If you are looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment, our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign® clear aligners. Unlike braces which rely on metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment uses custom-made aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are created using special computer technology to fit your mouth comfortably while also moving your teeth into their optimal positions.
Invisalign clear aligners can treat all the same orthodontic issues as braces, including crowded and crooked teeth, gapped and spaced teeth, and problems with the bite such as overbites, open bites, underbites and crossbites. When you visit our office for the first time, our orthodontist will evaluate your mouth to determine if Invisalign treatment is a good option for you.
Invisalign treatment is nearly invisible, making it popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for a more discreet alternative to traditional braces. However, because your aligners are made from clear plastic, you will need to clean them regularly to avoid giving your teeth the appearance of being dirty. Your aligners are also removable, allowing you to eat, brush and floss normally throughout your treatment process. If you receive this treatment, make sure to wear your aligners as often as possible. The more frequently you wear your aligners, the more quickly your teeth will move into their proper positions.
