Moderately (average 41%) as effective as traditional braces (average 90%+), in the hands of a trained skilled orthodontic specialist (less so in hands of generalist) at correcting malocclusion. Best advice: see orthodontic specialist for discussion of what will work best for you.

Invisalign is an alternative to tranditional braces. They use clear retainers over a series of steps to move your teeth. They typically cost more, but offer a great alternative for adults who don't want people to see braces. Mouthguards will protect your teeth, but not move them.
