Think of traditional braces and you probably picture a teenager wearing coloured brackets and noticeable metal wires. If you’re an adult with crooked teeth, you might wonder—is there another option for me? With Invisalign clear aligners, the answer is a resounding YES!
What is Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign has no brackets or wires—it simply consists of a series of custom fit plastic mouth guards known as aligners that are worn for a specific period of time. Over time, the aligners straighten your teeth to a more aesthetically pleasing (and functional) position.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can aligners be removed?
Yes! Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat or if you need to spend a fun night out with friends. However, we recommend wearing your aligners as often as possible to complete your treatment on schedule.
Is Invisalign ideal for you?
Invisalign is often a great solution for people who want to correct slightly crooked teeth, minor crowding or gapped teeth. Patients needing severe correction may do better with traditional metal braces.
