Invisalign is one of the most convenient methods to straighten teeth. Patients can take out the aligners when brushing, flossing, eating, or drinking. The plastic aligners are also gentle on cheeks and gums. The custom-made aligner that is interchanged roughly every two weeks for a period of six to eighteen months, or longer depending on the severity of misalignment.
Similar to a mouth or dental retainer (which is designed to keep teeth from shifting out of place), an Invisalign aligner is used for orthodontic treatment as a technique to move and properly align teeth for a beautiful smile. This clear aligner is usually computer generated from a mold (or impression) of the patient’s teeth. The fitting is unique to each patient.
Invisalign is a great option for treatable dental issues such as crowded teeth, over bite, under bite, cross bite, gap teeth, open bite and the desire to generally have straighter teeth.
