How Does Invisalign Work?

A straighter smile can be more attractive and may even be healthier because straighter teeth are easier to clean and to keep free from disease and infection. The traditional idea of orthodontics conjures up images of unsightly metal brackets and heavy wires, or even external headgear, all of which is highly visible although extremely effective. Nowadays, the reality of modern orthodontic treatment is far more discreet, especially for adults. Although fixed braces are still widely used, there are other and more modern options, including removable braces, which can be a far more desirable treatment choice for older teens or adults who would feel too self-conscious to wear fixed braces. One popular orthodontic system is Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that have been precision designed using advanced 3-D imaging. The aligners are nearly invisible and fit tightly over the teeth, gradually moving them into predetermined positions until your teeth are beautifully straight. Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign aligners are easy to care for and are removed whenever you want to eat or brush or floss. Invisalign is minimally disruptive to everyday life and is extremely discreet, providing high-quality, predictable treatment outcomes.
