Invisalign® is a clear plastic alternative to braces for adults and some teenagers. Invisalign “aligners” are a less obtrusive way to realign or straighten teeth. Dr. Chiu fits a series of Invisalign aligners precisely to your teeth. Approximately every two weeks, you switch out your Invisalign tray with a new one, gradually shifting your teeth into better alignment.
Who is Invisalign good for?
Whether or not they’ve had traditional braces as teenagers, some adults may require additional alignment later in life. Invisalign is a great option for adults and some teens to straighten their teeth and improve their smiles.
How long does Invisalign take?
Every patient is different, so the time needed to straighten teeth will vary, but the average is about 12 months.
Why is Invisalign better than traditional braces?
Our patients love Invisalign because it’s an unobtrusive, clear solution that can correct their teeth alignment over just a matter of months. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove Invisalign braces to eat and drink, or to brush and floss your teeth.
