Am I a good candidate for braces? That’s a question that more and more people are asking themselves. Teeth straightening can be a daunting task. Many adults believe that the time for braces is behind them, and they are stuck with the smile they have. Younger people may be put off by the dreaded metal-mouth. Many times it is possible to do and the process does not require wearing permanently affixed metal brackets.
The Invisalign system uses a series of custom made mouthpieces (called “aligners”) to gradually shift your teeth to their ideal position in the jaw. Results can usually take from about six months to a year to obtain.
