The short answer: yes!
To explain why it’s important to note that both orthodontic treatments are tools in the hands of your orthodontist. Whatever treatment you choose, make sure you select an experienced, licensed orthodontist who will safely guide your teeth into their correct positions. Even the best tools only work in the hands of the best professionals! You should be aware of the dangers of seeking orthodontic treatment without supervision by a licensed doctor.
If your orthodontist examines your teeth in the office and determines you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, then yes, you can expect the same effective, lifelong results as braces, with a beautiful, healthy smile and straight teeth!
Everyone’s teeth are different, which means diagnoses are different too: in certain cases, your orthodontist may not recommend Invisalign aligners for your treatment or may recommend supplemental treatment before or after you use Invisalign aligners – such as braces – to ensure the most effective results.
It is also important to choose an effective brand of clear aligners. While Diamond Braces exclusively partners with the Invisalign system, other companies – especially mail-order aligner companies – treat your teeth with off-brand plastic aligners. Invisalign is the first clear aligner brand and still leads the industry with the most effective aligners.
Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack™ material, specifically designed for orthodontic treatment and exclusively patented for Invisalign aligners. They also offer patented SmartForce™ attachments, which are designed exclusively to assist tooth movement with Invisalign aligners.
After decades of dedicated research and millions of dollars in development, Invisalign products are simply the best in the business, achieving the most effective results, and providing you with a healthy, lifelong smile!
