Are you an adult looking to correct your teeth, but don’t want traditional metal braces? Invisalign® may be a solution for you!
Why choose Invisalign versus traditional braces?
Braces aren’t just for kids and teens anymore. We are seeing more adults and teens who want orthodontic treatment—without conventional metal braces. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth into alignment through a series of custom-made, removable aligners (essentially, clear braces that are plastic retainers). With Invisalign removable aligners, you can remove the aligners for short periods of time in professional settings, for photos, to eat, and to brush and floss easily. Invisalign clear aligners also allow you to eat what you want (after removing the aligners), whereas traditional braces require being careful about eating chewy, sticky or very hard foods.
However, Invisalign isn't for everyone. It is a viable option for those with mild to moderate crowding. Treatment with Invisalign is not as effective as traditional braces in cases where teeth are severely crowded or misaligned, or where there’s a significant overbite. During your free consultation with a First Choice treatment coordinator, we’ll determine if Invisalign is a good choice for you.
Choose a certified, experienced orthodontist who can ensure you’ll achieve the straight, healthy smile you’re looking for with Invisalign or another type of braces.
“Do-it-yourself” teeth straightening equipment can do serious, lasting damage to your teeth and gums that can be expensive to fix. Unlike mail-order appliances, every Invisalign treatment begins with an in-person consultation with an orthodontist that considers your entire dental health—and the results are often better.

Gum disease is more common that you might think. If you’re 30-years-old or older, you might be one of the 40% of adults who suffer from periodontal or “gum” disease, an infection that weakens the tissues and bone that support your teeth. Read More

This year marks an anniversary that most people in Dane County don’t know anything about—but it’s one that almost all of us can be thankful for. Because back in 1948, Dane County started adding fluoride to our municipal water supply. And while that may not seem like a big deal, studies prove that people who live and grow in communities with fluoridated water experience less tooth decay. A simple, cost effective way to help everyone have heathier teeth? At First Choice Dental, we think that’s something to celebrate. Read More

In summer we wedge in appointments for the kids; a physical for fall sports, an eye exam, plus a semi-annual dental cleaning and checkup. And this could be the summer your kid embraces braces. There’s something about your kids orthodontics that triggers deeply held emotions! Are you old enough to remember those coming-of-age 80s movies where some awkward teenager sat on the bus sporting what appeared to be full-body orthodontia? Did those scenes or the warnings of being locked forever in your first kiss with another metal mouth deter you from getting braces as a kid? Read More
