Invisalign uses a series of thin, clear, plastic aligners to gradually, and gently straighten your teeth. Because they are nearly invisible, most people will not know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
What makes Invisalign a great treatment option?
Unlike other treatment options, there are no restrictions to what you can or cannot eat.
The aligners are removable so you have the option of taking them out during special occasions such as weddings, dates, and presentations.
The plastic aligners are made of smooth and comfortable plastic instead of sharp metal that can irritate your cheeks and gums.
Compared to other orthodontic treatment options, you do not often have to come in for office visits. We typically have patients come in only once every 12 weeks.
Invisalign can be used to treat patients at any age, even children as young as seven years old.
