Invisalign is the Invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of
custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven effective
in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth
are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll
have a new reason to smile.
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully
translates your doctor's instructions into a series of precisely customized
aligners. You can wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your
teeth gradually, week by week, millimeter by millimeter, until you've
achieved the intended result: straighter teeth. Generally, you visit your
doctor no more often than you would with braces and the length of treatment
and cost are about the same.
Advantages of Invisalign include healthier gums as you can brush and floss
normally, easier cleaning as there are no metal bands or wires to trap food
and plaque, better chewing and speech as a result of improved tooth
positions and less risk of occlusal wear and trauma due to properly
aligned teeth. Aligners can be removed while you eat and you brush your
teeth as usual. They are clear and comfortable and practically invisible
and will give you that gorgeous smile without the hassle of braces.
Invisalign treatment is suitable in non-growing adolescents and
adults and a trained certified specialist in Invisalign will
determine if Invisalign is right for you.
