Invisalign: The Best Alternative to Braces

Have your teeth moved since your braces have been off? Is your smile slightly crooked and you want a quick solution to fix it?

Regular Orthodontic Treatment

Generally, people get braces anytime from elementary school to high school. You know what we’re talking about, the clunky metal brackets with bright colored bands around them. Yuck. Once the fun game of choosing the most obnoxious color combinations is over, most people want a practical solution to fix their smile. Braces can leave stains on your teeth and make it extremely difficult to brush and floss; with Invisalign you simply take out the tray, and your oral hygiene isn’t hindered in the slightest way!

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to metal braces and makes it virtually impossible to notice the aligner straightening your teeth. Even if you have had braces in the past, teeth can move throughout your lifetime. So your once perfect smile can become crooked. Invisalign is the perfect solution for you! First you will schedule an appointment to have impressions of your teeth. Next, a custom tray is made and a few clear brackets will be attached to your teeth. When the tray is inserted into your mouth, the tray locks onto the brackets to move your teeth in the right direction. Every two weeks, you’ll receive a new tray to constantly straighten your smile.  Invisalign is virtually invisible and is very effective at straightening your smile.
