Invisalign® is a metal-free alternative to fixed orthodontics (metal braces) for the treatment of malocclusion (misaligned teeth). Addressing and treating malocclusion improves oral health and overall wellbeing. Some of the most common conditions associated with malocclusion include:

Crowding and Rotation: Not enough room for the teeth

Excess Spacing: Spaces between the teeth
Deep Bite: Upper front teeth hide lower front teeth
Excessive Overjet: protruding upper teeth
Cross Bite: teeth are trapped by each other preventing ideal function
Edge to Edge Bite: Upper and lower front teeth edges meet end to end
Anterior Open Bite: Back teeth connect but space present between front teeth

With Invisalign®, there are no metal brackets or wires bonded to the natural tooth structure. The metal-free removable design of Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and easy to incorporate into any lifestyle. It allows for easier access during daily brushing and flossing which promotes healthier teeth and gums and reduces the risk of tooth decay.

Correcting improper tooth alignment along with good oral hygiene practices at home significantly reduces the probability of:

• Tooth decay
• Periodontal disease and bone loss
• Loose teeth
• Tooth sensitivity
• Gum recession
• Tooth fracture/chipping
• Abnormal tooth wear
• TMJ dysfunction
• Inability to properly chew
• Low confidence and self-esteem

Healthy, properly aligned teeth are something to SMILE about!
