Millions of adults in the United States are in need of some kind of orthodontic treatment. However, many never get the help they need because they are embarrassed of braces. Teenagers also tend to feel this way, but a larger number of their peers usually have braces concurrently. If you will be the only person in your office with braces, you might feel like reconsidering teeth straightening.

Fortunately, there are many options for more aesthetic orthodontic treatment. One of the most popular is Invisalign®. Invisalign ditches the traditional metal brackets and instead uses a series of discreet, custom-made clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth over time. It can be employed to fix a wide array of orthodontic problems, including crooked or crowded teeth, large gaps between teeth, and even over- or underbite issues.

Traditional braces can not only be unattractive, they can also be quite uncomfortable. They can sometimes cause sores in the mouth, and can make eating difficult. Invisalign eliminates these problems. By using clear aligners that fit closely to your teeth, the bulky structure of traditional braces is done away with. They are also removable, so eating, brushing, and flossing are all unhindered. Most people won’t even know you are receiving orthodontic treatment.

If you have been considering orthodontic treatment but are hesitant because of the bulk and appearance of braces, we invite you to consider Invisalign. Please give Dido Kim a call to talk to Dr. Dido Kim about whether Invisalign is right for you.
