Ocean Avenue Dentistry offers Invisalign®, which is a particularly good option for adults who never had their teeth straightened as teenagers. Invisalign uses aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. This process works like traditional braces without the unwieldy metal brackets and wires that require tightening. Invisalign is an optimal solution for adults and teenagers alike because it provides all the benefits of traditional braces without any of the downsides. Traditional braces can cause pain, discomfort, mouth sores, injuries, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, and difficulty eating. Invisalign allows you to pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until treatment is complete.
