How Invisalign Compares to Traditional Braces

Grand Rapids Invisalign Dentists

At first glance, Invisalign and traditional metal braces seem similar — for the same cost, they both provide you with a beautiful smile. However, as the dentists at River Valley Dental Care know from experience, a closer inspection reveals several key differences.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Clear Braces allow you to eat all of the same foods. When it comes time to eat, just pop out your Invisalign retainer and eat whatever you want.

Made from clear, smooth plastic fitted specifically to your mouth, Invisalign retainers fit comfortably on your teeth without anyone else having to notice. Traditional braces use clunky metal wires that not only cover your teeth, but also irritate your cheeks and gums.

Keep Your Teeth Clean

Braces make it difficult to brush and floss all the hard-to-reach areas of your teeth. With Invisalign, you can brush and floss your teeth normally. Your dental health will be better, and your smile will be more beautiful.

Discuss the pros and cons of each option with your dentist in order to make the best decision.
