Invisalign provides an invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign treatment uses clear, custom made medical grade plastic "aligners" to gradually and sequentially move the teeth into the desired position. Compared to traditional metal and wire braces, Invisalign has several advantages. The clear removable aligners allow better oral hygiene, greater comfort (do not cause irritation or painful sores), and minimize lifestyle changes (less restrictions on what to eat or drink). Invisalign is a solution for those adults who could not fulfill their dream of having a picture perfect smile.
