When it comes to crooked, crowded, or oddly spaced teeth and misaligned bites, traditional metal braces offer one of the most affordable and reliable solutions available today. They still work using brackets and wires to shift the teeth, but thankfully, the appliances of today have a much more subtle appearance than the braces you likely saw growing up! Their ease of use and durability make them ideal for younger patients, but they can also help adults who have more complicated orthodontic issues.
If you’re an adult who wants to straighten your teeth, facing the world with a mouthful of metal braces is probably the last thing you want to do, but thanks to Invisalign, you don’t have to. With this treatment, the teeth are shifted using a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners. No one will notice you’re using Invisalign unless you tell them, and whenever you want to eat or brush, you can easily take your aligners off until you’re done. This helps Invisalign fit seamlessly into absolutely any lifestyle.Learn More About Invisalign®
