Do you need braces? Have you been wondering what kind of braces is best for you? There are a number of different types of braces available, but one of the most popular types is Invisalign® clear plastic braces. They offer a lot of advantages over traditional metal braces, but they are not for every situation.

Where Invisalign braces really shine is in discretion and convenience. Since the aligner trays are made of clear plastic, it can be very hard to tell that you’re even wearing braces. This is a great benefit to adults who need straighter teeth but don’t want to advertise that they’re wearing braces.

The convenience factor is also important. While most braces are permanently attached to your teeth for the duration of the treatment, the aligning trays for Invisalign are removable, making it easy to eat your favorite foods and to keep your daily brushing routine.

There are some situations that Invisalign is not good for, though. Traditional braces are better at correcting twisted teeth or changing the height of teeth. Invisalign braces have a harder time of that. Our orthodontist, Dr. Merissa Blais will help you to determine which system is best for your situation.
