Why Is Invisalign Better Than Traditional Braces?

 In Invisalign Treatment

If you are looking to straighten your smile, you may have expected to use traditional braces. However, many patients are Lakeview Dental Arts in Chicago, Illinois are aligning their healthy, beautiful smiles with Invisalign versus traditional braces. Although, why is Invisalign better? Here are a few reasons the Lakeview Dental Arts team prefers Invisalign for its Chicago community residents.

Fewer Restrictions

With traditional braces, you may experience a number of food restrictions like avoiding sticky or crunchy foods. This is because these materials easily get stuck in-between the brackets of traditional braces. If they are not removed right away, they will begin to break-down the outer protective layer of your tooth, called enamel, leading to tooth decay. For this reason, it is common that people who eat crunchy or sticky food with traditional braces also develop a few cavities during the process. With Invisalign liners, you can remove the aligners when you eat and brush; therefore, keeping your teeth cleaner while eating what you want!F

Faster and Fewer Office Visits

To begin your Invisalign journey, you will receive a full set of trays, to align your teeth. Every two weeks you will move onto the next set of trays. This system leads to fewer adjusting appointments and quicker treatment time. Meaning, you can finish your treatment in 12 to 18 months!



Traditional wire braces are designed to put a great amount of pressure on your teeth to force them into place. In contrast, Invisalign gently moves the teeth through a series of trays instead of increasing pressure. This ultimately leads to a more comfortable aligning experience. Further, Invisalign trays are made with a soft plastic designed for comfort, while traditional braces are made with hard wires that can tear mouth tissue.

Beautiful Esthetic

During a traditional braces aligning process, you may have to wait multiple years until you can see the beautiful finished product. With Invisalign, this is not a problem, because the aligners are clear. Throughout the whole process, you can show off your changing smile.

Invisalign is not just a set of trays, it is an entire technology system designed to help patients reach their goals.
