Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional braces. They are an appealing option for some as the aligners are virtually invisible, and are also removable.
- With the ability to remove the aligners teeth can be cleaned and flossed as normal, often resulting in better hygiene throughout the orthodontic process.
- There is no concern over metal allergies, which offers an option for people who have not been able to receive braces due to allergies.
- They are considered to be more comfortable than metal braces.
- The timeframe for treatment is reduced. Invisalign can sometimes reduce treatment time to just one year.
A great option for Teens:
Wearing braces can be a tough adjustment for adolescent patients. With Invisalign Teen®, your child can straighten his or her teeth with clear plastic aligners. Not only will this bolster your child’s self-confidence, it will also allow him or her to eat foods normally “off limits” to braces-wearers (like popcorn and gum), clean and floss teeth easily and continue activities such as playing sports or playing an instrument without having to deal with metal wires and brackets. One more benefit? Because fewer adjustments are needed than traditional braces, Invisalign Teen requires fewer orthodontist visits – a windfall benefit for busy teens and their parents.
A convenient and discreet option for Adults:
Many adults who want straight teeth put off treatment because they don’t want to wear traditional braces. This can lead to serious periodontal and other health problems later in life. With Invisalign, adults no longer have to make a choice between improving their smile and maintaining their appearance. Adult Invisalign patients enjoy the same benefits as teen patients, and the discreet nature of treatment ensures that people focus on you, not your braces.

An effective option for a variety of orthodontic problems:
In addition to treating mild cases of crooked or protruding teeth, Invisalign can potentially be used to treat serious malocclusion, overbites, underbites, widely gapped teeth, crowded teeth and more.
