Invisalign vs Braces | Dentist in Ellerslie

Invisalign aligners got their name when they combined invisible, with aligners. Thus the name Invisalign. The beautiful thing about Invisalign is that it is “invisible”. As opposed to braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible to people that you’re speaking with.

When you visit our dentist in Ellerslie, Dr. Peter, you will see that Invisalign is a great option for straightening your crooked teeth. You may want to provide more room for your teeth because they are crowded, or you may want to reduce the amount of space between your teeth.

Invisalign was limited to the people who they could help when they first started. But now Invisalign is a very common alternative to braces. There are very few patients that can’t be helped using Invisalign and have to use traditional braces.

Invisalign is great for teens as well as adults. As long as you have your adult teeth, you can take advantage of Invisalign’s amazing properties.

One of the advantages of Invisalign is that they are removable. As opposed to braces which are not removable. Being removable takes it much easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene habits. You can remove your aligners when you eat and then brush your teeth and floss as usual.

You should always brush your aligners with clean water and a soft bristle brush to clean off any plaque or other materials that might have remained on your aligners after wearing them for a while. Come to the dentist in Ellerslie to see if Invisalign is right for you.


Another great advantage to Invisalign over braces is that they are less painful. Invisalign moves your teeth very slowly over a long period of time. Every set of trays moves your teeth in small increments causing less trauma to the tooth and to the jaw bone. This makes less pain, and allows your teeth to move into their new position more naturally.

Braces however, sometimes can be very painful when there’s new wires put on and they are pulling on the teeth more aggressively. You can have pain for several days in addition to getting cuts to your lips and tongue because of the brackets on the braces and the wires.

One of the other benefits of Invisalign is the cost. In a lot of cases Invisalign is much more cost effective for patients. Come in for a free consultation with Dr. Yoo to get a quotation on Invisalign for you.

Invisalign costs at the tooth doctor start at $6500. There are affordable payment plans for people who don’t have insurance coverage, or if you have limited insurance coverage.

One other advantage of having Invisalign is that you don’t have to come into the office necessarily to put in your new set of trays. If you are on vacation, and you have your trays with you, you can send pictures to the doctor and see if you are ready for your new set of trays or not.

When you have braces, you have to go into the orthodontist to get the wires put in place and tightened.

Invisalign is designed to be invisible. This means you don’t have railroad tracks across your teeth making it uncomfortable to smile and eat food. There are certain foods that you cannot eat with braces. For instance, you can’t chew gum, eat spaghetti very well, or popcorn.

With Invisalign there are no foods that are off the table for you. Because your aligners are removable, you can eat food as you normally would, and you can also brush and floss your teeth with ease.

Because Invisalign is noninvasive, and it moves your teeth at a slower more controlled rate, there is less pain involved with Invisalign as opposed to braces.
