Traditional Braces vs. Invisalign Aligners

happy girl thinking about something

If you or your teen are considering orthodontic treatment, you may be wondering whether traditional braces or Invisalign aligners is best. At William R. Kincer, DMD Orthodontics in Marietta, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign treatment to meet the unique needs and preferences of each patient. Here are some factors to consider when choosing between the two:

  • Age of the Patient – Traditional braces are typically recommended for children and any older patients who may struggle to keep up with removable appliances. However, adults can also benefit from traditional braces if they have more severe orthodontic issues. Invisalign aligners are generally recommended for older teens and adults who have mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
  • Affect on Diet and Oral Hygiene – Traditional braces require special care and dietary restrictions to prevent damage to the braces or wires. Patients must avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods that can damage the brackets and wires. Oral hygiene is also more time-consuming with traditional braces, as the brackets and wires can trap food particles and make it slightly more challenging to brush and floss effectively. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are removable and do not require any dietary restrictions. Patients can brush and floss as they normally would and clean their aligners with a special cleaning solution.
  • Personal Preferences – Some patients prefer the discreet appearance of Invisalign aligners, while others prefer the more traditional look of metal braces and colorful bands.

  • 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.
