Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to replicate the effects of traditional metal braces. Using computerized dental mapping technology and clear plastic aligners, the Invisalign system can help you achieve a straighter smile without any metal.
Your provider designs your aligner tray to fit snugly over your teeth and exert a small but constant pressure that gradually pushes them towards a straighter position in your mouth. Over time, this continuous pressure causes your teeth to shift into their desired arrangement.
If this method sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same basic principles on which traditional metal braces operate. The difference is that your clear aligners accomplish this task with an added degree of comfort, convenience, and cosmetic appeal.
The smooth plastic of your aligners won’t irritate the insides of your cheeks like the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces.
Unlike metal braces, clear aligners are removable, so you won’t have to change your diet or learn special techniques for cleaning your teeth. All you have to do is remove your aligners whenever you want to eat, brush, or floss, and put them back in afterward.
Your aligners are virtually invisible when they’re on your teeth, so you won’t have to endure the mouthful-of-metal look that’s unavoidable with braces.
