When some of our adult patients think about orthodontic treatment, they believe they are too old because they associate this form of treatment with children and teenagers. This is simply not true! At Seven Star Dental, we are happy to help our adult patients of all ages straighten their teeth with orthodontics. We use Invisalign® to straighten teeth. This is a popular treatment that uses clear aligner trays to slowly transition teeth into the correct alignment. Patients love Invisalign because of the many benefits it provides our adult patients. Some of the benefits patients appreciate are that the trays are removable and they can enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions. We are able to complete the entire Invisalign treatment out of our office, so you do not need to visit an orthodontist. We know that your time is valuable, and this treatment is a time saver for many of our patients.
