What's the best way to straighten teeth? Are traditional braces the way to go or is there a better way?

personally, I prefer traditional braces to everything else that is out there.  You will get the fasted and most predictable results with them.  having said that, the other alternatives are also acceptable if traditional braces don't work for you and your lifestyle.  they just may take longer and cost more.

Best is hard to define for straightening teeth

There are many methods out there, and best is only defined by the patient. Brackets and wires are more predictable, yet Invisalign is a very nice alternative. A 6-month treatment of braces is a fantastic "middle ground" for most people.
