Benefits of Invisalign over Traditional Braces

Invisalign Braces | Jen Kim Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

While both traditional metal braces and Invisalign can help you effectively achieve a straighter smile, there are several unique benefits Invisalign can offer. Three of the benefits are discussed in greater detail below:

No Unsightly Wires or Brackets

Probably the most obvious advantage of Invisalign over traditional braces is that Invisalign trays are clear. Many of our patients who want orthodontic treatment, especially middle-aged or older adults, are hesitant to commit to traditional braces because of the bulky metal wires.
