If you have not heard of Invisalign clear braces by now, then it is very likely that you don’t need braces. If you do, then you probably already know that adults and teens can use these clear trays to adjust their teeth instead of metal wires that can be uncomfortable and unattractive. These Invisalign facts address the most common questions we hear about clear braces in Washington DC.
Are Invisalign Braces Faster?
This rumor is true. Invisalign braces do take less time than traditional metal braces to realign your teeth. Invisalign can take months or even a year off the time it takes to adjust a smile. And during the adjustment period, clear braces require fewer visits to the cosmetic dentist, and fewer adjustments, so the time is not spent at the dentist’s office.

Are Invisalign Braces More Expensive?
This rumor is false, though it looks true at first. Metal braces may seem more affordable at first, but you will be paying for all those extra dental visits for months or years longer, making them far more expensive. Invisalign braces are just about the same price or a little bit more affordable for most patients once you factor in the shorter period.
Does Your Life Change with Invisalign?
You do not have to worry about how you’ll take care of your braces, or what shape your teeth will be in after the braces come off, because with Invisalign, you remove the tray to eat and perform oral hygiene.
