woman inserting an invisalign trayInvisalign® is a convenient way to achieve a straighter smile that tends to have fewer drawbacks than traditional braces. It’s a treatment that involves a series of clear plastic aligners that slowly shift your teeth into their desired placements.

Since Invisalign® aligners don’t have metal brackets or wires, many users find that they’re more comfortable to wear. You can also remove them, allowing you to keep your diet and oral hygiene routine the same.

How Do I Know if Invisalign® is Right for Me?

If you’re looking to straighten your teeth, you do have options—adults can certainly use traditional braces. However, many enjoy the benefits of Invisalign®. The treatment is removable, comfortable, and usually takes up less time than braces. While treatment times vary, many patients are able to wrap up within 1 year.

We treat a lot of patients who once had straight teeth, but their smile has shifted since they got older. Others have had their teeth shift after their braces came off. Still other patients have wanted a straighter smile all their lives and are finally taking steps to get there in adulthood. No matter your situation, we will work with you.

Specific Problems Invisalign® Can Address

Invisalign and braces have a lot of similarities in the way they work. They can even treat the same alignment issues, including:

  • Crowded Teeth: Not enough space in the jaw for teeth to fit in comfortably
  • Gap Teeth: Teeth that have extra space between them
  • Open Bite: Upper and lower teeth don’t completely close together
  • Cross-Bite: When the upper and lower jaws don’t align
  • Overbite: When the upper front teeth close past the lower teeth
  • Underbite: When the lower front teeth jut out past upper teeth

Whether you have one of the above issues, or you simply want straighter teeth, talk to your dentist about Invisalign®.
