Looking for a way to obtain a straighter smile without committing to a mouth full of metal? Invisalign® aligners are a solution that’s popular with our adult patients because it’s discreet, comfortable, and effective. Read on to learn more, and to see if it might be a good fit for your needs.

What’s Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners can serve as an alternative to traditional braces for many of our patients. The aligners, worn for the majority of the day, will gradually shift the patient’s smile into place over the course of their treatment plan.

How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?

Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with the Summit Family Orthodontics team. Once we assess your needs, we’ll establish your treatment plan and create custom clear aligners for you. Over the course of your treatment plan, you’ll work through a series of different trays. These aligners will gradually shift your teeth into desired placement, addressing whatever imperfections we discussed at the outset.

The Benefits of Invisalign

One of the most obvious benefits of Invisalign is that they are just about invisible. This makes the treatment especially popular with adult patients, who aren’t keen on the idea of sporting traditional braces. You won’t have to worry about smiling in photos or making a first impression on a date. Your smile will shine through the trays throughout the treatment. Another key benefit of this treatment is the fact that these aligners are removable. And while you must wear the aligners for the majority of the day and at night in order to succeed in your treatment, this makes eating and cleaning your teeth a whole lot easier, and more effective!
