Braces and Invisalign®

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign® offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. These clear, removable aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, gently moving them into alignment. Invisalign® is ideal for adults and teenagers looking for a less noticeable orthodontic treatment.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces have been the cornerstone of orthodontics for decades. Utilizing metal brackets and wires, braces apply consistent pressure to teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position. Ideal for correcting complex bite and alignment issues, braces offer a reliable solution for patients of all ages. Our dentists create personalized treatment plans to achieve optimal results. Braces are a time-tested method, perfect for achieving long-lasting results.

Need Help?


The best way to determine if you need braces or Invisalign is through a consultation with one of our dentists at Yu Smiles Dental. We’ll assess your dental alignment, discuss your aesthetic and functional goals, and recommend the most suitable treatment option based on your unique needs.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the individual case. Traditional braces typically take anywhere from 8 to 24 months, while Invisalign treatment can range from 10 to 18 months. Invisalign appears to have a shorter correction period compared to traditional braces, but this is actually because Invisalign can address less severe cases and is typically suited for simpler scenarios. Treatment times can vary based on the complexity of the dental issues and how well treatment recommendations are followed.

Both braces and Invisalign are designed to fit into your lifestyle with minimal disruption. Braces may require some dietary adjustments to avoid damaging the brackets or wires. Invisalign aligners are removable, which allows for easier eating and cleaning, but they should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results.

At Yu Smiles Dental, we believe everyone deserves access to quality orthodontic care. We offer a range of flexible payment plans and options to fit your budget, ensuring that your treatment is affordable.

Invisalign can be as effective as traditional braces for many orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, and limited bite problems. The effectiveness of Invisalign depends on the complexity of the case and patient compliance with wearing the aligners as recommended. Generally, Invisalign is more suitable for simpler cases with minimal skeletal issues.

Good oral hygiene is crucial during orthodontic treatment. For braces, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss threaders to clean around brackets and wires. For Invisalign, brush and rinse your aligners and teeth regularly, especially after meals.

After completing your orthodontic treatment, you will likely need to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile. The type and duration of retainer wear will vary based on your individual case, but it’s crucial for preventing your teeth from shifting back to their original positions.

Absolutely! Orthodontic treatment is effective for patients of all ages, including adults. Many adults choose Invisalign for its discreet appearance, but braces are also an option for correcting more complex dental issues.
Orthodontic treatment not only enhances your smile and creates a more balanced bite, but it can also alleviate symptoms associated with oral facial pain. Additionally, in some instances, orthodontic intervention is essential primarily for creating the necessary space for implant placement.
