Invisalign treatment is a type of orthodontic treatment that relies on custom-made, clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and smile. These aligners can treat all the same issues as traditional braces, but unlike braces, they allow you to maintain the natural appearance of your teeth throughout your treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are especially popular among teenagers and young adults.
Invisalign clear aligners use a digital treatment plan to map out the tooth movements needed to properly align your teeth. A series of aligners are then designed, each of which makes small adjustments to the positions of your teeth. As you switch to new sets of aligners, your teeth will gradually move into the correct positions.
Invisalign clear aligners are minimally invasive. In fact, they are designed to be both comfortable and effective and have as little impact on your lifestyle as possible. The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush and floss normally. You can also receive Invisalign treatment if you have received treatment such as dental veneers or crowns in the past. We do recommend that you wear your aligners as often as possible, as recommended by our orthodontist, to ensure that your treatment stays on track, and that you clean your aligners regularly to prevent your teeth from appearing discolored, stained or dirty.
