We all know people who have had, or currently have braces. Now consider how many of them were adults? Despite our oral health being just as important later in life, if not more so, adults tend to attach a stigma to the idea of wearing braces. Thankfully, clear braces have finally arrived. It’s never too late to get braces, and now you can do so discreetly.

Benefits of Invisalign® braces:
– Easier cleaning; aligners are easily removable for eating or cleaning
– Simplifies oral hygiene and bite problems
– They are 100% customizable
– No food restrictions
– Invisalign® is virtually invisible
– Smooth, comfortable, patented thermoplastic aligners
– Better smile with less social stigma of “metal-mouth”
– Straight teeth easier to clean than crooked teeth
– Healthier teeth and gums

Compared to traditional braces:
– Wire can poke and irritate mouth
– Require brackets and wires
– Less expensive
– Stigma of “metal-mouth” look, which can lower self-esteem and cause anxiety, teens and adults alike
– Lots of food restrictions
– Harder to brush and floss effectively
– Can break while being worn, potentially causing serious damage to your gums
