6 Reasons to Choose Invisalign Versus Traditional Braces

If you’ve been considering braces, you’ll be happy to know that there is an alternative that may be even better than traditional metal ones. Our Arlington, Texas dental office is having a special day next week dedicated to Invisalign. Before you call and grab your spot, look over the list of great reasons to consider this series of aligners to get your perfect smile.
Invisalign aligners are completely removable. Due to this fact, you’ll need to remove the trays for eating and maintaining oral hygiene by brushing and flossing.



They are comfortable when inserted. When the aligners are in your mouth, you’ll hardly feel them. With the lack of wires or brackets attached to your teeth, they are much more form fitting.


Invisalign is nearly undetectable. The word Invisalign looks and sounds like the word invisible. Patients that use Invisalign can continue with life and most of the people they interact with won’t detect that orthodontic treatment is happening. The aligners can occasionally be removed for social events, but if you keep them in place they are still more aesthetically appealing than traditional metal braces.

A Reduced Risk of Problems that Require Immediate Dentist Attention. Traditional braces can be damaged, making your mouth uncomfortable or wounded. Alternatively, the aligners can be removed during sport activities to reduce risk of dental damage at the expenses of metal brackets. Since Invisalign’s aligners don’t have any metal parts, emergency dental visits are less likely to occur.


No Metal Means No Allergic Reaction. Invisalign’s material is FDA approved, and contains no metal. This means that patients previously restricted due to metal allergies now have a smile correcting option.


Time and Cost can be Diminished. While traditional braces can require a couple years for treatment, Invisalign reduces this treatment time to, at most, less than one year. Additionally, Invisalign can be cheaper than traditional braces depending on orthodontic needs prior to their use and each individual’s dental needs.
