Invisalign vs. Traditional Metal Braces

Dentist Serving Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park, New York

Invisalign teeth straightening in Buffalo

Invisalign® is growing in popularity with our Buffalo-area patients, and it's easy to see why. Time and time again we hear from patients that they are extraordinarily satisfied with their Invisalign® experience. We love hearing those stories – and sharing them.

We also enjoy answering your questions. And for those who aren't all that familiar with Invisalign®, there are surely a lot of those. Undoubtedly the most basic question is: why? Why Invisalign®? What advantages do these aligners offer over traditional metal braces?

The simple answer is: a lot. The more involved answer is that, in comparison to traditional metal braces, Invisalign® aligners are more:

  • Comfortable (no metal wires poking you in the lips or cheeks)
  • Convenient (no need to return to our office for repeated, unpleasant tightenings)
  • Inconspicuous (Invisalign® aligners are completely invisible – no one will know you're wearing them)
  • Tidy (you won't have to worry about getting food underneath metal wires – you just remove your aligners before mealtime)

We know this list won't answer all of your questions or address all of your concerns about Invisalign®. But it should provide you with a clear sense of why so many patients love Invisalign® so much.
