Invisalign® - Invisible Braces
Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners.
Clear aligners are generally invisible to the eye and non-permanent, so it allows you to straighten your teeth without the more obvious nature of traditional braces. You still have the ability to eat and drink as you normally would, and don’t have the issue of caring for your teeth by brushing and flossing with cumbersome wires in the way of your routine. There are also no metal brackets or pieces which can cause uncomfortable scratches or abrasions in your mouth as traditional braces potentially do. Clear aligners are custom made to fit perfectly on your teeth, designed with medical-grade plastic to shift your teeth into the desired position.

Now available for teenagers, Invisalign provides an option for a more visually subtle version of braces. Invisalign® Teen allows you to straighten and correct issues without using metal braces at all. They are removable just like retainers and allow you to straighten your smile without drawing any extra attention. It allows you to keep eating the normal foods and drink you love while also making it easy to keep things clean. Without wires and brackets on your teeth, you can easily brush and floss as you always have.
We went to leading orthodontists, parents and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign® system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today's teens' busy lifestyles!
