If you don’t like how braces will look, Invisalign®might be the solution for you! Invisalign® is a series of clear trays, or aligners, that grip your teeth and apply gentle forces to slowly move them into their new position. The clear trays won’t show up in photos or interfere with social activities. You can also remove the trays to brush and floss in order to maintain good oral hygiene throughout treatment. Invisalign® will work only if the aligners are worn 22 hours a day, which means they are only removed to eat and brush and are promptly placed back onto the teeth. For this reason and others, Invisalign® is not ideal for everyone. Only you or your teen know if they will follow these orders to achieve the best result. There is a slightly higher cost for Invisalign® but it’s worth it for those that want to be more discrete about their orthodontic treatment.
