Invisible Braces FAQs

Do invisible braces work?

Yes! Although invisible braces may not be the optimal solution for complex dental concerns, they are a fully effective treatment for most simple to moderate dental concerns. In many cases, they are the preferred treatment option due to their convenience and cosmetic appearance.

Is Invisalign faster than braces?

Yes, in many cases, Invisalign can work faster than braces. This is because Invisalign involves custom-shaped aligners for the teeth, which can be swapped out on a frequent basis without a visit to the orthodontist. Therefore, Invisalign patients can progress through their treatment faster, while patients with braces must wait on a visit to their orthodontist.

Is Invisalign bad for teeth?

Like any braces treatment, Invisalign can be bad for the teeth if patients fail to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits. However, since Invisalign can be removed for brushing and flossing, many patients have an easier time keeping the teeth healthy and clean compared to traditional braces. Outside of hygienic concerns, Invisalign is not bad for the teeth.

Which invisible braces are best?

Selecting the best invisible braces treatment will require a consult with the team at University Centre Dental Associates. The answer to this question will be different for each patient. During your visit, we’ll assess your teeth and treatment goals to identify the best invisible braces treatment for you among our many treatment options.

How long do invisible braces take?

On average, invisible braces take about 12 months. However, keep in mind that this timeline can vary depending on the severity of the dental issue. Some patients may have a treatment that requires more or less time.
