Effective at straightening even severely crooked teeth, Invisalign is designed for teens and adults. Instead of traditional metal braces, the system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move teeth into the desired position. The aligners are barely visible when worn and can be removed for brushing, flossing and eating, and for special occasions.
Typical treatment time is about a year, though minor issues can be fixed in a much shorter timeframe. The cost is comparable to traditional orthodontics.
Besides giving you a straighter, more even smile, Invisalign can make it easier to maintain good oral hygiene, premature wear, bite problems and other issues. And because it allows you to maintain normal nutrition and dental care habits during treatment, you can start enjoying a healthier smile right away.
Even slightly crooked teeth are harder to brush and floss, which increases the risk of decay and periodontal disease. Bite problems also put greater stress on the teeth, which can lead to premature wear, jaw pain, and cracked or fractured teeth.
