The cost of conventional orthodontic appliances is often similar to that of Invisalign clear braces. On average, Invisalign is comparable to the cost of traditional braces, but may be slightly more expensive due to the laboratory costs associated with creating the aligners. Invisalign utilizes SmartTrack, a special plastic that adds strength to the overall teeth structure, while braces move each tooth individually. The main advantage of Invisalign is that it is less noticeable than metal braces and can be removed for cleaning and other activities.
Maintaining good dental hygiene while wearing Invisalign clear braces is essential for successful treatment. This includes brushing and flossing your teeth daily, keeping your aligners free of food and debris, and visiting the dentist for regular cleaning and checkups.
