In our experience, we often find that the patients often want to know the answer to “which is better; Invisalign or braces?” are either parents or adult patients.
Adult patients want to understand if, in fact, Invisalign is credible and if it works. Whereas, parent patients are exploring different brace options and want to know what works best.
Therefore, because we understand that these private procedures can be costly, we’ve provided the below to ensure you are fully informed on the advantages and disadvantages.
first things first; are you suitable?
Before you determine whether which procedure will be best, you need to understand if you are a good candidate.
Over recent years, Invisalign has advanced to a place where it is able to treat minor to complex bite cases.
However, there can exist more stubborn bite conditions like complex overbite states that may require wires, brackets and additional force and even in some cases, jaw surgery.
Just like conventional braces, Invisalign treats overbites, underbites, crossbites, crooked or crowded teeth, gaps (up to 6mm) as well as narrow smiles.
Truly discovering if the treatment is viable for your condition will begin with an orthodontic consultation.
Here, we will be able to examine all possibilities and even recommend some discreet systems that you may not even be aware of.
The consultation will determine what can be done to straighten your smile that meets your requirements and specifications.
For example, if you are looking for faster, quicker treatments, we can recommend powerful alignment systems that can be done twice as fast as conventional systems.

Invisalign treatment can be used to widely correct many orthodontic issues.
The procedure solves oral problems like:
- Overcrowding, which causes crooked teeth
- Diastema; spaces between teeth
- Narrow buccal corridors also referred to as narrow smiles/arches
- Rotated teeth
For the best results, you will be required to wear your aligners for 22 hours each day. They can be removed to eat, drink, floss and brush.
Yes, in order to avoid retention, retainers are to be worn following treatment – the length of time will vary from patient to patient and will be advised by the dentist during your consultation.

All you need to do is upload a photo of yourself smiling to Invisalign in order to see how powerful the aligners could be to transform your smile and teeth.
