If you’ve thought about aligning your teeth, you’ve probably heard about Invisalign. Invisalign is a series of clear plastic trays called aligners which are virtually invisible when worn on the teeth. By regularly wearing these trays, in the prescribed sequence, patients can gradually straighten their teeth without the usual, noticeable “metal-mouth” look of traditional braces. And Invisalign aligners are removable, which not only means they are easy to clean and maintain, but you can also brush and floss normally, and even eat and drink whatever you want while using them! And since Invisalign aligners do not involve traditional orthodontic appliances like archwires and brackets, there is no chance to develop mouth sores.

Invisalign aligners are custom-designed to perfectly match each patient’s unique needs. Each aligner in the set is work for about two weeks, removed only to eat, drink, brush and floss. Occasional check-up appointments will also be necessary when using the Invisalign system. On average, patients can expect to be completely done with their aligners in about 6-15 months, and can immediately start enjoying the benefits of a beautiful, straight smile.
