Don’t look in the mirror and think that you can’t get the straighter, healthier, better-looking smile that you’ve always wanted! Orthodontics isn’t just for teens anymore. You can get the smile of your dreams at any age. If you are worried about keeping up a professional appearance while straightening your teeth, we have a solution for you: Invisalign®.

The first question is, of course: is Invisalign® effective? The answer is: yes! They can shift teeth horizontally, vertically, or rotate your teeth when necessary. The Invisalign® system can even be used to correct malocclusion! They are just as effective as braces but without all the hassle.

So, what is Invisalign®, exactly? It is a system which uses durable, custom-fit plastic aligners that shift the teeth into place. It allows for teeth to be straightened without the use of traditional brackets, bands, and wires.

Invisalign® aligners, as the name suggests, are so clear as to be practically invisible. This lets you keep a professional appearance even while straightening teeth. Additionally, the aligners are removable, allowing you to live your life uninterrupted. Together, these traits make Invisalign® a superb option for discreet and effective orthodontic care.

As we mentioned, aligners are completely custom-made. This means they are constructed specifically for you based on a care plan provided by your doctor. Aligners will need to be rotated every 1-2 weeks. You will see your doctor regularly during treatment.
