Invisalign consists of clear, removable, custom-made, plastic aligners. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of these aligners to help move your teeth. With the aid of a 3D animation, you will be able to see each step of the treatment.

Invisalign aligners should be taken out for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, but should be worn least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. Treatment with Invisalign does not require frequent visits to the dentist. You will only need to visit your dentist every six weeks or so to check that your teeth are getting straightened as planned. Your aligners should be replaced with the next one in the series every two weeks on average. The overall course of treatment rarely exceeds 24 months, though most people have their teeth straightened within a year.

Advantages of Invisalign invisible braces

Invisalign aligners are transparent, therefore, most people won’t even notice them. Perhaps more importantly, they are removable, so you can still enjoy your favourite foods and clean your teeth as you would do normally. Finally, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable since they are made of smooth plastic that doesn’t cause any irritation to your teeth and gums.

Invisalign appeals to many patients since it works very well to treat mild teeth straightening cases. If you are an adult and you have the discipline to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, then you are probably a good candidate for Invisalign.
