Invisalign® clear aligners have taken the orthodontic world by storm. They have made it possible for hundreds of thousands of people to align their teeth without drawing attention to metal braces attached to the front of their teeth. Here are the things that you should know when considering Invisalign braces:

• Removable- easier to maintain oral hygiene, can eat what you want, take out for sports and playing instruments
• Virtually Invisible- more aesthetic than metal braces and clear braces
• Comfortable- no wires or brackets against the inside of your mouth
• 3-D simulation- video gives patient an idea of the treatment goal prior to starting treatment and may be a motivating factor
• Fewer Emergencies- no poking wires or broken brackets
• FDA approved material- safe and no concern over metal allergies
• Treatment of choice- for certain malocclusions, it may produce a better result in a shorter amount of time
• Trouble fixing large gaps, severely rotated teeth, and large over- or underbites
• Often more expensive than traditional braces
• Require removal for eating anything except water
• You may develop a temporary lisp while getting used to them
