Invisalign is a clear braces alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign offers patients a highly discreet and more comfortable way to straighten their teeth at any age. The removable, clear aligners are barely visible to others and can be taken off for brushing and eating.

Benefits of Invisalign®
Straight teeth promote improved oral hygiene and a more comfortable bite. Patients with crooked teeth experience higher risks of developing tooth decay, excessive tooth wear, and even tooth loss.
Invisalign is a discreet, convenient way to realign teeth without the hassle of traditional braces. After treatment patients feel more confident and enjoy sharing their smile more often. Some patients report noticing a decrease in tension in the jaw, and improved function and comfort of their bite.
Invisalign aligners are removable and allow patients to continue their normal oral hygiene routine during treatment including daily teeth brushing and flossing. Since they are removable, this means there are no eating restrictions so you can enjoy your favorite foods. Patients who choose Invisalign to straighten their teeth experience less decay and discoloration commonly associated with metal braces.
Invisalign® vs Metal Braces
Metal braces are known to be uncomfortable and difficult to care for. Food often gets caught in the brackets and certain foods must be avoided altogether. They also can cause tooth enamel staining from the permanently attached brackets. All these disadvantages can be avoided with Invisalign invisible braces. You will enjoy the benefits of a shorter treatment time and the ability to remove the clear braces. This almost unnoticeable treatment offers no eating restrictions since they are removable and no teeth staining from the brackets.
