As anyone who’s ever been saddled with a midnight toothache surely knows, dental emergencies don’t abide by a fixed schedule. That’s because, like all medical emergencies, tooth-related problems are impossible to predict in every single instance.

Back in the day, this meant resorting to rather unseemly braces that were effective but nevertheless caught the eye in a none-too-pleasing fashion.
Fortunately, in this day and age, a technology called Invisalign® exists that ensures optimum tooth correction without drawing any attention to itself. If you’re interested in having straight teeth but aren’t sure how to go about doing so, let’s examine the four main reasons why Invisalign® aligners might be the perfect choice for you: (more…)
