Some Patients Wish Their Teeth Were Straighter
Many patients casually mention to us that they wish their teeth were straighter, or that they could close the gaps between their teeth. As adults, they feel like they missed their chance at having braces, and wouldn’t want to wear them now anyway. They don’t realize, however, that we offer a discrete and effective solution to help them achieve a beautiful smile without traditional metal braces.

Invisalign is a popular choice for adults and teens who would like straighter teeth but don’t want to affect their appearance with metal braces. Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into a desired position. Additional benefits of Invisalign include:
- Flexibility — Unlike metal braces, clear aligners are removable. You can easily take them out to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth.
- Healthy — They help keep your dental health in check as you can more easily brush and floss between teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay.
- Comfort — The clear aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear. There are no wires or brackets poking into your inner cheek or gums.
- Shorter treatment time — With conventional braces, patients can expect to wear them anywhere from two to five years. Invisalign treatment periods are typically one to one and half years.
It’s never too late to have straighter teeth or a better aligned bite, and misaligned teeth can wear unevenly or cause jaw problems down the road. Invisalign allows you to boost your confidence while taking better care of your teeth.
