If you are suffering from misaligned or crooked teeth, but you don’t want to wear metal braces, Invisalign may be the answer for you. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that work to straighten teeth over time.
Compared to traditional metal braces, most patients find that Invisalign is more comfortable. They are made of smooth plastic with no metal or wires. Another benefit of Invisalign is that they can be removed to eat and brush. Aligners are to be worn at least 20-22 hours per day.
Here’s how Invisalign works:
You will receive a set of custom-made clear aligners.
You change to the next in the series approximately every two weeks
Teeth are gently shifted over time.
Invisalign can be used for a wide variety of orthodontic issues, including:
- Gapped Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Bite Issues
Invisalign are virtually invisible. The aligners work gently as they have been engineered to put the right amount force to create optimal results with the least discomfort.
