Imagine your life with straighter teeth: would you smile more on first dates? Speak up during company meetings? Carry yourself with confidence wherever you went? Straighter teeth can be life-changing. Unfortunately, many adults fear the price tag associated with teeth straightening is too high. That doesn’t have to be the case. Invisalign is a discreet alternative that uses clear aligners to gently shift your teeth into proper alignment. The cost for Invisalign is similar to the cost of conventional braces.

At Docbraces, our team is committed to helping every patient achieve their dream of a perfect smile. These are three ways our team helps make Invisalign affordable for everyone. More»

For one reason or another, most young adults stop wearing removable retainers. A decade later, that bad habit can catch up with you. Your formerly straight teeth are crooked again. Can Invisalign save the day? Absolutely. More»
