Traditional metal or clear braces are a popular option for children and young teens.

Invisalign is a modern, innovative, and extremely popular option that helps teens and adults finally get the smile they have always wanted.
Invisalign is a type of alternative orthodontic treatment method used to straighten teeth by using a custom-made set of aligners. These aligners are crafted specifically for your mouth. The trays are crafted from comfortable, smooth, and almost completely invisible plastic that you place over your teeth to help align them.
When you wear the aligners. they will gently and gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions. The orthodontist will create the trays to ensure the proper movement is achieved. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about metal brackets or wires that have to be tightened. Every two weeks or so your orthodontist will provide you with a new set of aligners to continue moving the teeth to their desired positions.
