If you are an adult who has always wanted straighter teeth but felt the look of a full-metal mouth was for kids and couldn't contemplate undergoing a major lifestyle change, don't give up hope: Invisalign invisible aligners are the solution for you. These days, adults make up almost half of the orthodontic patients who want to get the smile they always dreamed of. Recent studies show that a great smile can not only improve your personal life, it can affect your career as well. A bright healthy smile makes you seem friendlier and more approachable. And a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. Crooked, misaligned teeth can not only affect your looks but also your health and comfort. Misaligned teeth can cause headaches and jaw pain, and when teeth are crooked, plaque build-up may increase, leading to periodontal disease and gum disease. Improper bite also means you can't chew food properly, which can sometimes lead to gastrointestinal problems. Invisalign can give you the healthy smile you have always wished you could have without the discomfort of metal or the lifestyle change they demand. Instead, Invisalign works through a series of comfortable aligners that no one will notice you're wearing. These clear, medical-grade plastic aligners function just like traditional braces in that they use controlled force to guide your teeth into proper alignment. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move-little by little, week by week-until they have reached their ideal position.
Our experienced and highly trained staff work with three dimensional computer imaging to create these virtually invisible aligners designed just for you and each step of your progress.
And with Invisalign you can live just as you want to: eat what you want, brush and floss your teeth as usual, even take the aligners out for special occasion or a date!
Forget traditional metal braces. Embrace life with Invisalign. So subtle, so comfortable, they are like contact lenses for your smile!
