Invisalign® VS Braces

Should I get Invisalign or Braces?

Both Invisalign and braces were created to straighten teeth while improving your smile and oral health. They were designed to align with your teeth to shift everything into the right place.


Both effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. But if we will compare them in detail, we see differences.
