I am an Invisalign patient and would like to let people know why Invisallign is such a great product. Also I want to recommend that if you have any concern about getting an un-biased view of what Invisalign is all about check out the Wikipedia article which will give you a very clear picture of the process.
Below is my opinion, after having worn both regular braces and invisalign braces.
Six Good Reasons That Invisalign is Worthwhile
Reason #1: If you research well and find a good provider, Invisalign can be delivered for close to the cost of regular braces.
Reason#2: The obvious one- Invisalign is invisible. I wore Invisalign retainers for many months and often my wife would ask me if I had my retainers in because she could not tell just by looking.
Reason#3: The Invisalign retainers are removable. I loved the fact that if I was driving down the road and needed to stop for a snack I could pop my retainers out in a second, eat and then put them back in again.
Reason#4: Having clear plastic retainers in your mouth is like having a mouth guard. So for those of us who are occasionally putting their mouth on the line, Invisalign is great because it works as a protector as well.
Reason#5: Invisalign works. And if you have a really great orthodontist, you can address pretty much any issue that steel braces would address. They do straighten your teeth.
Reason #6: Invisalign uses a smooth clear plastic. So they are really comfortable. I had metal braces when I was younger and they were uncomfortable and if something bumped your mouth the braces would cut into your checks.
I think those things are worth paying the little bit more. And as I mentioned, if you check around and find the most competitive price the difference is not that much with regular braces.
