Invisalign vs Metal Braces

In the past, metal braces were the best treatment for straightening teeth. Today, Invisalign® – the ground-breaking orthodontics technology – offers a wealth of advantages when compared with traditional metal and wire braces.

  • Dr. Kurtz provides the best possible service to ensure his customers get the best smile. The whole process for the Invisalign treatment from start to finish has been a very pleasant experience as the staff works diligently. They were even helpful after the treatment as I had concerns regarding my retainers.

  • Visited a few times and each time the service was immaculate. Friendly group of people who explains your procedures step by step on each visit. Short wait times with a lot of visuals of your progress. Would definitely recommend.

  • I went in for a consultation and met the assistant, Shelly within a few minutes of arriving. She was very pleasant and ran some scans of my teeth and very shortly afterwards, the Dr Kurtz came in to discuss my situation. He was very professional and provided all the information I needed. I was very pleased with the entire experience.

THE INVISALIGN® PROCESS

Almost Invisible

As the name implies, Invisalign® is transparent as it is made from durable medical-grade plastic, and thus it is not nearly as noticeable as metal braces. Most patients, especially adults, prefer not to have metal tracks in their mouth. That is why we custom-fit a series of clear aligners to reposition your teeth, which are molded to gradually straighten your teeth into a beautiful smile
Improved Oral Hygiene

Unlike metal braces, in which food is prone to become trapped, Invisalign® is not comprised of any heavy hardware. The custom-molded aligners are removable and simplify oral hygiene. Invisalign® offers straighter teeth while it prevents periodontal disease, eliminates plaque buildup; and reduces tooth decay
Prevention of Additional Dental Problems

There is no need to worry about triggering other dental problems. Metal braces have a reputation for intensifying TMJ, and promoting other chewing difficulties and speech impediments. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign® technology, on the other hand, does not lead to any complications.
No Food Restrictions

With traditional orthodontics, certain foods are restricted while the Invisalign® technology allows you to eat whatever you please. As such, the Invisalign® technology does not disrupt your life in any way.
Comfortable and Secure

Compared to other types of braces, the underlying benefit of Invisalign® is the comfort level. Completely free of wires, rubber bands and metal, patients experience significantly less mouth irritation and require fewer adjustments or dental appointments.
3-D computer technology

In addition, our 3-D computer technology allows you to actually see how your teeth will look after the treatment is complete!
