Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment system that works to straighten teeth through the use of a series of virtually unperceivable aligners. Invisalign® clear braces eliminate the metallic smile that is characteristic of traditional orthodontic braces.
Treatment consists of a series of aligners, switched out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign® system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist or orthodontist, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits.
Benefits of Invisalign®
The most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® is that patients can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. Most adults would rather live with crooked teeth than spend two or more years with unsightly metal braces.
The Invisalign® system also boasts improved hygiene over traditional braces. Because the aligners are removable, patients can brush and floss as they normally would. Food and drink choices are less restrictive, as well. If patients wish to eat sticky candy or drink soda, they can simply remove their aligners and enjoy.
