Invisalign is a very effective and aesthetic clear custom-made aligner exchanged roughly every 2 weeks for a period of 6 to 24 months to help straighten and improve misaligned teeth. Invisalign aligners are designed to keep your teeth from shifting out of place and move your teeth back into their proper position, giving you a beautiful smile. The aligners are computer generated from an impression of the patient’s teeth which creates a unique fitting for each patient.
Patients using Invisalign require only minor changes to their life style to accommodate the orthodontic treatment. After an office visit with traditional braces, the patient can experience a lot of pain from the new alignment by the adjustment in the tension of the braces. With Invisalign, the patient can take out the aligner when flossing, eating, drinking or brushing. This is a significant advantage over traditional braces especially when it comes to eating hard or chewy foods like corn on the cob, sticky candy, beef jerky, or other difficult to eat foods.
Because these aligners are transparent, patients are able to have their teeth strength and without the embarrassing metal brackets and wires from traditional braces. They are also gentle on gums and cheeks, unlike braces which contain sharp edges that can cut or scrape the mouth.
