Invisalign was introduced in the late 1990s and has gained prominence and preference since that time.
Effective for Most Alignment Issues
Invisalign has proven effective to resolve crooked teeth, protruding teeth, malocclusion, overbite and underbite. Elastics are now available to help solve more complex issues.
Because they are clear, Invisalign braces are seldom noticed. The wearer must remove them to eat and to brush so there are no worries about food particles getting lodged behind them.
Invisalign was designed with comfort in mind. They are kinder to the inside of your mouth than metal and exert less pressure on the teeth and gums, while still being quite effective.
For adults the length of treatment is considerably less than with traditional braces. Invisalign can complete the realignment within a year or year and a half. For teens and tweens there is no difference in the time it takes to move the teeth.
Individualized Treatment Plans
Because Invisalign uses 3-D technology, there is less chance for an error. You understand the process in advance and can be confident in the progress of your treatment.
