Why is Invisalign Better than Braces?

Why is Invisalign Better than Braces?

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that eliminates the need for metal braces. The trays are removable, making it easy for you to continue brushing, flossing, eating and drinking your favorite foods. There are several benefits of using Invisalign over braces, a few of which have been mentioned below. 

Clear aligners

Invisalign aligners are clear, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. This makes them much more discreet than metal braces.


Invisalign offers a comfortable fit. Instead of bulky brackets and wires, Invisalign uses smooth, plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. Wear them throughout the day, and remove them for meals or to brush and floss your teeth. Invisalign also helps to improve comfort. Since there are no metal brackets or wires, you won’t have to worry about mouth irritation. Metal braces can be uncomfortable, inconvenient, and can potentially damage your teeth.


Invisalign treatment is also a notable cost saving when compared with traditional braces. Most dental insurance plans cover Invisalign. Additionally, Invisalign treatment is often more cost-effective than having metal braces placed.


Invisalign aligners are removable. Unlike metal braces, you don’t have to change your lifestyle with Invisalign. You can also take the aligners out when you brush and floss your teeth, so you don’t need to alter your oral care routine.

No dietary restrictions

When you have braces, you’ll have to avoid certain hard or sticky foods. With Invisalign, you can eat and drink whatever you want. You can remove the aligners at any time, so you can take them out to eat dinner or enjoy any other snack or meal you like.

Fewer dental visits

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place. Because they are clear, people won’t even know that you’re wearing them.

Fewer dental emergencies

Invisalign patients generally experience fewer dental emergencies than patients with traditional metal braces. This is because Invisalign aligners are removable. You do not have to worry about food being stuck between their teeth or brackets and wires falling off the teeth.
