What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is custom made for your teeth. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental provider.
A virtual treatment plan is generated by Align Technology’s unique ClinCheck® software that allows you to see the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of treatment. This will give you and your dentist an opportunity to see from the beginning of treatment all the way through to the end result.
If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign.
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life. Check out the benefits below:
Your dental practitioner will take impressions of your teeth from which Align Technology produces your personal custom-made aligners.
Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss or for special occasions.
Even before your Invisalign treatment is finished, you’ll begin enjoying the benefits of a better smile. Teeth alignment will start right from the beginning.
Invisalign is comfortable as there are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your gums or the inside of the mouth
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible so hardly anyone will notice you’re straightening your teeth.
