Did you know that orthodontics is becoming easier and more convenient than ever? Thanks to Invisalign, you won’t have to suffer through two years of braces. Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces created in 1997. It has slowly gained popularity the past several years, and for good reason.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable, durable trays made out of a special thermoplastic material custom-fit to the shape of your teeth. They can be just as effective in treating your bite problems as braces and in less time, taking an average of six to eighteen months. They are more aesthetically pleasing as they are clear and thin with no wires or brackets. They are also removable, making it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy.

There are some people that would do better in braces than Invisalign, though these are the minority. Patients with bridgework or teeth that need to move vertically, back tooth bite issues, or canine-premolar issues are examples of this. Also, if you feel that you would not have the discipline to keep the Invisalign trays in for 22 hours or more every day, consider getting braces instead.
