5 Reasons to Choose Invisalign vs. Braces

Everyone’s smile is different. That’s why you’ll find both braces (metal and less conspicuous ceramic) and clear aligners for orthodontic treatment at our office. When it comes to Invisalign vs. braces, there are certainly some key differences to consider. We’ll help you evaluate your options and choose the one that’s best for your smile. 

If you’re ready to straighten your teeth, call us today at 219-641-3422 for an appointment in Crown Point, IN. In the meantime, see some of the reasons our patients really like Invisalign:

  • No One Notices Your Treatment – Invisalign aligners are made out of a smooth, clear plastic. They are practically invisible when you wear them. Chances are, most people won’t even notice them in your smile. 
  • Personalized Treatment Plan – We use special software to create a treatment plan designed to address your specific orthodontic issues. We can even show you a digital preview of your results! The Invisalign lab uses our plan to create your aligners. This results in more targeted treatment.
  • No Need to Change Diet or Hygiene – Wearing braces means giving up popcorn and other foods that get caught in brackets and wires. In addition, brushing and flossing becomes a lot more difficult. With Invisalign, you simply pop out your aligners before eating or oral hygiene. 
  • Simple to Use – You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, then just move to the next ones in your series. You’ll only need to see us every six weeks or so for a quick progress checkup. Best of all, there is no uncomfortable adjustment of wires.
  • Faster Results Than Braces – Though the length of treatment depends on the problems you need to correct, braces can take more than two years. Invisalign treatment time is typically much shorter, 12 to 18 months.
