I Think I Need Braces, What are my Options?
When Marie Antoinette -the 18th Century Queen of France- had crooked teeth, she didn’t have a lot of choices. A court physician was called in to correct the problem. He performed three months of painful surgeries and then installed heavy, medieval wire braces to yank her smile in place. These were the dark ages of cosmetic dentistry and thankfully, they are behind us. Invisalign is a comfortable and practically invisible method of repairing your smile. Instead of affixing metal brackets and wires directly onto your teeth, it utilizes a series of clear aligners to address dental issues.
Invisalign can be used to correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that are overcrowded or spaced too far apart
- An overbite, overjet, underbite, or crossbite
- An open bite, when teeth are unable to completely close together
