traditional braces is the lack of convenience they offer to the users. You can’t remove them, you can’t hide them when you’re in an important meeting, you’re stuck in them during some of the biggest occasions of your life (dating, wedding, ect…), and they can be painful. Really, when it gets right down to it, I can totally see why people would be wary of adult braces.
That’s where Invisalign braces come in.
Invisalign serves as the convenient solution to adult brace-wearing needs. Have a wedding you’re going to be in? No problem! You can wear your Invisalign braces without anyone being any the wiser.

Using clear, custom designed, aligners, Invisalign takes away painful metal braces and tough cemented teeth. Instead, your aligners will be smooth, comfortable, and virtually pain-free throughout the entire process. Will you feel some level of discomfort as your teeth shift? Most likely, but without the added metal, you’re mouth will remain in tip-top shape.
Yes, oral hygiene can go out the window with braces. Because traditional metal braces cover the majority of your teeth, they put
