What if you could straighten your teeth without all the metal brackets and wires in your mouth? With Invisalign, this is possible.
What is Invisalign?
Think of Invisalign as invisible braces. The technology consists of customized aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, clear plastic that you wear over your teeth.
How Does It Work?
The patient simply wears their custom-made aligner trays, which gently move the teeth based on the orthodontistâ€™s exact plan. About every two weeks the patient is given a new set of trays is to keep the treatment progressing. Patients are expected to wear their aligners 20 to 22 hours per day. This should is relatively easy to accomplish since the trays are so comfortable.

Why Choose Invisalign?
Would you feel comfortable speaking at a work meeting with metal braces on your teeth? How about going on a job interview? If you answered no, then youâ€™ll understand why Invisalign is a favored option when it comes to braces for adults.

Invisalign also allows you to continue eating whatever foods you like. There are no restrictions on food, gum, or candy, since you simply pop out the aligner trays when you want to eat and then pop them back in when youâ€™re done.
You can also continue to brush your teeth and floss normally with Invisalign. You donâ€™t have to worry about brushing around brackets and wires. You donâ€™t have to deal with food getting caught in a bracket and struggling to clean it out.
