The Clear Advantages of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

Woman choosing between Invisalign and braces. Recent surveys show that for many people, a person’s smile is what stands out the most about them during a first impression. In fact, smiling can make you look younger, more successful, and even more trustworthy! However, you might find making good first impressions difficult if you’re embarrassed by your crooked teeth. Metal braces are a traditional way to straighten your smile, but many people find them cumbersome and uncomfortable. If you want straighter teeth but don’t want traditional braces to get in the way of your personal or professional life, Invisalign in Melbourne is here to help! Here are the top three advantages Invisalign can offer that traditional braces can’t.

Invisible Appearance

With clear braces in Melbourne, you’re free to smile as you get straighter teeth! Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, and many people won’t even notice you’re wearing them as you go about your day to day life. These clear aligners will blend into your lifestyle with no awkward restrictions required. Whether you’re giving a school presentation, going on a first date, or preparing for a job interview, you won’t have to worry about a distracting mouthful of metal.


Unlike traditional braces, you don’t have to limit what you eat with Invisalign. Some foods can easily get stuck in or break metal wires and brackets, but using removable aligners mean that you can eat or drink whatever you like! Just take out your aligners before eating, enjoy your food, give your mouth a quick brush, then pop them back in. They won’t trap plaque or bacteria as easily either, which means fewer cavities and a lower risk of gum irritation.

Saves You Time

3D imaging is used to create your entire series of aligners, from your first to your last. Every two weeks at your orthodontist’s or dentist’s direction, you’ll start using your next set of alignment trays. Being in charge of most of your own adjustments means less time in the office and more time for yourself. This detailed planning also allows every step towards straighter teeth to be highly personalized, creating maximum efficiency. In many cases, Invisalign can give you a straightened smile in half the time traditional braces could.
