Invisalign is a great alternative for people who do not like the appearance of braces. Removable aligners are almost invisible and this makes it a very popular option for both teens and adults.
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
Treatment involves wearing a series of aligners which are changed 10-14 days. As patients replace their aligners their teeth are moved gradually into the desired position. The aligners are worn at all times except when eating, drinking, flossing and brushing. Aligners allows patients to eat and drink as normal as it does not have the wires and brackets associated with braces.
Invisalign is a CAD CAM based aligner system, which allows patients to see their step by step progress. Patients can see their virtual 3D treatment plan, seeing what their teeth will look like at different times during treatment.

• Aligners are virtually invisible
