Benefits of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

April 30, 2022
Posted By: Michael Zhang, DMD Team

Orthodontics is an essential part of dentistry because the treatment restores confidence and promotes better oral health. In our dental office, we’re happy to offer Invisalign in Tustin, CA.

This system of clear aligners straightens smiles, restoring confidence and providing our patients with healthier teeth and gums.

Why Invisalign Over Traditional Braces?

When patients seek orthodontic treatment, they ask for Invisalign or a transparent system that doesn’t draw attention to itself. Invisalign is ideal for anyone who wants a discreet experience without metal and brackets.

Designed for comfort, Invisalign is made of smooth plastic that does not weigh down the mouth or scratch soft tissues. Traditional braces, on the other hand, can be cumbersome and scratchy.

Another benefit of Invisalign compared with traditional braces is that you can remove Invisalign aligners to brush and floss your teeth, and during meals and snacks. This promotes better oral hygiene because you don’t have to clean around wires and brackets, which is challenging!

Also, Invisalign typically means fewer trips to the dental office during treatment because you can change your aligners on the provided schedule—moving through a customized sequence that you store at home.  

Candidates for Invisalign

Not everyone is a good candidate for orthodontics, but your dentist can provide a consultation to ensure Invisalign is the right choice for you. We check your teeth and gums at this visit, evaluate your orthodontic issues, and talk to you about candidacy, price, and how long you’ll be in treatment. Treatment times can last for two years, but typically it’s closer to one year or eighteen months.
