Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth using aligners instead of braces. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing, and you can still eat and drink what you want. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth since there are no wires, metal or brackets.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to their final positions. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
In addition to the fact that they are virtually invisible and removable, they are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Furthermore, Invisalign is proven to make your mouth healthier than ever before since it protects your smile from harmful debris and decay and grants you the ability to maintain normal oral hygiene habits.
