Ofttimes, people assume that orthodontic treatment must be completed during your pre-teen or teenage years. But what if you missed out on getting braces during that time? Are you stuck with a crooked smile for the rest of your life? The answer is a resounding “No!” You can get a healthier, straighter, easier-to-clean smile at any age!

If you require or desire a professional look while you straighten your teeth, consider Invisalign®. Rather than using traditional bands, brackets, and wires, the discreet Invisalign® system uses completely custom, completely clear plastic aligners, which gradually shift teeth into place.

Invisalign® is an excellent option for adult orthodontic care, as the aligners are so clear as to be nearly invisible. They are also removable,which allows your life to continue uninterrupted. The series of aligners is constructed specifically for you, with each individual aligner completely customized to your smile. Dr. Golgoun Habibi will design your care plan.

But, do they work? Yes! Invisalign® aligners can shift teeth horizontally, vertically, or even rotate the teeth if necessary. They can also correct malocclusion, or “bad bites.” Invisalign® aligners are just as effective as braces are–without the hassle.

Aligners will be rotated every 1-2 weeks, and you will see you dentist regularly during the course of treatment.
