What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets and wires to align teeth, Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic material.
The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, gradually shifting them into their proper positions. Every two weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners, each one bringing you closer to your desired smile.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
- Discreet Appearance: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that won’t irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional braces can.
- Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This makes it easy to maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
- Effective Treatment: Invisalign is a highly effective orthodontic treatment that can correct a wide range of dental issues, including crowding, gaps, and bite problems.
