How Does Invisalign® Work?
The Invisalign® treatment consists of wearing a series of clear aligners that are made specifically for you. Each aligner shifts your teeth closer and closer to your ideal smile. An Invisalign® patient typically changes aligners every week, following the treatment path prepared by your dentist.
Are The Aligners Noticeable?
What distinguishes Invisalign® from traditional orthodontic treatment is the near invisibility of the aligners. Unlike braces, Invisalign® is clear and transparent. That's what makes it an ideal solution for professional adults. The aligners are also removable, so if you need to look your best during an important meeting or appointment simply put your aligner aside and resume wearing it when the time is right.
With Invisalign®, Are Traditional Braces A Thing Of The Past?
Not quite. Invisalign® does a great job at correcting misaligned teeth. However, braces are still the preferred option in cases of severe malocclusion.
