Invisalign works well for many patients looking to improve the appearance or function of their smiles. If you are an adult or older teen who suffers from overcrowding, overlapping, or misaligned teeth that make you feel self-conscious about your smile, Invisalign may be right for you.

Because Invisalign uses convenient, clear aligner trays to gradually move your teeth into a more esthetic and functional position, your treatment will be both discreet and convenient.

You can remove your aligner trays to eat, brush, and floss your teeth. It makes orthodontic care easier than ever. Of course, compliance is the key to success when it comes to orthodontic care. Wearing your trays for at least 22 hours per day, maintaining regular exams, and wearing a retainer after your treatment will all help you achieve the best results possible.

For some complex cases involving your occlusion or a significant amount of treatment, you might receive better results from traditional orthodontics. The best way to find out if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you is to call our St. Peters, MO dental office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Cynthia Blalock. She will help you achieve the smile of your dreams!
