Learn more about Invisalign from your St. Charles dentist.

The Invisalign System is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than metal invisalignbrackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that have been custom-made for your teeth. Dr. John Isbrandt in St. Charles, IL, offers Invisalign for a straighter smile. Read on to find out if Invisalign is appropriate for every age.

Kids & Invisalign

Children can need braces for any number of reasons, including overlapping, overcrowded, crooked teeth or a "bad bite." Most dentists do not recommend Invisalign for children because they do not have a full set of permanent teeth. The Invisalign System does not offer the flexibility that you would have with traditional braces and is not able to address many of the structural bite problems that you might find in younger children.

Teens & Invisalign

Invisalign is popular with teens who are self-conscious about wearing metal braces. With braces, there is a long list of foods your teen shouldn’t eat, from raw carrots to popcorn and apples. With the Invisalign System, there are no restrictions. The removable Invisalign aligners make it easy for your teen to floss and brush your teeth normally to maintain proper oral hygiene. With Invisalign, your teen can also continue playing musical instruments properly, without metal braces getting in the way.

Adults & Invisalign

Invisalign is recommended for adults of all ages. You've probably wanted to have straighter teeth for a while, but at this stage in your adult life, traditional metal braces are not a choice you are willing to consider. The Invisalign System offers you the convenience and flexibility to live life without the hassle associated with metal braces. You will achieve a beautiful smile with little interference in your daily life.
