Invisalign® clear aligners are a fantastic alternative to straighten teeth without traditional metal type orthodontic braces.
What is Invisalign®
Invisalign® involves a series of clear plastic aligners, each custom designed and fabricated to work in a special sequence with one another. The Invisalign® system can correct crooked teeth without having such an impact on your quality of life the way traditional braces do. You can eat the foods that you like, smile with confidence, maintain your oral health, and enjoy peace of mind knowing that the solution to your misaligned teeth is unobtrusive to your lifestyle. This is the perfect solution for many adults who have always wanted to straighten their teeth.
Dr Chris Lauf has been accredited with Invisalign since 2008, and creates many beautiful smiles for people of Brisbane in this way. In his experience, normal braces are best for teens though Invisalign may be considered in some cases. We invite you to speak with us more about your teen’s orthodontic options.
