There are millions of adults in the United States that need or want to have their teeth straightened. But many feel embarrassed about getting braces well into their adult years. One solution that balances orthodontic treatment with aesthetic desires is Invisalign®.

Invisalign treatment involves using a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that gradually reposition teeth. They are rigid and durable, but incredibly thin, so many people will not even know you are undergoing straightening treatment. Invisalign is popular among adults who want a more discreet option to improve their smile.

Invisalign can correct a variety of issues, including crowding, wide spacing, and deep, open, or crossbites. Every couple of weeks, you will be given a new custom-fabricated aligner until your teeth are in the desired position. These aligners resemble teeth whitening trays, but are designed for more prolonged use. They are made with medical-grade polyurethane resins and are completely safe.

Another major benefit of Invisalign is that the discomfort associated with metal braces is eliminated. Gone are the days of abrasions in the mouth and flossing frustration. Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time, so eating, brushing, and flossing can all take place unhindered.

If you have been considering getting your teeth straightened but have hesitated because of the appearance or inconvenience of traditional metal braces, you should consider Invisalign.
