For teens and adults who want to avoid wearing brackets and wires at all, Dr. Lathrop may recommend Invisalign® — a system of clear aligners that offers mild functional orthodontic treatment in a highly discreet and convenient manner. Invisalign® consists of a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners designed to progressively guide crooked teeth into straighter positions. The aligners are also temporarily removable to make eating and brushing/flossing your teeth simpler and less time-consuming. Patients who underwent orthodontic treatment as young children and have relapsed, or who experience mild to moderate tooth misalignment, are often ideal candidates for Invisalign® clear aligners.
