About Invisalign

Invisalign is great at what it does, but there are certain situations where it doesn’t work as effectively as traditional braces. The biggest determinant of whether or not Invisalign is right for you is what you would like fixed and the severity of your case. Invisalign is geared towards moderate cases, and is not as effective at fixing severe issues that would normally require more advanced orthodontic procedures to correct them.
