So, what’s all the fuss about Invisalign? Well, read on and you’ll soon understand why it’s become the most popular option for adults who are looking to straighten their teeth with invisible braces.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign are clear, removable retainers that are custom-made to quickly but gently move teeth into their ideal position without interfering in your everyday life. Once placed in the mouth, Invisalign are almost invisible, with no metal wires or brackets on show so no-one is even likely to notice you’re wearing them.
Invisalign also allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before treatment even begins, so you can see exactly how your teeth are expected to look when treatment is complete.
Who is it for?
Ideal for adults who may be self-conscious about undergoing orthodontic treatment, Invisalign are discreet and convenient, as you can remove them for special occasions. They are also a very hygienic treatment option, because the aligners can be removed when eating, brushing and flossing, making it much easier to maintain good overall oral health.
Invisalign is designed to help straighten only fully grown adult teeth, so it is not a suitable treatment for children or for more complex orthodontic problems. However, your dentist will quickly be able to recommend if Invisalign is the right solution for you.

Not really. They are made of thin, clear plastic, so someone would have to be very close indeed to notice them!
Yes. The aligners are removable, which is great for maintaining oral hygiene and also for the occasional special social or professional occasion.
We recommend you only drink cold water with the aligners in place and remove them for eating or drinking anything else.
You may notice a slight lisp when you first wear them, but this should disappear once you’ve adapted to having the plastic in your mouth.
Simple - just remove them from your mouth and gently brush with water.
It very much depends on your individual case, but treatment can usually be completed within a year.

I'm afraid of the dentist

I'm having a hard time chewing
Chewing problems can be caused by bad teeth, missing teeth, or poor-fitting dentures. It can be impossible to enjoy your favorite foods with damaged teeth and diseased gums. Many denture wearers also complain of not being able to eat the foods they love and being restricted to a certain type of diet, not to mention the constant worry of losing their teeth in the middle of dinner or conversation.
If your teeth or dentures are affecting your diet and reducing your quality of life, it’s time to see Dr Mickey Frankl. Whether it’s one missing tooth or a mouth in need of complex reconstruction, Dr Frankl has the skills and expertise to bring back your chewing ability and make you feel better about yourself. We provide several implant solutions for missing teeth, including fixed permanent teeth and dental implants.
I'm embarrassed to smile
Are you embarrassed to smile because of bad or missing teeth? You’re not alone. Many people hide their mouths behind their hands or smile timidly because they are self-conscious about their teeth. Whatever the reason (neglect, trauma or disease), you don’t have to suffer in silence. You can smile confidently again with the help of New Albany dentist Dr Mickey Frankl.
Dr Mickey Frankl truly understands what it’s like to have dental problems and the embarrassment that goes along with it. This is why he focuses on improving not just your teeth, but your overall appearance. Missing teeth can make your face look sunken in, adding years to your real age. Our cosmetic dental procedures are designed to make you look even better over time.
Our clinic provides life-changing cosmetic dentistry and Dr Frankl and his talented team treat problems that range from the simple (failing teeth) to the complex (full mouth rehabilitation). Treatment begins with a friendly conversation about what you want to achieve with your teeth, and ends with a solution that you are completely happy with.
