Braces Vs Invisalign

At Carvalho and Roth Orthodontics, we specialize in creating beautiful smiles for patients of all ages in our warm and welcoming office. Dr. Roberto Carvalho and Dr. Menachem Roth offer expert services including Newton Centre braces, AcceleDent, Invisalign, and much more. If you’ve been dreaming of straighter teeth, now is the perfect time to start. With the amount of treatment options available today, you can choose the one that fits your needs, budget, and lifestyle. Let’s take a look at two popular treatments: braces and Invisalign.

Newton Centre Braces

Traditional braces are the most popular and well-known orthodontic treatment, and it’s because they’ve been creating perfectly straight smiles for many years! However, thanks to new advances in orthodontics, today’s modern braces are smaller, thinner, and more comfortable than ever. Newton Centre braces are strong and durable, making them very effective. They offer perfect results every time, and their reliability and affordability make them a great option for any patient. As your Newton Centre orthodontist, we offer several types of braces for our patients to choose from.


Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear aligners designed to move your teeth into their proper positions. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. After you’ve finished wearing your last set, your smile will be brand new perfectly aligned. Benefits of Lawrence Invisalign include:

  • Completely removable aligners
  • Better oral hygiene
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Discreet appearance
  • Less visits to your Newton Centre orthodontist for adjustments

Invisalign is an excellent option for patients who wish to avoid the discomfort and appearance of braces. Ideally, it is better suited to individuals who are disciplined and can commit to wearing the aligners for 22 hours per day and keep them properly cleaned. Invisalign is not recommended for those involved in vigorous activities, such as contact sports.

Key Differences

While both Invisalign and braces both provide stunning results, there are some key differences between the two. These include:

  • Braces often have faster treatment times
  • Invisalign can be more comfortable than braces
  • Braces work for all kinds of orthodontic cases, while Invisalign may not be recommended for those with complex or severe issues
  • Invisalign is often a more expensive treatment
  • Unlike braces, there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign
  • Invisalign requires more self-discipline for treatment to progress
