The Clear Choice
While metal braces are a traditional orthodontic option, many of our adult patients would love to straighten their teeth in a more discreet way. Invisalign® is a popular choice that uses clear aligner trays to slowly transition teeth into the correct placement. Because Invisalign® is known for being invisible, adults love that they can receive treatment without others being aware. Invisalign® treatment can help improve conditions such as large gaps between teeth, overcrowding, bite concerns and crooked teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® offers numerous benefits, which have increased its popularity over the years:
- Practically Invisible – Invisalign® trays are easy to miss and can remain undetected.
- Shorter Treatment Time – The average treatment time is 12 to 18 months, compared to 2-3 years with traditional metal braces.
- Easy to Maintain – The clear aligners are easy to clean, only needing to be brushed gently with water. We also suggest soaking in denture cleaner to remove bacteria.
- No Food Restrictions – The trays are removable, so you are free to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages.
Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks, and we recommend that patients visit our office every six weeks. We also recommend that the trays be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. It is important to be mindful that trays are being worn appropriately to ensure that the treatment will be effective. We recommend Invisalign® treatment for adults and older teens.
