Invisalign Clear Braces
Misaligned teeth can cause headaches and jaw pain, and when teeth are crooked, plaque build-up may increase, leading to periodontal (gum) disease. Teeth that don’t line up properly mean a bad bite – and that means you can’t chew food properly – which can sometimes lead to gastrointestinal problems.
So, you consider braces. You look around at all the fresh-faced kids. Braces look somehow charming on them, but on you? You aren’t so sure.
Clear Braces Are the Clear Choice
If crooked teeth, gaps in your smile, crowding, an overbite or other minor balance issues are making you uncomfortable, we have a unique and perfectly wearable alternative to traditional braces – Invisalign® clear dental aligners.
What Makes Invisalign so Special?
Invisalign aligners are a great choice for professionals because they are not only virtually invisible, they require practically no lifestyle change.
Invisalign’s aligners are made of clear, medical-grade plastic so no one can see that they are there. These subtle braces are also smooth and comfortable and will not cause the cuts, chafing and abrading that metal braces sometimes cause. And to top it off, you can even remove our aligners!
That means you can continue your oral care regime as usual with no changes in your brushing and flossing habits. It also allows you to take your aligners out for a special occasion, public speaking, to sing or play an instrument. Professional musicians love Invisalign for just that reason!
Some of our patients have even experienced weight loss during their Invisalign treatment because of reduced snacking! Another bonus is that you can use the aligners as whitening trays – when treatment is over, you may find that you have experienced a complete makeover
This is dentistry that fits your lifestyle.
