Invisalign Vs. Braces

If crooked teeth cause you to hide your smile behind your hands, orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign can help. Which is best for you?

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a set of clear, removable dental aligners that fit over your teeth.Invisalign® aligners are customized to fit snugly over your teeth and slowly move them into the proper position. As long as you wear your aligners at least 22 hours per day, they work to discreetly correct your smile over time. 

How Long Will Invisalign Take To Fix My Smile?

Invisalign can straighten teeth just as fast or even faster than normal metal braces. The average treatment time is only 18 to 24 months, but you may even start to notice results in just weeks. 

Of course, every case is different, so only your dentist can determine your exact treatment protocol based upon your mouth’s specific condition and needs. 

What Are the Benefits of Using Invisalign Instead of Metal Braces?

Invisalign is a comfortable, versatile, and effective treatment. It’s so popular because it helps teens and adults alike straighten their teeth without any of the embarrassment or pain common with standard metal braces:

  • Removable- easier to clean your mouth and eat what you want
  • Invisible to the naked eye
  • Faster results with less pain
  • Gentle shifting motion
  • Safe and reliable
  • BPA-free
  • FDA-approved

I've been a patient of Dr. Piper's for the last 19 years so it's very obvious that I've been a very very satisfied patient. I had an excellent full check-up today with x-rays and everything was perfect. Perfect because I've been going consistently and following their experts on dental care, cleaning and good health! Bravo 👏 👏 👏

Dr. Piper and staff are always very professional, I have been a patient for over 15 years, and happy about it. Just got my teeth cleaned and checked recently, Sandra is friendly and thorough, and the office felt very clean which is important.

Staff were fast and attentive, didn't wait long before I saw Dr. Piper. The office is clean and organized. Was a great decision to use this practice and will be visiting again. Not a single issue. Cannot recommend enough.
