Clear Aligner Therapy
The clear alternative to braces
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is a custom-made aligner that is replaced either every week or every tow weeks for as long as eighteen months, or longer depending on the patient and crowding of teeth , it is Similar to a mouth or retainer (which is designed to keep teeth from moving out of place), clear aligner therapy is used for orthodontic treatment as a technique to move and properly align teeth for a beautiful smile. This clear aligner is usually computer generated from a mold (or impression) of the patient’s teeth—taken by the dentist this clears aligners are fabricated for custom for every patient .
Invisalign vs Traditional Braces
Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign® is one of the most convenient methods to straighten teeth, requiring patients to make minor life changes to accommodate the orthodontic treatment. For instance, patients can take out the aligners when brushing, flossing, eating, or drinking—a significant advantage over traditional braces that make oral care, more difficult and time consumin but also are especially prone to damage when eating hard or chewy foods (i.e. corn on the cob, crunchy taco shells, beef jerky, etc.). Because the mouth trays are transparent (nearly invisible), patients using Invisalign® aligners can straighten their teeth without having to wear mbarrassing metal brackets and wires taking away from the natural look of their smile. The plastic aligners are also esy on cheeks and gums.
