Invisalign™ Q & A

by Rupa Govindarajan, DMD

Why Should Choose Invisalign Braces Over Traditional Braces?

Invisalign braces offer a great deal of positive benefits over those of traditional braces. First, they are removable. So every time you need to brush your teeth or floss, you can simply snap the Invisalign braces off of your teeth. This is a huge benefit over traditional braces where you would need to thread the floss through the wires to clean between your teeth. Another benefit is they are made from clear, hard plastic so they are durable and almost "invisible." There is very little social stigma over Invisalign braces in comparison to traditional braces. Those are just a few of the positives. In short, Invisalign braces help to improve your oral health while straightening your smile.

Do Invisalign Braces Work Faster?

Invisalign braces to not work faster. They are very much like traditional braces in terms of time. They have an advance in that they do not cause irritation or sores in your mouth that traditional braces are known to do. This makes the time that you have to wear braces more comfortable and easier to endure. So while Invisalign braces are not specifically shorter in duration, they make the journey to a beautiful smile a lot more pleasant.

Are Invisalign Braces Good for Teens or Just Adults?

Invisalign braces are perfect for teens, tweens, and adults. In some cases, they might work well for children under the age of ten, too.

Are Invisalign Braces More Expensive Than Traditional Braces?

For the most part, the costs are comparable. Invisalign braces tend to be a little more expensive but the cost is subjective. Because you can remove them, you have better oral care and improved oral health. They may prevent additional cavities and other dental issues that require additional expense. In some cases, insurance may also cover the cost or partially cover the cost of Invisalign braces.
