Advantages Over Braces

Convenient, Clean non-braces -Invisalign The main disadvantage of metal braces is their awkward appearance.

People wearing metal braces are often reluctant to smile openly and teens may be especially sensitive to this problem.

For this reason, many people - especially teenagers are not so open to the idea of getting braces. Not only are Invisalign braces nearly invisible, they are not braces, not permanent and they can be removed.

Metal braces, brackets and wires are difficult to clean. Braces definitely cannot be removed and often are problematic with loose or broken braces and wires.

The no-brace, Invisalign trays are more easily cleaned. They can be removed and thoroughly and completely scrubbed. With the ease of dental hygiene, bacterial infections occurrences are low.

Metal braces are difficult to clean. Food particles, often stuck in braces, are breeding grounds for pathogens.
