Invisalign Pros and Cons

Below is a list of some of the pros and cons of Invisalign clear aligners for consumers in Monroe, NY.

Invisalign: Pros


Invisalign clear aligners may be removed at any time compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign works through translucent clear trays that can be inserted or removed at will to help mold a perfect smile.

No Pain

Invisalign users report comfort wearing Invisalign clear aligners and praise the treatment’s ability to align teeth without the pain generally associated with braces. 


Many consumers chose Invisalign treatment due to the aesthetic advantage it offers. It can be hard to notice if someone is wearing Invisalign, even when looking closely. This makes the product a popular option for many people. Invisalign offers an unseen way of straightening your teeth.

Invisalign: Cons

Invisalign comes with its own set of cons that you will want to consider before starting your treatment with Invisalign.

May Change Speech

Because Invisalign works by requiring consumers to place plastic molds over their teeth, it makes it harder for some customers to maintain natural speech and pronounce words as usually do. People may experience lisps, and other speech issues wearing clear aligners. Adopting and learning how to talk with the aligner trays could take some time.


Invisalign is more expensive than traditional braces and similar at-home straightening brands. Invisalign can range between $3,500–$8,000. Part of this is the in-person monitored treatment by a licensed orthodontist compared to at-home aligners that make you sent pictures of your teeth to monitor your results. Most dental insurance plans cover some of the payments of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is also an established brand founded in 1997, with over 7 million smiles treated worldwide.
