People suffering from crooked or misaligned teeth can benefit from Invisalign braces. Invisalign is an effective method of straightening teeth compared to the traditional braces which are highly visible.

Braces ensure that teeth are gradually forced into their intended positions for a straight smile. The process will take some time and hence the need for clear or invisible braces when straightening misaligned teeth. Dr. David Craig & Associates recommend Invisalign braces as an ideal choice for straightening teeth due to the following benefits.

Clear and Invisible

The Invisalign braces do not make use of metal wires and brackets which are visible and make people stay away from the use of traditional braces for treatment. Invisalign is suited for both adults and teenagers who shy away from wearing the traditional braces and affect their smiles. People will not notice Invisalign braces since they are clear and invisible.

Greater Comfort

Invisalign braces are highly comfortable compared to the metal braces. The braces can be removed for purposes such as eating and brushing teeth and at times when you feel like taking a break. Metal braces cannot be taken off since they are affixed to your teeth by an orthodontist.

Shorter Treatment Time

Getting Invisalign braces will ensure that you get high-quality results over a shorter treatment duration compared to metal braces. Treatment duration with metal braces is longer and associated with discomfort. Straightening of teeth usually takes between anything from one year to one and a half years.

Use of Technology

The use of technology to diagnose the extent of misalignment and to specially create braces for your case increases the success rate of treatment. A set of Invisalign braces are accurately designed and made for each patient and are used over the duration of treatment. Regular visits are scheduled at which time your dentist will provide a new set of braces as treatment progresses.


Invisalign are safe, unlike the metal brace which may have sharp edges that injure your gums and other parts of the mouth. Injuries in the mouth may make you prone to severe infections and great discomfort.
