Why Invisalign® Is a Good Choice for Pittsburgh Adults and Teens

Get Invisalign for your Whole Family

We often have patients ask us, “What are the advantages of Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®?” There are quite a few reasons that we give them. We explain that it’s a great orthodontic appliance that’s popular with both kids and adults, that it’s just as effective as metal braces, that it’s nearly invisible (hence the name “Invisalign,” and that it’s removable, too. Let’s break it down, reason by reason:

Pittsburgh’s Orthodontic Choice: Invisalign®

  • It’s great for both adults and kids. Adults choose Invisalign because it’s discreet and can be removed when eating or drinking. Teens love this treatment because no one can tell that you’re wearing them! Plus, the Invisalign Teen System comes with six extra aligners in case they’re misplaced.
  • It resolves many dental issues. Just like traditional metal braces, these aligners are designed to remedy a number of problems with the mouth, teeth, and jaw. Invisalign can fix crowded and spaced teeth, as well as overbites, underbites, and cross bites. Plus, it’s great for adults. They’ve likely had more dental work, such as cavities and crowns, that Invisalign treatment can easy handle without harming previous work.
  • You can see the progress. You can see what your teeth will look like at the end of the Invisalign process—even before you begin treatment! Using a combination of x-rays and measurements that are programmed into a computer, you’ll be able to see the finished result that you’ll look forward to.
  • It’s nearly invisible. Our patients can’t believe what they see (or don’t see) when they put on their first set of aligners. They’re made of strong, clear plastic that’s custom molded to your teeth using state-of-the-art 3D technology. To ensure that your treatment stays on course, you must wear them at least 22 hours a day—yet no one will know.
  • They’re removable. If you are going to eat or drink, just pop them out and place them in a case. You can also take them out when you’re getting ready to brush, floss, and use mouthwash. If you play a contact sport, just take them out before you start, put your sport mouthguard in, and then put your aligners back in when you’re done.
  • They can be financed. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen can be financed through payment plans, CareCredit, major credit cards, and medical and dental insurance.

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. Babb is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. Babb on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. Babb is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
