Invisalign Vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign has one major difference when compared to conventional braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets cemented to the teeth. While conventional braces rely on your orthodontist tightening wires so shift teeth into place, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear aligners replaced by you every two weeks. Custom-made to fit around your teeth and gumline, these clear braces are made from durable plastic that (sometimes with the help of attachments) apply force to each tooth so they shift into the most ideal position. For social and professional patients, Invisalign is the ideal choice for discreet orthodontic treatment!

Why Straighten Teeth?
Aside from the obvious aesthetic benefits of orthodontics, straightening teeth has functional and health benefits as well. Teeth that are not aligned correctly can cause excess strain to your jaw joints and muscles, which can lead to symptoms of TMJ disorder, chronic headaches, and a clicking or locking jaw. Crooked teeth also make it difficult to properly brush and floss, increasing your risk for decay and disease. Orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign, that moves teeth into proper occlusion reduces or eliminates all of these issues, helping you enjoy pain-free eating, better oral hygiene, and overall improved health. Best of all, while your teeth are being straightened with Invisalign, you are free to enjoy a life unhindered by the limitations and unsightliness of conventional braces!
