Invisalign® is a modern alternative to straighten your teeth without wires or metal. Invisalign® involves a computerized treatment plan that generates a series of custom trays designed specifically to move your teeth in an optimal manner. The trays are made from a smooth plastic that covers your teeth and gradually moves them into place.
Unlike braces, there are no brackets to tighten or difficult wires to maneuver around as you try to brush and floss or eat. Instead, you wear the trays for approximately 22 hours a day and are able to take them out when you eat food or clean your teeth.
Typically trays are changed every two weeks. Invisalign® is a popular choice for straightening because it involves minimal disturbance to your daily routine or appearance. The trays are difficult to see and most people will have no idea you are wearing them.
