What Invisalign Can Do for You

Nov 08, 2016
A popular trend that is taking storm in teeth correction treatment is Invisalign. Now a more desirable alternative to braces, Invisalign has become an effective way of achieving a perfect smile, without the pain and maintenance that is expected from traditional metal braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is essentially a set of “invisible braces,” clear aligners that are customized to fit you.These aligners are worn similarly to retainers or mouth guards and go over your teeth. They can be worn all-day, and are made to be removable so you can take them out for eating or drinking. You receive a new set of aligners every two weeks; the goal for each custom-made aligner is to slowly shift your teeth into place.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Over time, the aligners shift your teeth into place. Every two weeks, your dentist will provide you with a new set of aligners that will continue to shift your teeth until your treatment is fully complete.
