What is Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners are a tremendous treatment option for patients who want to experience the benefits of standard braces without metal or wires. Invisalign treatment provides remarkable performance in correcting certain dental problems such as crooked teeth, spacing issues, overbites, underbites and crossbites. By simply wearing a clear Invisalign aligner over the teeth for at least 20-22 hours per day, a patient can achieve beautifully straightened teeth, giving them with the confidence they need to show-off their smile to others.
How does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment works by having the patient wear a series of custom clear aligners. Approximately, every two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with a new one. Each new aligner will slightly adjust the positioning of the patient’s teeth until the desired results are achieved.
Invisalign vs braces
There are several advantages that Invisalign aligners offer over traditional metal braces. Their ability to be taken out at any time is extremely convenient, and it allows patients to eat and drink whatever they like during treatment, while also maintaining their usual oral hygiene habits. Invisalign aligners are clear, making them almost invisible to others. Invisalign aligners are also an ideal option for patients who play contact sports since they do not present the same injury risks as metal braces.
