.

This means you get to continue to enjoy your favourite foods with Invisalign whereas traditional braces provide dietary restrictions to avoid damaging the braces and disrupting treatment.

Invisalign also allows those of us with already crowded or crooked teeth a simpler cleaning experience than braces.  We know that cleaning isn’t always the easiest of tasks so the presence of additional cleaning surfaces that accompanies fixed braces can pose an extra challenge.
