The benefits of Invisalign over fixed braces are these:
-Ability to remove Invisalign trays to clean teeth and gums, which means oral hygiene is easier with Invisalign compared to fixed braces
-Invisalign looks more ‘invisible’ compared to even ceramic fixed braces
-Invisalign causes less ulcers (patients still get some but maybe less than fixed braces)
-During ‘important’ events such as presentations etc, you can remove the Invisalign trays (but bear in mind it only works well if you follow the 24/7 rule for Invisalign)
Please do take note that not all cases are suitable for Invisalign and I do agree that in some patients, using fixed braces may produce a better result. However with advances in Invisalign technology, it is now rather sophisticated and can produce extremely good outcomes. I guess the most important thing is to ensure that whoever is treating you can diagnose and examine your case thoroughly and weigh out the pros and cons of Invisalign and fixed braces with you.
On a side note, please don’t be put off by age and braces. In fact, orthodontics is not age specific, and as long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you can achieve a nicer smile too.
Hope that helps! Good luck.
