Comparing orthodontic braces vs. Invisalign aligners

Orthodontic Braces

Orthodontic braces work to steadily shift teeth that are crooked, crowded, or out of alignment. After a dentist adheres the metal brackets to teeth, patients don’t need to worry about removing their orthodontic appliance.

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners are great at shifting teeth that are mildly crooked or slightly crowded. While not suitable for more severe orthodontic cases, Invisalign is a great option for adult patients looking to subtly achieve a straight smile.
