Braces vs. Invisalign: Which is Best?

Orthodontic Appointment Marietta GA

Investing in orthodontic treatment has a host of benefits, ranging from improved self-confidence to a lower risk of tooth decay and TMJ disorder. But with so many modern types of braces available, how can you choose the system that’s best for your needs?

Conventional Braces for All Needs

Traditional orthodontic systems use brackets and archwires to predictably align teeth. They can be used on everyone from young children to mature adults. Best of all, conventional braces can treat everything from minor tooth misalignment to more severe malocclusion cases in a predictable manner.

Invisalign Removable Aligners

Removable alignment systems like Invisalign are preferable for adults and teens who want a low-profile alternative to traditional braces. However, a heavy dose of dedication is required, being that you need to wear the aligners for a specific time each day and change them out as directed. Invisalign may not work well for an active teen who has trouble keeping up with a lot of extras. But adults with minor to moderate tooth misalignment tend to make ideal Invisalign candidates.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
