Invisalign vs Fixed Braces: Which is Right for You?

At Glow Dental we believe Orthodontic treatment is a crucial aspect of maintaining good oral health and a confident smile. When it comes to choosing the right orthodontic treatment, patients have a number of options, including traditional fixed braces and clear aligners like Invisalign. Here’s a comparison of Invisalign vs fixed braces to help you determine which is right for you.

Fixed Braces

  • Pros: Fixed braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment that have been used for decades. They are highly effective at correcting a wide range of orthodontic problems, including overcrowding, spacing, and misaligned bites.
  • Cons: Fixed braces are noticeable, and patients must wear them for the duration of treatment, which can last several years. They can also be uncomfortable and can make eating certain foods difficult.


  • Pros: Invisalign is a clear aligner system that is nearly invisible, making it a great option for patients who are self-conscious about their appearance. The aligners are removable, which makes eating and brushing your teeth much easier.
  • Cons: Invisalign is not as effective at correcting some orthodontic problems as fixed braces. The treatment process can also take longer than fixed braces, and patients must be diligent about wearing the aligners as directed to achieve optimal results.

Ultimately, the choice between Invisalign vs fixed braces will depend on your specific orthodontic needs and goals. At Glow Dental our dentists will be able to help you determine which treatment is right for you based on a thorough examination of your oral health and the extent of your orthodontic issues.

In conclusion, both Invisalign and fixed braces have their pros and cons, and the right treatment for you will depend on your specific needs and goals. If you are considering orthodontic treatment, we offer a complimentary consultation for Invisalign which you can book online or by calling 02072237096

Dr Hooman Sanaty and his team at Glow Dental in Battersea are brilliant. From the moment you walk into the dental practice you are treated with genuine smiles, warmth and kindness by the reception team which has a calming effect and puts you at ease instantly.- Alia M
Visited Glow Dental for the first time today, and it's been some time since I had a dental check up. Stephen was an excellent dentist, really put me at ease, and I valued that he could not only talk me through - but also show me - the condition of my teeth and gums. He was really helpful with all my questions too.- Felicity B
