It’s very common for children and teenagers to receive braces, but many adults believe that orthodontic treatment is not an option in the later years. The good news is that thanks to the development of cosmetic orthodontic options, more adults are choosing to straighten their teeth through ortho treatment. We invite you to consider Invisalign® if you are interested in discreet and convenient orthodontic treatment to achieve your dream smile.

Invisalign® clear aligners offer the following benefits:

– Removable for eating and easy cleaning
– Easy to care for and prevent poor oral hygiene over the course of treatment
– Fully customizable trays made of thermoplastic material that is smooth and comfortable
– No food restrictions since trays are taken out for mealtimes
– Orthodontic appliances that are virtually invisible and don’t further the stigma of “metal mouth”
– Straighten out the teeth to make them easier to clean
– Enhanced tooth and gum health

In comparison, these are the conditions of traditional braces:

– Poking wires that can irritate the mouth
– A “metal mouth” as a result of visible brackets and wires
– More affordable than cosmetic options such as Invisalign
– Restrictions on hard and crunchy foods
– More complications in brushing and flossing around the appliances
– Risk of broken brackets and wires
