Invisalign™ is a clear removable series of aligners that are designed to gradually straighten the teeth with minimal treatment time. It does not require the use of braces, which is a big advantage for people who have problems with their bite.
Invisalign™ has been shown to provide effective and fast results in the movement of the teeth within just weeks of treatment. It also provides significant improvements for patients that suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders like headaches and improves your smile.
Guide to Understanding Invisalign™
Invisalign™ is a way of straightening teeth using clear aligners, a series of thin, custom-made plastic trays. The lower aligners and the upper aligners are used for an Invisalign™ treatment.
Each set comes with a series of shorter spaces between the teeth to allow for gradual movement to straighten your teeth over time. The initial application usually takes about two hours, and each subsequent set takes just under an hour, for most people. It takes six months to two years for your full treatment to be completed. This will depend on the severity of your case.
Crowded teeth or narrow jaws are other situations that Invisalign™ is perfect for.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign ™ of Teeth Alignment versus Braces?
Aligners focus on the teeth and jawbones, whereas braces are a little more invasive.
If you have a special occasion, you can remove the Invisalign™ for a few hours. You can also remove it for pictures so that you don’t have pictures of you with it in your mouth. This is quite different from traditional braces.
Invisalign™ cannot fix all teeth alignment problems. You need to discuss this with your dentist. Invisalign™ are less noticeable than traditional braces. Because of this, people that are more embarrassed about getting braces should look into Invisalign™ as an option.

Invisalign™ is an alternative to braces with no metal, no bands, and no hooks. A series of custom-made trays are applied over each tooth for treatment. This method eliminates the need for metal and plastic brackets, which can cause discomfort and irritation. The cost is slightly less for Invisalign™ than traditional braces.
