What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible way to improve the appearance and health of your teeth without the use of braces or traditional metal and plastic dental devices and appliances. It is custom molded and computer designed to gently shift your teeth in any direction you choose. The aligners are almost invisible to others and comfortable to wear, even during sleep.
You will be given a series of aligners to wear over a period of time that will slowly move your teeth into place. This is different from traditional metal braces or other appliances since the aligners can be removed for cleaning and eating.
Many patients choose to take them out while sleeping.
The aligners are made of a translucent plastic material that is comfortable to wear and nearly impossible to detect, even when smiling or talking. You can easily place the aligners in your mouth yourself, without the use of any adhesive or dental glue.You should see an improvement every few weeks as your teeth gradually move into their new positions.
Although Invisalign is not a substitute for proper dental healthcare, you should keep up with your regular dental check-ups and maintenance at the same time.
Invisalign has revolutionized dentistry and has allowed us to bring you this new way to improve your smile and your life. This amazing new technology can now correct problems that once would have required painful metal braces or unsightly removable appliances.
Invisalign can also be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss.
