If you’re like many people, you probably read online reviews before you buy something. Why do you do that? It’s probably because you know that all goods aren’t created equally. The same can be said about the people you rely on to do things—they don’t all have the same skills, capabilities or accreditations.
When it comes to choosing an Invisalign consultant, you can rest assured that every Invisalign orthodontist has received specialized training in addition to completing the education required to earn the title of “orthodontist.” While every Invisalign orthodontist has the training to be able to create a custom Invisalign treatment for patients in need, some of these talented professionals have earned meaningful accreditations which set them apart from their peers.

At Clearsmile Orthodontics, we know our patients live their definition of an active, full life every day. We’re thrilled that our patients range in age from children to seniors and we’re equally happy that our patients have such a wide range of lifestyles.
Over the years, we’ve noticed that our patients are all vulnerable to the same thing. And that’s “life.” Life often brings many things to your doorstep that can make it impossible for you to keep track of or maintain your Invisalign clear aligners in good condition.

Unfortunately, too many grown-ups and young adults have developed a near-reflexive reaction to cover their mouths when they smile.
When you think about the behavior of your child’s friends when they were in elementary school, you probably don’t remember those same insecurities. Instead, you probably recall your kid’s buddies laughing open-mouthed with the reckless abandon you might miss dearly.
It seems that many people grow increasingly aware of their smile as they get older, particularly during the years after they lose most or all of their baby teeth. Why is that the case? Peer pressure to have the perfect smile might be to blame. A loss of hope as permanent teeth fail to grow in properly may be another reason.
No matter what your motivation might be, there’s no reason for you—or anyone else—to be ashamed of your smile. There’s also no reason for the majority of young and older adults to resign themselves to wearing braces to correct an imperfect smile. That’s because an alternative to braces has become readily available to people in most age groups in recent years. And that alternative is Invisalign.

In recent years, patients have been turning to Invisalign rather than traditional metal braces to fix their imperfect smiles.
