What is Invisalign?
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the obvious alternative to metal braces. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit each individual. The practically transparent aligners steadily straighten your teeth without the unappealing look of traditional metal braces. Due to the removable nature of the device, brushing your teeth and eating becomes less of a nuisance as with the metal braces.
Invisalign's Average treatment time is less than a year. You should see your orthodontist or dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for gradual fine-tuning and consultations. At regular intervals, you'll receive a new set of custom-fabricated aligners designed to sequentially move teeth to their desired positions. The total number of clear aligners depends on each person and will be determined by your doctor for the course of treatment.
Clear and comfortable
Invisalign offers the benefit of invisibility and comfort, so they don't irritate the soft tissue of your mouth. Invisilign can be easily removed during brushing and eating. Additionally, this convenience will reduce the risk of both cavities and gum disease when compared to traditional braces that often trap food and plaque. With Invisalign, you'll have a beautifully straighter smile without giving up comfort and appearance. If only the Invisalign technology had been discovered sooner, millions of people could have avoided being called "metal mouth!"
