Invisalign is the perfect alternative for those who don’t want to wear metal braces to fix their orthodontic issues. Invisalign can straighten your teeth and correct your bite with aligners that are clear, offering you an aesthetically-pleasing alternative.
Invisalign is the most popular brand name of an orthodontic treatment known as clear aligner treatment. This type of treatment can achieve all the same things that traditional orthodontic treatments can: they straighten your teeth and correct improper bites. But the difference with Invisalign is that you won’t have to wear metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible!
The process starts with an evaluation to see if you are an eligible candidate for Invisalign treatment. Using digital impressions and their unique software, Invisalign can map out a custom treatment plan for you and give you an accurate visual representation of what your teeth will look like after treatment. Once the plan is approved, your aligners will be manufactured in an Invisalign lab. You’ll wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, only taking them out for eating and regular dental hygiene. Over time, your teeth will shift until you have a straight and beautiful smile.
