One of the most recommended alternatives to traditional braces, Invisalign clear orthodontics are growing in popularity with patients. They are clear removable aligners that do not use metal or wires, providing a comfortable, gentle, and virtually invisible way of straightening teeth.
Invisalign clear braces work by having impressions of teeth made. This allows for the BPA-free plastic aligner to be created and fit accurately over the existing teeth. In contrast to mouth guards, the Invisalign aligners are designed to gently restore the teeth into their desired, proper position.
Every two weeks, the current aligner will be removed and exchanged for the next set. Each set moves the teeth gently until they reach their proper, final position. The distinct benefit of Invisalign is that the progress can be observed. After a year, patients can see a dramatic shift in their teeth, which completes a perfect smile restoration.
Invisalign is recommended for the following issues:
- Crooked teeth
