Are you unhappy with the appearance of your crooked or misaligned teeth? Or perhaps your teen has crooked teeth, but does not want to receive bulky braces. If these situations sound familiar, you may be able to benefit from Invisalign.

Invisalign straighteners are nearly invisible and work to straighten the teeth without braces. Patients will wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, and can remove them to eat, drink, and brush their teeth. Many individuals choose Invisalign over traditional braces due to the many associated benefits. Read on to learn more about this breakthrough treatment and how it can benefit you.

Nearly Invisible

Traditional braces are very noticeable, especially in adults, and can be unattractive. Invisalign braces are nearly invisible, making them virtually undetectable! Many patients choose Invisalign braces over traditional braces based solely on this feature, as they do not want to change their outward appearance with metal braces.


Traditional metal braces are attached to the teeth, and can only be professionally removed. One of the major benefits of Invisalign aligners is that they can be removed when necessary. Wearers can remove Invisalign braces to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making the experience much more comfortable.

Quick Treatment

Patients often see results faster with Invisalign. Metal braces may have to worn for long periods of time- up to five years- while Invisalign treatments usually only take a year to a year and a half to create a straight smile.
