Invisalign Adult braces

Invisalign Braces

Invisalign braces are the perfect choice for teens and adults in St. Louis who want to straighten their teeth but don’t want to wear traditional braces.

This orthodontic treatment option appeals to many because they are virtually invisible. No one knows you’re wearing them except you!

Benefits of Invisalign

  • They are easier to clean than traditional braces because they are removable.
  • They don’t irritate your cheeks or gums.
  • The trays do not stain.
  • The aligners are numbered and worn for 1 week each, so your time in treatment is well established.
  • You’ll have fewer and less frequent appointments than patients wearing traditional braces.

How Does It Work?

The treatment process uses a series of strong, flexible plastic trays made especially for your mouth. It’s specifically designed to ensure gentle straightening over time.

Depending on the patient, it typically takes less time than traditional braces because the clear aligners are changed every week. On average, the treatment time is 12 months.

What Type of Problems Does Invisalign Correct?

It corrects a variety of orthodontic problems including gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, crowded teeth, open bites, cross bites, and more.

If you have more complex orthodontic issues, Invisalign may not be the best option. However, Cardinal Orthodontics of St. Louis is happy to discuss all treatment options to help you meet your smile goals.
