If you are someone looking to straighten your teeth without unsightly metal braces, Invisalign may be right for you. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are made of a thermoplastic material custom-made to move your teeth in increments just like metal braces. Using a series of aligners, Invisalign can straighten your teeth with 75% more predictability. With Invisalign, the process is more gentle and pain-free than traditional metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners can effectively treat a wide variety of dental cases, including crowding, spacing, cross bite and overbite.
Patients wear each aligner set for about 2 weeks, removing it only for eating, brushing and flossing. Visits to the orthodontist are generally scheduled at six-week intervals. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will move gradually until the end of treatment
Unlike the early days of Invisalign, the procedure is incredibly effective for adults, but children as well. In fact, according to the 2014 Invisalign Teen Confidence study, teens with Invisalign treatment are two times more likely to have a boost in self-esteem than those with braces.
Invisalign has many advantages over traditional braces. They are removable, allowing you to eat normally without dietary restrictions, plus brush and floss just as you always do.
