Invisalign treatment is a popular option for attaining straighter teeth as an adult or a child over the age of 14. Having braces as an adult might be something you have been trying to avoid. But if you never had them as a child or your teeth are moving, we offer a solution for straighter teeth — without the discomfort of traditional braces.  

Invisalign is a popular option for straightening and fixing minor misalignment in a patient’s teeth. Invisalign are clear aligners that look a bit like a nightguard or mouthguard. They are shaped to fit perfectly around your teeth and are made of a clear material. The aligners are removable and easy to clean, making maintenance a breeze. Additionally, Invisalign can be a speedy process. The process can be completed in as little as six months and you can begin seeing results in a matter of a few weeks. 

The aligners work by shifting the position of your teeth gradually. The patient wears them all day and night except when eating and brushing or flossing. The patient is given a new aligner every few weeks to continue adjusting the position of the teeth, only wearing the same aligner for a few weeks at a time. The slight adjustments of the aligners work to gradually move your teeth to the desired position, creating the perfect smile for you. 

The results of Invisalign are straighter teeth. Additionally, patients don’t have to give up foods they love that would be off-limits to those with traditional braces. The clear aligners are hard to see, making them a popular choice for adults and a small cosmetic commitment.
