Straight Up: Trusted Folsom, CA Orthodontist Offers Invisible Braces
It used to be that you needed to wear metal braces, even if you had a moderate case of teeth misalignment, to achieve a beautiful smile. Such a cumbersome appliance, however, can affect a person’s appearance and interfere with everyday functions like speaking and chewing. These days, an orthodontist in Folsom, CA, Dr. Robert Kelleher can now attach ‘invisible’ plastic aligners that get your teeth straightened withoutthe awkwardness traditionally associated with braces. Invisible braces such as Invisalign® use a custom-made series of aligners consisting of smooth, comfortable plastic that is worn over the teeth. There are none of those metal brackets or wires that come with regular braces. The clear "braces" (aligner trays) gradually and gently shift teeth into place, just as regular braces would do.
