Over the past 15 years or so, Invisalign® braces have become extremely popular and are definitely not showing any signs of slowing down. With its added success, there's been a host of common misconceptions regarding Invisalign throughout its lifespan. If you're struggling to figure out if Invisalign would be a good solution for you, take a closer look at some of the uncovered myths and misconceptions of this amazing dental treatment. 

Too Expensive

The belief that Invisalign is set at a higher price point than traditional braces is not only among the most common misconceptions it may very well be the biggest one. Heres the truth about the cost of Invisalign. Invisalign is actually about the same amount as traditional braces. Therefore, when you're trying to find the right orthodontic choice for a cosmetic dentistry treatment, you shouldn't let the expense be a barrier.

Not as Effective

Another myth about Invisalign is the notion that it will not be as efficient and effective as traditional metal braces. However, the use of the translucent aligners works just as well, although they may not seem as durable as the metal braces.


There are a lot of people that think they are too old for braces. Others might feel they are too young or that their child might also be too young. As such, braces are designed to work well for all ages, from small children continuing throughout older adults.


Too Much to Maintain

The last myth to discuss about Invisalign is the assumption that they are too much of a hassle to maintain. This, of course, is just that, a myth. Maintaining Invisalign trays is about the same as caring for conventional braces.
