A Braceless Alternative to Metal Braces

Brochu Orthodontics is pleased to offer our patients the option of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is clear, removable and comfortable. This treatment option is used for a multitude of orthodontic issues, and are extremely beneficial to patients. The transparency of the aligners allows you to smile with confidence, while the ability to remove the aligners grants you the free will to eat whichever foods you would like.

Invisalign, while an alternative to braces, takes the same approach to straightening teeth. Every four to six weeks, you will visit your orthodontist and receive a new, modified Invisalign aligner. The average treatment time is about a year long, and will fix several orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowding- not enough room for all of your teeth
  • Spacing- gaps between teeth
  • Over bite- protruding upper teeth
  • Under bite- protruding lower teeth
  • Deep bite- upper front teeth hide the lower teeth
  • Open bite- vertical spacing between the front teeth

Wearing the Invisalign aligners will gradually shift your teeth along the exact course that your orthodontist has planned out for you. The smooth plastic aligners simply go over your teeth, making it easy and pain-free to wear Invisalign during your everyday schedule.
