Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics
Traditional Metal Braces
Probably what you imagine when you hear the term "braces," traditional orthodontics uses metal brackets, bands, and wires to straighten the teeth. These appliances are visible, but they can address a wide range of mild to severe orthodontic problems.
Clear Aligner Therapy with Invisalign
The Invisalign system also straightens teeth over time. But instead of using metal components, your Scottsdale, AZ, dentist uses clear, thermoplastic removable aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately one week before upgrading to the next set.

What Common Conditions Can Invisalign Address?
One of the best things about Invisalign is that it can treat many of the same orthodontic conditions as traditional braces. Clear aligners can correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded or overlapped teeth
- Gaps or spaces
- Rotated teeth
- Open bites
But Is Invisalign Right for Me? Candidates for Invisalign
During your initial appointment, we can discuss similar cases and show you before and after photos. We'll also discuss your concerns, goals, and health history. Aligner therapy may be right for you if you have:
Good Oral Health
Before moving the teeth, we must ensure that you do not have extensive tooth decay, gum disease, or other serious problems.
Mild to Moderate Misalignment
While clear aligners can correct the majority of orthodontic problems, complex cases may require traditional orthodontics.
A Commitment to Treatment
To be effective, aligners must be worn a minimum of 22 hours every day. They should only be removed to brush, floss, eat, and drink.
Typical Invisalign Treatment Timeline
Treatment can often be completed in as little as 12 months.
