If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, the first dentalcare option you have in mind is braces. But the thing about braces is that they are often unattractive, uncomfortable, and just outright inconvenient especially when it comes to cleaning your teeth and gums and eating.

But there is an alternative to traditional braces – Invisalign, a clear and removable aligner. Here are some of its advantages over braces.


A natural look will always be better than an artificial one. With Invisalign, a patient can achieve this illusion that he is not wearing aligners at all, because the aligners are clear. You cannot say the same thing for braces. These metal aligners are so unattractive that they can make a patient’s mouth too artificial and problematic.


Teeth alignment is a long process, so if given a choice, a patient will rather choose a comfortable experience over an uncomfortable one. Invisalign is not just natural looking because of its clearness, as it is also comfortable because of the fact that it is removable.


There is already a way to simulate what a patient’s smile will look like after the Invisalign treatment, making the experience much more targeted. On the other hand, traditional braces are not complemented by advancing dental technologies. They are still just metal pieces and wires that rely on trial and error.


In any kind of treatment method, not just in the oral department, safety is the top priority. Again, Invisalign tops traditional braces in this aspect. The metal pieces and wires of traditional braces can cause irritation to the gums and teeth, and on worse instances, they may even cut or puncture the patient’s mouth. The fact that Invisalign is made of clear and smooth plastic completely eliminates these threats.
