Optimal Comfort & Reliable Results
For years, traditional metal braces have been the baseline treatment for patients with misaligned teeth. While effective, they have a reputation for being uncomfortable, unattractive, and inconvenient — and it’s all thanks to metal wires and brackets. Fortunately, there’s a better alternative to metal braces that captures the same results without having the disadvantages that come with this outdated treatment option.
Thanks to Invisalign®, Dr. Assi can help gradually straighten your teeth in just half the time with clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your smile. Learn more about the advantages that Invisalign offers over traditional braces.
Feel Confident During Treatment
Patients who wear metal braces struggle with their overall confidence as well as having something that’s permanently attached to their teeth. The wires, brackets, and rubber bands that make up metal braces can also irritate your gums as well as potentially cut your lips, tongue, or cheeks. That’s why it can be difficult finding a solution that can straighten your teeth without having to be so invasive in the process.
Invisalign aligners not only come with extra comfort and ease, but there are no brackets or wires due to the fact that these aligners are invisible to others. Our clear aligners are made from transparent, flexible SmartTrack® material that’s custom-fitted to the natural groves of your teeth, guaranteeing them to be more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
Simple Care & Maintenance
Since metal braces can’t be removed by anyone other than a dentist, patients can find it challenging to keep them clean. Pieces of food can get stuck in the brackets and wires, making them tricky to remove with just a toothbrush. Special tools may also need to be bought to keep their braces from accumulating too much plaque on their teeth.
Caring for Invisalign aligners, however, is incredibly easy. Whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth, you’ll simply remove them and continue with your normal routine. While the aligners themselves need cleaning, you can gently brush them for the desired effect. Invisalign also makes your nighttime routine easier, less time consuming, and overall less stressful compared to traditional metal braces.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
Treating your smile with traditional metal braces requires you to give up some of your favorite foods. This could include foods that are sticky, hard, or can get stuck and even potentially damage your braces. Your dentist could also recommend avoiding certain foods such as nuts, popcorn, gums, and steak.
With Invisalign, all you have to do to enjoy your favorite meal is simply remove the aligners. Since removing your aligners is a requirement to ensure that you don’t damage them or get any food stuck, you’ll only have to brush and floss your teeth before putting them back on.

Is Invisalign® or metal braces better for adults?
