A popular, preferred alternative to metal braces
Today, many adults and teenagers are choosing Invisalign® clear aligners over traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses patented clear aligners that look more like athletic mouthguards than braces. Because Invisalign is clear and fits snugly over your teeth, it is virtually invisible. So you can wear them anywhere without people knowing that you’re wearing "braces."
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is easily removable by the wearer. You can take them out to eat, brush and floss without hassles. And your smile will look better during and after treatment because Invisalign moves and straightens your teeth much the same way as metal braces. During treatment, you will wear a series of clear aligners, all computer designed to move your teeth to their final correct positions. Treatment time averages about 11 months.
Great for self-conscious young adults
Many young adults are too self-conscious for metal braces and will try to avoid them even if they need them. Invisalign solves that problem with clear aligners that are virtually invisible. Similar to adult Invisalign treatment, Invisalign Teen® offers more to meet a teenager’s needs. Replacement aligners, wear indicators and the ability to guide erupting adult teeth are just some of the added benefits of Invisalign Teen.
Teens also love the convenience of being able to easily remove Invisalign so they can eat, brush and floss comfortably and without food restrictions. They really like being able to participate in school and social activities without the appearance of unsightly metal braces, too.
