Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that provides the benefits of braces without metal and wires. Invisalign clear aligners can correct a wide variety of orthodontic issues including crooked teeth, crowding, gaps and bite issues.
Invisalign clear aligners are made to fit snugly over the teeth and are virtually invisible. They are custom-made for each patient using a scan of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks, and then you will move on to the next aligner in the series. Aligners are worn for a minimum of 20- 22 hours per day and are only removed to eat, brush and floss. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly and applies just the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. Each case is different, but on average, Invisalign treatment lasts about one to two years.
Invisalign offers many advantages when compared to traditional metal braces. The aligners can be removed allowing you to eat and drink what you like without limitations. You can brush and floss normally making it much easier to keep teeth and gums healthy during treatment. Best of all, when you choose Invisalign to correct your teeth, it’s virtually impossible for others to notice! Invisalign is also a great option for athletes as they do not present the same injury risks as metal braces.
