Invisalign TrayGetting braces is a right of passage for millions of American children and teenagers. But if you want straighter teeth as an adult, or are a teenager who doesn't want to walk through your high school and social activities with a metallic smile, traditional braces are not an ideal option. But thanks to Invisalign clear aligner trays, you don't have to choose between straighter teeth or a clear smile. Dr. David Fowler, a dentist in Franklin, KY, recommends Invisalign for teenagers and adults looking for a more discreet but effective way to correct common bite and alignment problems for a straighter, healthier smile.

Get Straighter Teeth with Invisalign in Franklin, KY

Invisalign offers a minimally invasive and discreet alternative to braces. The system consists of a set of custom designed, removable plastic aligners that are each worn for approximately two weeks and then replaced by the next tray in the series as your teeth gradually begin to shift into place. The aligners are also removable for up to two hours each day, which allows you to continue to eat the food you like and practice your normal oral hygiene routine for the duration of the treatment, which can average 15 months depending on your situation.

Because the trays are designed from high-grade clear plastic to fit comfortably and securely over your teeth, they are very inconspicuous and allow you maintain your normal routine with minimal disruptions. One of the main reasons that adults and teenagers often give for skipping needed orthodontic treatment is the embarrassment factor and social consequences of wearing braces for up to a two year period. Invisalign helps to make the choice easier, and may even be more affordable in some cases.
