Invisalign VS. Braces

Marietta GA Clear Dental Aligners

To improve the appearance and position of teeth, while promoting their proper function, orthodontic specialists utilize a number of tools and techniques that are customized for each individual. Among the many advancements in the arena of orthodontics is Invisalign, a distinct method of straightening teeth using computer-generated clear aligner trays. With treatment that is virtually invisible, it’s easy to see why Invisalign is appealing to patients of all ages. Yet, traditional metal braces remain a tried and true orthodontic treatment and are beneficial for even the most complex cases. Thus, which is better, Invisalign or braces? Ultimately, orthodontic treatment hinges on a patient’s specific needs and which method will effectively meet those needs.

Generally speaking, Invisalign is a suitable and efficient orthodontic treatment for tooth movements that are not very complicated. Treatable cases may include those with crowded or gapped teeth, as well as those with mild to moderate overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite. From an aesthetic perspective, Invisalign allows for discrete teeth straightening and very little interference with one’s lifestyle, which is exciting for teens and adults that do not want others to know that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. What’s more is that the clear aligners are removable, making eating, speaking and cleaning teeth easier.

On the other hand, traditional braces are incredibly functional and highly effective for correcting complex orthodontic cases. Though they cannot be removed like Invisalign trays, they are expected to work faster in correcting gaps and aligning teeth. Additionally, braces are now comprised of clear and ceramic materials, providing more options for patients.

In either case, orthodontic treatments using Invisalign or traditional braces do more than straighten teeth. By correcting bite issues and improving the overall function of teeth, they remain an investment in a patient’s oral health for years to come.

  • 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.
