What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners that uses state of the art digital 3D planning and printing and uses a series of custom made removable clear medical grade almost invisible aligners (appliances) to move teeth into a more desired position.
Why should you consider Invisalign?
Straight teeth improve your smile, the way you feel and see yourself and they also have a positive impact on your oral health. Rotated and tipped teeth can accumulate more plaque and calculus, are more difficult to clean, are more prone to gum disease, and to developing cavities. However, properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss, thus less likely to suffer from gum disease, cavities, sensitivity!
As of 2021, Invisalign has helped transform 12 million smiles around the world and has transformed the traditional world of orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.
How long should I wear these?
The comfortable aligners are meant to be worn continually, except for when eating, brushing or flossing. Unlike conventional braces, the advantage of these aligners is that they may be removed, facilitating brushing and flossing, do not require any changes in diet and a minimal change in appearance. They also work faster than traditional braces – most cases can be treated in as little as a year!
