An individual with malocclusion has crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. Many adults have long wanted to have straighter teeth, but have not done so because they do not want to mar the beauty of their smile. If this sounds familiar, ask Dr. Michael Jacobsen about how Invisalign® in Victorville, California, can help you reach a straight smile. Invisalign is a set of aligners that is designed specifically for your smile. They are worn over the teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day to gently straighten the smile. Every week or two, you will receive the next set of aligners to further your straightening treatment.

Straightening your teeth with Invisalign has many benefits, like:

The Cosmetic Alternative to Adult Braces
Invisalign uses virtually invisible plastic to straighten your teeth. Most people will not even realize that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Proper Oral Hygiene
Properly cleaning crooked teeth can be very difficult. Missing plaque and food particles often happens when the teeth aren’t properly aligned. Straight teeth are much easier to care for. In addition, Invisalign aligners are removable, so cleaning your teeth is much easier with Invisalign than with braces.

Eat What You Like
There are no food restrictions with Invisalign, so you can continue to chew gum and eat popcorn, whole apples, and all the other foods that you love.
