Would you like to wear braces but think they are too noticeable? Well, you may have a proven alternative. It's the Invisalign system of clearInvisalign aligners offered by Kwong Orthodontics in Portage, MI. Dr. Thomas Kwong qualifies adult and teen patients for these invisible appliances, correcting a large array of mild to moderate alignment and bite issues. Learn about the many advantages of Invisalign so you can decide it's right for you.


Invisalign clear aligners are almost invisible

Made from proprietary Smart Track acrylic, the 18 to 30 aligner pairs in a typical treatment plan are easy in and easy out. Yes, they are removable! They resemble very thin teeth whitening trays and are engineered to shift teeth into positions which look and function better.

There are no brackets, rubber bands or wires to break or entangle with your favorite foods. Remove your aligners, and eat whatever you like. Brush, floss and clean your aligners, and replace them. In all, you wear the appliances 20 to 22 hours a day to stay on pace with your individualized care plan.


Who qualifies for Invisalign Clear Aligners?

You likely do if you have a mild to moderate smile alignment problem and good oral health. However, children and people with complicated bite and jaw issues cannot use these clear braces. At Kwong Orthodontics in Portage, Dr. Kwong will evaluate you and help you decide on a treatment plan.


Advantages of Invisalign Clear Aligners

Your Invisalign aligners can treat your orthodontic issues predictably, reliably, and precisely, whether you have bite problems (malocclusion), gaps, crowding, tooth tipping, overjet, or something else. Patients really enjoy the aligners':

  • Discreet appearance (no one can tell you have them on)
  • Comfort (no sharp edges or jagged wires)
  • Removability for hygiene, meals, and special events
  • Quick treatment time (about one year, half the average treatment time of conventional metal, ceramic, or lingual braces)
  • Precision crafting according to modern iTero scans and exacting Invisalign lab standards
  • Progress checks spaced four to six weeks apart
