Invisalign has completely revolutionized the field of orthodontics since its introduction in 1997. While traditional braces still play a role, increasingly, “the clear alternative to braces” has become a more and more popular solution. Invisalign’s nearly invisible aligners can correct overbites, cross-bites, tooth crowding…in short, everything that braces can correct.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Lifestyle Considerations: Braces are extremely obvious. Whether you have class pictures coming up, a hot date for the prom, or a promotion opportunity at work, braces can make you feel self-conscious. Braces also have a tendency to poke and scratch your mouth, due to the metal brackets and wires. They also require you to stay away from common foods such as popcorn and apples. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, are made from a smooth plastic that does not cut or scrape, and can be removed when you want to enjoy your favorite foods.

Improved Oral Hygiene: Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can simply pop out your aligner, brush and floss your teeth like normal, and clean the aligner. Braces are difficult to clean around, which can promote the demineralization of your tooth enamel, putting you at risk for dark spots on your teeth after braces and even tooth decay.

Convenience: While braces require frequent adjustments at the dentist’s office, Invisalign wearers typically see the dentist only once every four to six weeks. You will change your aligner at home every two weeks or as directed by your dentist.

3-D Modeling: While braces leave you guessing what your new smile will look like, Invisalign shows you exactly what to expect. Before starting treatment, your dentist will create a 3-D digital model of your mouth. You will see the results of each stage of treatment, including your final smile.
