Benefits of Invisalign® vs. Traditional Braces


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.

Dr. Cross has done such a fabulous job in the 8+ years I’ve been his patient, it leaves him with very little work to do on me these past few years. I appreciate how he embraces and has mastered cutting-edge technology. It’s also comforting that he remembers minor details about the condition of my teeth without even having to refer to my chart. The girls at the front desk have an equally impressive memory and are so sweet and friendly.
