We're proud to be a leading orthodontist serving the Muscle Shoals, AL area, and we work closely with our patients to customize treatment and make it fit into any lifestyle. But one of the biggest decisions you'll need to make when starting orthodontic treatment is which method you'll go with, and for most patients, that comes down to one central question: braces or Invisalign?

Braces and Invisalign: The Pros & Cons

Traditional metal braces are still the most popular treatment we offer, and for good reason. Braces are the most reliable, cost-effective orthodontic treatment on the market, and metal braces are powerful enough to treat almost any orthodontic condition. Modern braces are also far lighter, more comfortable, and more aesthetically pleasing than those of the past, making them a convenient option.

Invisalign, however, comes with some distinct advantages. Because Invisalign aligners are see-through and lay flat against the teeth, they're nearly impossible to see when worn. This means Invisalign won't show up in photos, and you won't have to worry about metal wires and brackets during big social or professional events. You also remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, which means you can still enjoy your favorite foods and oral hygiene is as easy as ever.
