by Dr. Yasaman Garakani on November 10, 2015

The need to straighten teeth that are naturally crooked or misaligned is a necessary procedure for many individuals. In the past, that meant correcting and straightening them with braces. Now however, it is possible to straighten your teeth with Invisalign®, a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. The Invisalign® system has many advantages over traditional braces that make straightening your teeth an easier and in many cases a faster process. If you are considering a process for straightening teeth, here are some advantages that Invisalign® offers over traditional braces:

Virtually Invisible

Compared to traditional braces which require brackets and wires, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible and give your smile a much more aesthetically pleasing look. In many cases, people won’t even notice you have them on.


The Invisalign® system uses clear plastic aligners that are smooth and comfortable, whereas traditional braces contain wires that can poke your mouth and cause discomfort.

Easy to Clean

The aligners for Invisalign® invisible braces are easily removable so that you can clean them without much effort, whereas brushing and flossing with traditional braces requires more effort and makes it difficult to clean around hard to get areas of the teeth.

Eating Limitations

With the Invisalign® system, you can eat whatever you like and not have to worry about food become wedged or stuck in them. Traditional braces are not so easy to deal with and come with restrictions on the kinds of foods you can comfortably eat.


If you need to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® invisible braces are an excellent choice that provides a comfortable, convenient, and less noticeable method compared to that of traditional braces.
