Unsightly Braces Are History
Thank goodness that modern technology has made metal braces mostly obsolete. It is not necessary to suffer with the discomfort of metal in your mouth to straighten crooked teeth. When appearances, function and comfort matters, Invisalign is the answer to all three. The name says it all. Only the patient knows they are wearing Invisalign because they are nearly impossible to see by others.
Clear plastic aligner trays are used to gently, gradually straighten teeth. This procedure takes time but results are permanent and well worth the wait. Unlike metal braces, aligner trays are easily removed which allows patients to take care of oral hygiene as usual and then put them back in without a dentists assistance. This procedure is not age specific. No matter what a persons age is, straighter teeth are more than possible with Invisalign.
