What are Your Options?

Crooked teeth can often be embarrassing for adults who never had the chance to have corrective orthodontic work. Having crooked teeth as an adult is a catch-22. They may be embarrassed with their current smiles, but smiling with braces at age 45 might be equally embarrassing. Many may think they have no options besides getting braces as an adult, but that is not so!

  • Invisalign is not as noticeable. It is made of a clear, essentially invisible plastic material that allows you to correct your teeth discreetly. The aligners are shaped in a similar manner to whitening trays or retainers.
  • The Invisalign process is relatively quick. The average patient wears Invisalign liners for 12 months.
  • Invisalign aliners are removable. Ideally, they should be worn 20-22 hours per day to achieve the best and most timely results.

With this alternative system, you can continue to floss daily and brush your teeth at least twice daily with no hindrance.

As an additional benefit of the removable Invisalign liners, there are no dietary restrictions!
