Invisalign or Braces: What’s the Difference?

by | Feb 18, 2022 | Braces, Invisalign, Treatment Options

Due to advances in technology, we now have a choice of how we want to move our teeth! This is a GOOD thing and should not cause you stress. Let’s go over the pros and cons of each.



  • Color choices for your upcoming special event
  • Braces are bonded to the teeth so there’s less responsibility


  • Need to avoid certain foods so braces don’t break (mainly hard, sticky, chewy foods)
  • More trips to the office if a braces breaks
  • Harder to keep clean



  • Aesthetic, most people don’t even know you’re wearing them
  • Removable, you can eat whatever you want!
  • Easier to keep clean (especially for busy teenagers)
  • Protects the teeth at night for patients who grind their teeth


  • Not the right choice for certain challenging cases such as impacted teeth
  • No option for colors. Aligners are clear
