Invisible braces have taken the place of a mouth filled with metal while they straighten crooked, crowded, or unevenly spaced teeth. Invisalign clear braces make it possible for you to live your life without worry of cutting your mouth on your braces, getting food stuck in them, or being afraid to smile. Invisalign will help you feel more confident, and you will begin to enjoy smiling every chance you get.

Who Can Wear Invisalign Invisible Braces?

Invisalign clear braces are perfect for anyone who needs teeth straightening but does not want the look of conventional wire braces. Adults often prefer clear braces because they might feel too old to wear braces but do want to have their teeth aligned.

Many teenagers like to wear Invisalign because they will not have the stigma of conventional braces. Braces wearers of any age will appreciate the smoother feel inside their mouth without sharp metal edges.

How Are Invisalign Braces Made and Applied?

Dr. Justin Schultz or Dr. Lauren Larson will take a mold of your mouth with a special 3-D machine. The measurements will be used to manufacture a custom-made set of Invisalign clear braces especially for your mouth. The invisible braces will be adjusted to a perfect fit, and your clear aligners will be ready for you to wear. You will have a slightly different size to wear as the position of your teeth move and change.

The timeline from initial visit to when you start wearing your clear braces could be a few weeks. The total time wearing them is generally up to 18 months, depending on your treatment plan.

  • Clear aligners generally work more quickly than metal braces.
