WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable Aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research, and in orthodontic and dental practices worldwide.
Aligners — an alternative to traditional braces for adults, serial aligners are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. Aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Patients wear each set of Aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As the patient replaces each Aligner with the next in the series, their teeth move—little by little, week by week—until they have straightened to the final position the orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. Patients visit their orthodontist or dentist once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that treatment is progressing as planned.
