Invisalign

Invisalign does the same job as braces but in a different way. They both work to correct crooked and crowded teeth in teens and adults. Unlike braces, though, you don’t have to deal with wires and brackets; instead, Invisalign is an application of a series of clear trays that you can remove when eating, brushing, and flossing.

These trays are custom fit to your teeth and are designed to move the position of your jaw and teeth through a series of different trays that are worn all day. Each tray is slightly different from the one before, making the movement of your teeth gradual, yet effective.

Because you don’t have to come in monthly to have your orthodontic appliance adjusted, Invisalign is wonderful for those with a busy lifestyle. Many adults choose to use Invisalign because it is not as restrictive as traditional braces; they are discreet, and you don’t have to change your eating habits for the duration of the time wearing them.
