Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made aligner trays. The custom trays are smooth clear plastic trays that you wear continuously except when eating and drinking. Wearing your trays will gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. Every two weeks you will insert a new set of trays to further the process of your invisalign treatment. Not all patients are Invisalign candidates and may need traditional orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth.
Invisalign is a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. However, the computer program, which can generate a series of aligners with small changes is the new part. Invisalign is recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
