While the end results can appear the same – a confident, beautiful smile – there are advantages to the Invisalign System. Here, we show you the different features for each treatment process to help you with your decision.
|Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so it’s difficult for others to notice the treatment.||The wires and brackets of traditional braces are visible.|
|Most patients may feel pressure on the teeth in the early stage when starting with the first few Invisalign aligners.||Most patients may feel pain each time braces are adjusted. The metal brackets may also irritate the mouth and cause ulcers.|
|Invisalign aligners are removable. You can remove them before eating/drinking and easily brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene.||Braces are fixed and not removable during the teeth straightening treatment. This makes it difficult to eat certain types of food (e.g. apples, nuts) and it can be difficult to clean and floss your teeth with the braces in.|
|Approximately 6-8 weeks between doctor visits.||Approximately 3-4 weeks between doctor visits.|
|Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration.||Traditional braces can only give you an estimate of the duration of treatment at the beginning of the treatment process.|
