Invisalign is the clear leader of this revolutionary technology, which uses a series of clear removable aligners to gradually move your teeth as a custom-made plan for each patient. The movement is planned very precisely by using highly sophisticated three-dimensional computer technology. These comfortable aligners are virtually invisible so that can barely tell you are wearing them. This allows you to smile without apparent brackets during your treatment!
Benefits of Invisalign
- The Invisalign aligners are not only “invisible” but very comfortable
- They can be removed to eat, drink and clean your teeth
- They do not have metal components that may irritate the mouth
- You can see, even before the start of treatment, final corrections programmed with the use of computer programs that estimate what your smile will look like after treatment.
Invisalign braces, what is it?
In fact, it is a dental … transparent device. A lot of adults use this method because it is discreet and allows you to correct the position of your teeth without metal brakets.
Invisalign is in the form of aligner trays which clip onto the teeth. Every two weeks, you change the aligners, and approximately every six weeks you make a monitoring visit to the orthodontist.
If there is insufficient space in the jaw, the crooked teeth can develop what is called dental crowding. Without treatment, the teeth position can grow increasingly distorted causing plaque build-up, which is difficult to remove and the teeth may be compromised
Invisalign is used only to straighten teeth, it cannot fix issues of misaligned jaws. Therefor traditional braces may be necessary if the two jaw bones do not line up properly, if there is an over or under bite, or if your orthodontist decides you need more than just straightening teeth.
