Invisalign are suitable for most older teens and adults who have the following dental issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Mild gaps in the teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign clear braces offer many advantages for patients who opt for this type of orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign treatment is not only more discreet than traditional metal orthodontics, but treatment times are usually faster as well. For most patients, treatment lasts for six to 18 months.

Patients also love that there are no food restrictions with Invisalign since the clear plastic aligners are removed for eating. For the same reason, brushing and flossing is a breeze—and no different from a normal oral hygiene routine.

Patients who have a special event or who will have their picture taken can remove the aligners for a few hours. It’s important to remember, however, that the aligners must be worn about 22 hours a day if patients are going to reach their smile goals.
