For anyone who has recently looked for orthodontic treatments must be familiar with this question. It is definitely a question we get all the time and with all the information available on the internet, people are still confused about why this new treatment should be preferred over the conventional ones. 

So let the professionals of Dentalign help you with your dilemma.

One of the main factors which cause this confusion is that most people tend to believe that conventional aligners have a much higher success rate than invisible aligners just because they are made with metal.

Today in this article we will give you a complete analysis and why Dentalign’s invisible aligners are much better than conventional ones.

For those who are not familiar, invisible aligners is a modern treatment option to get your teeth straighten. They are made with clear thermoplastic material that is meant to be worn for a specific time per day according to your treatment. There are several reasons why invisible aligners are preferred over the conventional ones and why they are getting popular day by day.

To Begin with,

They are invisible

The main advantage of invisible aligners over traditional ones is that they are simply invisible. Made with clear thermoplastic, they are more acceptable by our patients as they don’t have to walk around with metallic braces - the main reason why most patients shy away from an orthodontic treatment.

Most people love to have a straight smile but they are just insecure about their smile with braces, an issue that is solved by invisible aligners. With invisible aligners, there’s a clear improvement in the patient's confidence level during treatment. People are more willing to opt for the treatment, as they have more acceptance of their misaligned teeth and coming out in social gatherings during treatment.


Another perk of having invisible aligners is that you are not stuck with them 24/7. Yes, some of the invisible aligners are recommended for 22 hours but in case of emergency or when you are eating, you can remove them and later put them on your own. 

This is a big advantage over the conventional ones as it allows you to have more freedom of when you want to wear them. For those who have a sense of insecurity, can remove them whenever they want.

Better oral Hygiene

With aligners, you can easily take care of your oral hygiene. It is much easier to brush and floss with aligners than with metallic braces.

Metallic braces also have more room for debris and plaque to accumulate than aligners. This can cause serious damage to your oral health and even periodontal tissues.

Cleaning Aligners

Not only your teeth, but it is also much easier to clean your clear aligners compared to conventional braces. Braces have lots of debris stuck in them and the only reason you cannot get them properly cleaned is because you cannot remove them. Fortunately, this is not the case with clear aligners. With a clear aligner, you can remove them and clean them in lukewarm water. This will not have any negative impact on your aligners and you can enjoy fresh clean aligners every time.


For foodies, this one is the deal-breaker. With aligners, your diet is not much affected. You can still eat whatever you want by just remove your aligners before eating. With metal braces, on the other hand, your diet needs to be adjusted. You have to be sensitive around braces, because a slight problem can cost you another visit to your dentist and additional costs.

Period of Treatment

In a recent study published by The Angle Orthodontist, the average time for aligners treatment is less than braces. Most patients want to get their treatment done as soon as possible so they can walk free again without any braces or aligners on them. With aligners, your average treatment will take around 6 months, depending on the severity of your treatment.
