Invisalign is a system to move and straighten teeth without metal wires and brackets. Invisalign uses clear plastic devices called aligners to move the teeth instead of brackets and wires. This system has been used for nearly 20 years and is a proven method for safely and effectively moving teeth.
Aligners snap over your teeth and each one is slightly different in shape. You wear each aligner for 1-2 weeks before discarding it and wearing the next aligner in the sequence. As you go through the sequence of aligners, they move the teeth into their ideal positions.
Advantages of Invisalign
-There are no dietary restrictions --you can continue to eat the foods you love during treatment.
-You take the aligners out when you eat, so you don’t get food caught everywhere.
-Keeping your teeth clean is easy--you can follow your normal brushing, flossing, and home care routine.
