By Blog, Orthodontics No Comments

I love dentists! Okay, full disclosure, as an El Dorado Hills orthodontist, I am technically a dentist and I went to dental school.

Traditional braces are an awesome treatment option and a lot of patients love them but many older teens and adults gravitate towards under-the-radar orthodontic solutions like clear aligners. For some, it’s because they worry brackets and wires don’t look professional and for others, they just don’t want to draw attention to their smile when they’re already self conscious about it. I get that! It’s why Invisalign became so popular and has been the go-to alternative to braces for years.
