The emphasis on having a beautiful and healthy smile is prompting more adults to consider utilizing orthodontics to straighten their teeth. There are several good reasons for investing in a healthier, straighter smile. Uneven teeth can affect the ability to bite and chew, in addition crooked teeth often result in unhealthy gums and teeth. Other health problems, such as a clicking jaw, can also result from teeth not being in correct alignment.
If traditional metal braces are not something you would consider, Invisalign® is a possible choice for you. Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of clear removable plastic aligners (trays) that you change out about every two weeks. Each aligner progressively moves your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position. Office visits are required approximately every 6 to 8 weeks to monitor progress and deliver new aligners. Invisalign® is a great way to move teeth and allow you to not be embarrassed by your appearance while doing it.
