Invisalign aligner trays can help you straighten your teeth inconspicuously. Sometimes referred to as “invisible braces,” “clear braces,” “adult braces,” or “adult orthodontics,” Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
If you have always wanted to straighten your natural smile, but were hesitant to wear braces, Invisalign might be the right cosmetic dentistry solution for you. With clear aligners worn over your teeth, you can have the straighter, healthier smile you want within a matter of months.
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, images and photos will be taken of your teeth in order to have your Invisalign aligners custom made. These smooth, plastic aligners are made from BPA-free plastic and will fit precisely over your teeth. You will only remove the aligners for meals and your daily dental hygiene routine.
Every two weeks, you will trade out your aligners for a new set. Each set is made to slowly move your teeth toward the final desired position. You will need to make an appointment about every six to eight weeks to ensure that your teeth are progressing as planned. The entire process, usually takes about twelve to fifteen months, but can vary by individual case. Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there is no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all that you are wearing braces at all – unless you tell them!
Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient way to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. The Invisalign system allows you to continue with your everyday activities without being inconvenienced or hindered by traditional braces.
