You Can Smile Again with Invisalign®

Having a straight smile doesn’t take years, and it won’t with Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a series of clear plastic aligners, much like teeth whitening trays that you wear for 22 hours each day removing when you eat, drink, and sleep.

Unlike those online braces that seem to be popping up on social media feeds everywhere, a licensed and preferred provider monitors your new clear braces.

What is Invisalign®?

As previously mentioned, the clear braces system is a customized clear braces system that is made to fit your teeth. Depending on your blueprint, you will wear between 11 and 31 sets of aligners. The clear aligners gradually push your teeth into the desired position, which on average takes between 12 and 18 months.

Is Invisalign® Suitable for Everyone?

While invisible braces are suitable for almost everyone you will need a licensed and preferred provider to make sure.

Dr. Janice Lo is an experienced provider who will make sure you are a good candidate for invisible braces. If your teeth are severely tipped or tilted, or if you have a prominent under or over bite, conventional wires and brackets may be a better fit for you and your smile.

Invisalign® Versus Conventional Wires and Brackets

If you are deciding between conventional braces and clear plastic aligners, Dr. Lo recommends that you do your research, especially if you are a good candidate for clear braces.

Also, everyone will know you are having your teeth straightened. Braces can be uncomfortable and downright painful at times as well. It is also important to remember that treatment time for braces is 18 to 24 months as opposed to 12 to 18 months time for clear braces from Invisalign®.
