Invisalign is a series of clear and comfortable aligners that snap over your teeth and create light but steady pressure to guide your teeth into position over a period of time. Each aligner works for a two-week period, before you change to the next one. They are to be worn 22 hours out of each 24-hour day, so essentially all hours except for eating, brushing and flossing. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental practitioner.
They are digitally fabricated by a very advanced process that assures excellent fit and made only for YOUR mouth.
Adults who want to improve the health and appearance of their teeth without bringing attention to it. They are thrilled to know they can instead wear clear plastic "aligners", each with a slightly improved shape to get the teeth quickly towards the final goal.
Teenagers who use the Invisalign Teen product can achieve straight teeth without metal braces. Ask your Invisalign dentist about whether your child is a suitable candidate.
