Fixed metal braces and Invisalign treatment both carry many different benefits and one may suit one patient and not another. Here, we outline the differences and advantages of each treatment.


Firstly, what is Invisalign? A set of custom made clear, removable aligners used to straighten your teeth. These are specially made in a dental laboratory as they are a bespoke fit for your teeth’s structure and shape. Invisalign places responsibility and control into the patient’s hands, as they need to be routinely replaced every 2 weeks in order to yield successful results.
