What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a breakthrough in cosmetic dentistry. It is an orthodontic option that uses clear aligner trays to apply pressure to uneven, crooked, and or misaligned teeth. This is a simple procedure and less time consuming as compared to traditional braces. The aligners or Invisalign are clear transparent plastic trays and are a metal-free, no wiring option. They are almost invisible when been worn, so it is a much-preferred option as compared to traditional metal braces. The best part about these aligner trays is that they can fully be removed to clean teeth properly.

Why do you need Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great option for patients who have crooked, misaligned, or crammed full teeth structure. These transparent very thin trays need to be worn for no less than 22 hours in a day, for the aligners to help apply pressure and push teeth into a more structurally aligned and visually appealing way. Invisalign can also help in the treatment for malocclusion. It is also ideal for teens and adults who need to get their teeth structured better but, at the same time, maintain a more fashionable or professional appearance. The duration of the treatment varies depending on the gravity of the orthodontic problem.
