If you aren’t happy about the look of your smile, Invisalign might be right for you.
Many people are great candidates for Invisalign.
If you are thinking about getting braces, you should consider Invisalign.
Many adults prefer Invisalign as an alternative to braces. Invisalign is more discreet and looks more natural than traditional metal braces. Invisalign is custom-made for each person’s mouth. It is clear plastic and acts like a brace or guide for your teeth. This piece that goes in your mouth is referred to as an aligner, or sometimes a tray.
It is easy to maintain good oral health with Invisalign because you remove the aligner before eating and to perform your daily oral hygiene routine. You can very easily remove the aligner whenever you want. It naturally goes back in place and back to work to straighten your teeth when you put the aligner back in your mouth.

Invisalign works because the aligners gently guide your teeth into their desired position.
Another reason Invisalign is preferred over braces is because it is more comfortable. The plastic aligners should not irritate the inside of your mouth or cheeks like metal braces often do. Also, the final position of the teeth is very predictable with Invisalign. That is not the case with braces. There is not as much movement control when working with metal braces for repositioning a certain tooth or multiple teeth.
Because the aligners are made custom for you with your end-goal in mind, you don’t have to visit the dentist office as often as you would with traditional braces. With metal braces, you must visit your dentist to get them tightened and adjusted. There is no need for that when you use Invisalign. We’ll still want to see you intermittently during the process to make sure things are moving as planned and that everything still fits correctly.
Digital imaging is used to create your custom Invisalign trays. This means that the results are predictable and precise.
The cost of Invisalign is typically comparable to the cost of braces. There is no flat-rate for Invisalign because it is a highly customized product, made specifically for your smile goals.
