Can I use Invisalign instead of Braces?

This is a very common question in our office. Our goal is to use the type of orthodontic appliance our patients request. If you want to utilize Invisalign, we are always excited to help you with this. Many cases respond quite well to the Invisalign method when it is properly set up by an orthodontic specialist.

Alignment (straightening) of crooked teeth and closing of spaces between teeth respond wonderfully to Invisalign trays. We would love to show you a book displaying some of our many finished cases. The results are amazing.
Changes to the bite are more challenging in some patients and Invisalign may not be the best choice. We will always let you know what bite changes to expect if you choose Invisalign. Some children are better suited for braces because the parents think they will not be able to wear the Invisalign trays full time. Loss of the trays is a concern some parents may have as well.
Dr. Hechler is always happy to discuss any treatment options that are available to you. Our goal is to leave you with the most beautiful smile and functional bite possible. Keep smiling!!
