No More Unfair Choices

Having to choose between feeling embarrassed about misaligned teeth and feeling embarrassed about braces isn’t much of a fair choice. Either way, your self-esteem will suffer, and if you choose to live with misaligned teeth, it may be a choice that stays with you for the rest of your life. After all, there is a kind of stigma attached to the idea of adults wearing braces. Thus, undergoing orthodontic treatment at a young age is very important. However, by choosing straight teeth, you should not have to choose months or even years of embarrassment, and that is where Invisalign comes into play.

Invisalign features a series of clear aligners that will reposition teeth subtly. The system does away with wires and brackets completely, opting for clear materials that allow your teeth to remain the focus of your smile. Patients who opt for Invisalign will receive multiple aligners. These aligners should be worn except at mealtimes and when brushing and flossing teeth. After a specified treatment time has passed, patients will progress to the next aligners in the series, moving ever closer to their ideal smiles, all without embarrassment or the hassle of attending multiple dental visits to have their braces adjusted or tightened.
