Straighter Smiles for Adults
For your bite to operate properly, your teeth should be aligned to meet each other at the same time whenever you close your bite. Proper alignment allows your teeth to withstand the pressures of biting and chewing without sustaining damage. When your teeth are out of alignment, then Invisalign® Clear Braces can help restore balance and improve your bite’s function.
The Point of Orthodontic Treatment
Children are usually the most susceptible to alignment issues because their teeth can more easily become crooked as they grow and develop. Nevertheless, older teens and adults can also experience tooth misalignment, or malocclusion, and straightening your smile could be necessary to prevent issues that could require more extensive restorative dentistry treatment. However, many adults may feel a touch of apprehension at the thought of wearing metal braces for a couple of years. Fortunately, we offer a more discreet, and more convenient, alternative to braces through Invisalign's clear aligners.
More Discreet Orthodontics for Teens and Adults
When older teens and adults exhibit crooked teeth, they can often find a more discreet alternative to traditional metal braces through a series of clear orthodontic aligners. Invisalign® consists of nearly invisible aligners made from form-fitting acrylic. Rather than attaching brackets to your teeth and using wires to gently move them, clear aligners are designed in a series, with each one moving your teeth closer to more desirable positions. The removable aligners also make daily hygiene easier by eliminating the need to brush and floss around complex braces.
