Invisalign vs. Braces: Which Should You Consider?

Posted on 5/8/2023 by Rendon Orthodontics
Invisalign vs. Braces: Which Should You Consider?Straightening crooked teeth, restoring bite, and aligning the jawbone are done using dental devices like braces and Invisalign. When these gadgets are mounted on the teeth, a patient will experience abnormality in the mouth. This also applies to the physical appearance as some of these appliances are visible on the front teeth.

Considerations in Choosing Invisalign vs Braces

Many people planning to straighten their teeth will choose their treatment option based on their preferences, comfort level, and advice from the dentist. Invisalign trays are a popular choice, but traditional braces are also valuable and effective.

Braces which are metal aligners are a more traditional way to correct crooked teeth. They are attached to the front of the teeth using rubber bands although nowadays, there are different types of braces including ceramic and lingual braces, which are attached behind the teeth. Invisalign, on the other hand, is made of clear plastic aligners, which are nearly invisible from a distance, giving a discrete look.

The choice of your treatment plan will depend on the complexity of your problems and the advice of the dentist. There are, however, various things you should know about tooth-aligning devices before you decide on the right method to use as both are comparably the same in terms of cost.


Invisalign systems are custom-made and come in a stylish form as they are nearly invisible. When used, brushing and flossing are easy because they are removable. This also gives a patient freedom of eating food of choice due to the removable nature, which also protects the devices from damage from such foods.

However, Invisalign trays are not good for complex cases. You have to clean them before and after use. You also need to have discipline in wearing them for approximately 20 to 22 hours daily for full effectiveness.


Braces give a permanent attachment, which is good for complex corrections. They are stain and heat-resistant and come in a variety of materials, but they can also be uncomfortable and irritating, thus limiting one to certain foods.
