Why is Invisalign better than metal braces?

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

When it comes to straightening your teeth and improving your smile, there are several effective non-surgical options. Two of the most popular methods are metal braces and Invisalign®.

While metal braces are still trusted by many, Invisalign® is quickly becoming many patients preferred choice. Here are just a few reasons why we feel Invisalign® is better than metal braces.


Unlike clunky metal braces, Invisalign® is sleek, clear and all but invisible. Improving your facial appearance, doesn’t mean you have to wear unsightly wires throughout the process.

You can remove it whenever you want

Once you get braces, your mouth is affixed with them for several months at a time. You can remove Invisalign® at any point for daily activities like eating and brushing your teeth. Make sure you don’t leave it out for too long though, it’s still got work to do.

It is comfortable

When installed correctly, you will hardly notice that your Invisalign® is in. There are no sharp protrusions to irritate your mouth or gums and nothing that can cause any harm to any part of your mouth.

For these reasons and several more, we feel that Invisalign® is the preferred choice when it comes to teeth straightening.
