If you are seeking to correct crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, both Invisalign® and traditional braces can be effective treatment methods. Traditional metal braces have been used for decades to provide patients with straight teeth, and the materials and techniques have advanced over the years.
However, Invisalign® has some unique advantages compared to traditional braces, including:
- Clear aligners that are nearly invisible when worn
- Aligners that can be removed when eating, brushing, or flossing
- Reduced overall treatment time
Since the aligners used during your Invisalign® treatment are custom-made to address your unique concerns, you can maximize the results while minimizing the duration of the treatment. While traditional metal braces often take two years or more to properly align the teeth, some of our patients have successfully straightened their teeth in as few as six months with Invisalign®. In addition, our Invisalign® patients at OC Lifesmiles have taken advantage of a new dental device called AcceleDent, which can utilize SoftPulse™ technology to quicken the time it takes to gently guide your teeth into their ideal position. With Invisalign®, you can inconspicuously and effectively straighten your teeth for a healthy looking, beautiful smile.
