Modern Orthodontic Treatment Option

Invisalign® is a modern way to straighten your teeth with clear braces rather than having a mouth full of metal. The clear, removable aligners are easy to clean, virtually invisible, and allow you to eat whatever you want! The discreet nature of these clear aligners allows patients to avoid the uncomfortable, self-conscious feelings often associated with traditional metal braces. In addition, the ability to eat your favorite foods without having to worry about breaking off a bracket and schedule a trip to the orthodontist is truly remarkable. Patients also love the fact that they can brush and floss their teeth just as thoroughly as always since the aligners are removable. Dr. Jacqueline Subka offers this orthodontic solution to both teen and adult patients looking to straighten misaligned teeth.
