As an adult with a less-than-perfect smile, it’s natural to think you “missed the boat” when it came to straighter teeth. However, all is not lost. It’s never too late for a straighter smile! Your teeth can be moved into the correct place no matter your age. More»
If you had braces as a teen, you know there’s nothing quite like the unbridled joy that comes when your braces are finally removed. You’re no longer a socially-awkward teen with a mouthful of metal! Unfortunately, the next step, wearing a retainer, can be almost as challenging. Metal retainers, like braces, are not particularly attractive. They’re tight, they can make speaking awkward, and they’re easy to misplace. If you stopped wearing your retainer shortly after you got your braces off, you’re not alone. 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»

“Straight Talk” from an Orthodontist Who Offers Both – Trying to decide between braces or Invisalign? Choosing between these two options can feel a bit overwhelming. On the one hand, both braces and Invisalign achieve similar end results. They straighten your teeth, support good oral health and help you achieve your dream smile. On the other hand, the process and timeline for each differ.
Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible and can easily be removed for eating and cleaning. Braces, on the other hand, are metal brackets that are glued to your teeth and held together with wires and tiny, rubber bands. Clear and enamel brackets are available, but these options are still not as discreet as Invisalign. More»
Ready to finally take the first step to straighten your teeth? Once you’ve made the decision to achieve your dream smile, it’s natural to be eager to see results as soon as possible. Invisalign, like braces, will straighten your teeth very gradually, so you may not notice a dramatic difference over night. It’s unrealistic to expect to start with Invisalign one week and see results the next. You won’t have to be patient for too long, however! While result speed varies between patients, some patients may begin to notice a subtle difference within 10 to 12 weeks. More»

Now, today’s teens have a new option for straightening teeth and achieving that perfect smile: Invisalign Teen. Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth without the restrictions and embarrassment typically associated with metal braces.
