Some people think of braces and other orthodontic care as something that can only happen as a pre-teen or a teenager. The reality is, however, that you can get a better-aligned, healthier, better-looking smile at any age! If you are concerned about avoiding “brace-face” while straightening your smile, we have a solution for you: Invisalign®.

Invisalign® is an orthodontic system which straightens teeth without the use of traditional brackets, bands, and wires. Instead, the Invisalign® system uses durable plastic aligners that gradually shift the teeth into place. Invisalign® appliances, as the name suggests, are so clear as to be practically invisible.This lets you maintain a professional appearance even while straightening your teeth. Additionally, the aligners are removable, letting you move your life forward uninterrupted. Together, these traits make Invisalign® ideal for discreet and effective orthodontic care.

The most important question is, of course: is Invisalign® effective? The answer is: absolutely! They can be equally as effective as braces but without the hassle. Invisalign® aligners can shift teeth horizontally, vertically, and even rotate them if necessary. They can even be used to correct bad bites!

The aligners are completely custom, made specifically for you based on a personalized care plan provided by Dr. Scott Werner. Aligners will be rotated every 1-2 weeks. You will need to see your doctor regularly during your treatment.
