Often, we think of orthodontics as something that middle and high school students deal with. However, the truth is that more and more adults are opting for orthodontics. They may not have had access to orthodontics when they were younger, or they were not financially feasible then. But more often than not many people are coming to realize that orthodontic treatments are for people of all ages. Be that as it may, many adults may not like the look associated with traditional braces. They may not want to have a mouthful of metal when they are in social or professional situations. They may not be interested in having their braces adjusted over time and the dietary restrictions and extra brushing and flossing that come with braces may not be appealing.

The Invisalign® straightening system will allow you to bypass many of the extra appointments, food issues and other things that people associate with braces, and what is more, you and your dentist are the only people that have to know you are straightening your teeth. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear aligners that fit snugly against your teeth and that are practically invisible to other people. They fit so well because they have been crafted to your specific bite pattern, and to straighten your teeth. You usually change them once a week as they slowly work to move your teeth into proper alignment. You only need to take them out to brush you and floss your teeth, to eat, and to clean them, which can be as simple as rinsing them with lukewarm water. There are no restrictions on what you can eat.

If the time has come to give yourself a straight, healthy smile, see our dentist, Dr. Jacob Shrayman for an exam and a consultation. If the Invisalign system is right for you, we can get quickly get started on improving your teeth.
