Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that is ideal for teens and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic abnormalities. The Invisalign system uses clear aligners instead of metal brackets and archwires, which makes the treatment virtually invisible to those around you.
Each aligner has a unique shape to help guide the teeth into place. Each new aligner changes slightly in shape, changing the pressure placed on the teeth. After wearing each of the aligners for the recommended period of time, the teeth make it to their final and perfect location.
Invisalign offers many unique benefits to patients. For one thing, the clear aligners are removable therefore, no food is off limits during treatment. Your brushing and flossing routines will also remain unchanged. The aligners are made of a smooth plastic which does not cause irritation to the soft tissues of the mouth. Also, the imaging technology used to plan your customized treatment will also allow you to preview your final results before you the treatment even begins.
Invisalign has been used to treat patients for over 20 years and has proved itself to be an effective and convenient alternative to traditional braces. Talk to your doctor about Invisalign to determine if it is the right choice for you.
