Invisalign is a new straightening system specifically designed to to straighten your teeth over time. The process is all carried out invisibly, using transparent, removable aligners. Invisalign is suitable for fully grown adults as well as teenagers and young children.

Invisalign is certainly more pleasing on the eye than any traditional method such as braces. With braces, brackets or metal wiring, you run the risk of irritation to the gums or mouth. Invisalign guarantees comfort as it works using smooth aligners.
While being treated with Invisalign, you can floss or brush your teeth as you normally would. You also have the benefit of not having to change your regular diet. This is possible as the aligners can be easily removed. Another huge benefit is that the Invisalign aligners are transparent. Nobody will even be able to detect that you are using them. If you have teeth that have abnormal spacing, have relocated since you had braces taken removed, or are crooked, Invisalign could very well be the treatment you are looking for.
