What's the difference between Invisalign and clear braces?

Clear braces is a pretty broad term that covers ways of straightening teeth without the typical appearance of metal train track style attachments bonded on to the teeth.

There are two basic sorts of clear braces:

  • Tooth coloured attachments bonded directly to the teeth - these are like regular fixed braces, but more discreet as they are made of ceramic/glass-like material
  • Clear aligners like Invisalign. There are other varieties and brand names of clear aligners, but Invisalign is so far ahead of the rest, most people only know it.
