What are the benefits of Invisalign Aligners over Traditional braces?

Invisalign clear aligners offer an array of benefits over traditional braces. Some of the most commonly discussed ones include:

Straighter Teeth

For many patients, traditional metal braces can only move the teeth so much. On the other hand,Invisalign clear aligners can be made to facilitate even the smallest of movements, allowing us to finesse your treatment.


Once the metal brackets and wires are placed on your teeth, they are there until your treatment is over. This means that you have to make changes to your diet, sometimes giving up your favorite foods. Traditional metal braces make oral hygiene more complicated because you have to clean around the brackets and wires.
On the other hand, Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so you don’t have to worry about food restrictions. Plus, you can brush and floss your teeth just like you normally would.

Better Oral Health

As mentioned above, the brackets and wires of metal braces get in the way when you’re trying to brush and floss your teeth. Since you can remove Invisalign clear aligners, you can brush and floss your teeth like you normally would. This helps prevent cavities and other oral health issues, improving your oral and overall health.

Less Maintenance

Since Invisalign clear aligners can be removed, they require much less maintenance than traditional metal braces. Patients are able to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would and don’t have to visit the dentist as often over the course of their treatment.

Better Aesthetics/Invisible Appearance

Traditional metal braces, and even so-called “clear” braces, are obvious. The brackets on the teeth and the wires can be clearly seen, especially at close range. Invisalign clear aligners, on the other hand, are transparent. They look a lot like a retainer and, most people won’t notice them- even at close range.

Shorter Treatment Times/Plans

The average treatment time for traditional metal braces is 12 to 24 months- and patients with complex malocclusions may require up to 36 months. On the other hand, the average treatment time with Invisalign is 12 to 18 months. Treatment time for patients with more complex malocclusions may extend up to 24 months, but those with mild malocclusion may only need 6 months. The good news is, most patients start seeing results with their first set of aligners.

No Damage to Tooth Enamel

Traditional metal braces require metal brackets to be cemented to your teeth for the wire to attach to. These brackets can cause significant damage to your tooth enamel. If you have your teeth whitened during your treatment, you will have little spots on your teeth when the brackets are removed.
On the other hand, most patients who undergo Invisalign treatment do not require any additional work to be done, which means tooth enamel will not be damaged.

Safe for All Ages

Invisalign clear aligners are safe for all ages- from children to adults. There are no bracketsor wires to worry about and the aligners are made with medical-grade plastic.

Fewer Office Visits

Traditional metal braces require visits to the office every few weeks to have adjustments made to them as your teeth shift. However, you will be given your full set of aligners at the beginning of your treatment and instructed to change them out every 1 to 3weeks based on your treatment plan. You will need to schedule check-ups approximately every 6 weeks to monitor your progress.

How does Invisalign work?

Here is what patients can expect with Invisalign treatment:


The process starts with an initial consultation visit. At this time, Dr. Tyagi will evaluate your current condition and take images to determine your candidacy for Invisalign treatment. We will also create a digital rendering of your expected results to help you decide if you want to proceed with treatment.
We will send all of the information collected during the consultation to the lab for the fabrication of your aligners. When the aligners are returned to the office, we will schedule an appointment for you to come in so that we can fit your first set and give you the rest of your aligners. You will be instructed to change them out every 1 to 3 weeks based on your treatment plan. You can expect to feel some minor discomfort when the aligners are first placed and each time you change them out as your mouth gets used to having them in.
You should be wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. If you do not wear them as instructed, treatment will take longer and may not be effective at all.


Recovery is fairly easy with Invisalign clear aligners. Most patients don’t have any issues at all, and those that do only experience mild discomfort when the aligners are first placed and when they switch to a new set. This can easily be controlled with OTC pain relievers.


At the end of treatment, you will be given a retainer, which should be worn for most of the day like the aligners. This will help keep the teeth in their new position. We will gradually decrease your time wearing the retainer until you only need it at night while you are sleeping.

What Issues Can Invisalign Treat?

Invisalign is designed to treat a wide variety of mild to moderate malocclusions, or misaligned teeth. When paired with Invisalign attachments, it can also be an effective option for more complex cases. Some of the most common issues treated by Invisalign include:

Crowded teeth

Crowded teeth is a condition in which there is not enough room in the jaw to allow teeth to grow in straight.


An underbite is a condition in which the lower teeth protrude over the upper teeth.


Overbite is the opposite of underbite- the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth.

Open bite

Open bite is a condition in which the upper and lower teeth do not touch when the mouth is closed.

Gapped teeth

Gapped teeth is a condition in which there is a gap between the teeth. This condition typically affects the top front teeth and can range in severity.


Crossbite is a condition in which some of the upper teeth overlap the top and vice-versa.
