Invisalign – The “Invisible” Alternative to Braces

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment option that is finally giving patients an alternative to traditional braces. If you have been avoiding fixing your alignment issues because you dreaded getting ugly and painful braces, don't worry, there is another option.

Rather than using brackets, wires, and rubber bands, this solution utilizes straighteners made of clear, soft plastic. They are just as effective but nearly invisible and a lot less painful to wear. Plus, you don't have to make changes to your diet or lifestyle. It's finally easy to treat alignment issues thanks to these innovations.

Who's It For?

Invisalign is an option for a large number of patients with alignment issues. It's ideal for teens who need braces but don't want to be seen wearing them. It's great for adults who are embarrassed about their crooked teeth but have avoided fixing them due to the stigma of adult braces. And it's the perfect option for anyone who worries that brackets and wires will prove to be too restrictive or too painful.

However, there are some alignment issues that this solution is not designed to correct. And there are some patients, especially young children, who would be better served by another treatment option. The only way to know for sure if your are a candidate is to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist.

Make sure you see one that has extensive experience with this, and perfectly understands how it can help patients with alignment issues.

Such as The Happy Tooth. Find an office near you.

Why Choose It?

The better question might be “why not choose it” because it has so many advantages. First, it effectively corrects a wide range of alignment issues. And since it does so with clear plastic straighteners, the treatment is nearly invisible to other people, just the opposite of braces.

The straighteners do not irritate the gums or cheeks, and they are often less painful than brackets and wires. Plus, the straightener can be removed when eating, brushing, or flossing to give you the complete use of your natural teeth.

It's the treatment option that doesn't require compromises.

Restore Your Smile the Easy Way

Crooked teeth don't have to hold you back, and neither do braces. This clear aligner solution makes it easy to achieve the smile you want without anyone knowing, and without years of pain and inconvenience. It's the alternative that millions have been searching for.

Your Options

Orthodontics is a long-term relationship that involves very personal interaction. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your orthodontist has a personality and communication style that meshes well with yours. On top of that, he or she needs to have adequate orthodontic experience and training and be well versed in modern technology and procedures.

The Happy Tooth's orthodontic specialists are all members of the American Association of Orthodontists. They have each taken an additional three years of post-graduate work in orthodontics beyond the four years of dental school required to practice general dentistry. You can trust that your smile is in good hands with The Happy Tooth orthodontics.

Both of my daughters have braces at The Happy Tooth. My oldest daughter went thru her braces ordeal over 6 years ago and honestly I would not have recommended a dog to go there for teeth care. So I was concerned when my youngest required braces as well. My fears were unfounded. New staff.. Very professional and welcoming for the parents and children. The staff before would not allowed parents to go back with their children but now they have no problem with it at all. Kudos for great staff.. Welcoming environment. Thank you for treating us as people and not just cash in your pocket as the previous staff did.

AWESOME STAFF!!! As soon as you walk in you are greeted with a smile and hello!! Everyone is helpful and patient!!! I personally had a miscommunication issue about an appt. When I called about it I was immediately the PRIORITY!! The manager..Kim...took my call and immediately addressed the issue...she was very professional and most apologetic for the entire staff!!! It was just a simple mix up and she went above and beyond to make sure things were fixed and rescheduled and I honestly HAVE NVR came across any manager that was so involved in a resolution and my satisfaction!!! At (this) Happy Tooth...you are not treated like a patient...they treat and respect you like family and friends!!!! Kudos to all the staff!!! Jobs well done guys!!! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!!!! 👐😁😉👍👏

I had a wonderful time at Happy Tooth. My experience with Happy Tooth was amazing. I will like to thank everyone that help me on my journey, such as Missy, Alisha, Orlando, Frankie, Dr. Ruth, and my favorite Janet. These people made my experience smooth, easy, and quick. The Happy Tooth crew is best. I had many great years with them and this day was awesome. I got my braces off and I'm the happiest person on the planet.

I've been a patient at Happy Tooth for nearly two years and I love everybody there!! Everyone is so kind to me and they're always so energetic. They did a great job with my teeth, I love them! I would definitely recommend this place to people out there who want a little fix to their teeth. Other than that, if I were to choose who my favorite staff member is, it would be Orlando!! He's too kind and always manages to put a smile on my face with his jokes! 🙂

I'm currently a patient at happy tooth and they have done an amazing job on my teeth and friends and family of mine that have past experience at the happy tooth. I have to say I enjoy being around every employee that works there. They are always so kind to me and give me the best experience when going to my appointments. Janet is always so helpful at the front desk and explains everything so thoroughly to me when I ask questions and so does the doctor and everyone in the back working on me and others teeth. If I had to recommend anyone that needed braces to an orthodontist it would have to be this one. I love The Happy Tooth and wouldn't have traded this experience for anything.
