Metal brackets and wiring can do wonders for a complex or moderate case of malocclusion (crooked or teeth out of place).
For a large majority of patients however, achieving a beautiful smile that is both hygienic, easier to clean, and straight in appearance can be much simpler than they could have ever imagined.
Invisalign may offer a more comfortable solution to orthodontia; due to the minimal footprint of replacing metal bars and wires. Invisalign's series of clear and removable trays can achieve a result much similar to traditional methods.
Patients state they love the ease of removing the trays while eating and brushing, and most friends and relatives can not even tell when patients are wearing the trays throughout the day.
Ask Dr. Nguyen if you would be a great candidate for Invisalign, so he can discuss with you any options that you may want to look into.
