Why try Invisalign® before braces?

Today our BC orthodontists share why straightening your smile with Invisalign® is so easy that you will want to try Invisalign before turning to traditional metal braces to straighten your teeth. 

About Invisalign

Invisalign orthodontic treatment consists of a series of clear custom aligners that are almost invisible when worn.

Invisalign's series of custom aligners is easy to use and comfortable to wear. Invisalign will allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly, without that hassle of brackets or wires that comes along with braces.

Your Invisalign treatment plan maps out your orthodontic treatment step by step. To straighten your teeth with Invisalign all you need to do is wear each set of aligners for about two weeks (as per your treatment plan), then move on to the next set of aligners in your series until your teeth reach their desired positions.

Invisalign vs Braces

When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners have a number of benefits.

Invisalign for Different Stages

Invisalign offers orthodontic aligners specially designed for each stage of dental development; adults, teens and children. Invisalign, Invisalign for Teens, and Invisalign First for children are all designed to specifically address the unique needs of each age group. 


Invisalign aligners are created from a thin clear plastic and are custom made to fit your unique smile. For patients who are concerned about the aesthetic of traditional metal braces, Invisalign's clear plastic aligners are barely noticeable to others when worn, making Invisalign the discreet way to straighten your teeth. 


Don't want to give up popcorn on movie night, or any other favourite foods? You don't have to with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable. Just remove your aligners and store them in their handy container while you eat then simply brush and floss your teeth, rinse your aligners under water and return them to your mouth. Unlike traditional metal braces, there's no need to change your diet to straighten your teeth with Invisalign.


When you straighten your teeth with braces you will need to attend frequent adjustment appointments, but with Invisalign there are no adjustments required! Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners don't require adjustments. With Invisalign orthodontic treatment you will only need to visit your BC orthodontist for checkups and progress reviews about once every six weeks throughout your orthodontic treatment.
