Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that uses clear, plastic aligners to move your teeth one at a time into their correct positions. The aligners are custom-made to your teeth's shape and size and are inserted into your gum tissue over a period of two to four weeks.
The aligners hold your teeth in place while you eat and drink, so they can gradually disappear as your teeth move into their new positions. Over time, the alignments remove harmful tartar and the forces that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
The Orthodontic treatment is relatively short-term (two to four months), but the results can be long-lasting. Many patients see significant improvement in their smile within the first few months of treatment, with even more dramatic results after six months or more of consistent use.
Why is Invisalign the best-kept secret for straightening teeth?
There are several reasons why Invisalign is such a popular choice for people who want to straighten their teeth without braces.
First of all, Invisalign is a removable treatment option – so you can continue to live your life as usual while your teeth are being corrected.
Secondly, Invisalign is very affordable – typically costing less than half the price of traditional braces.
And finally, many people report that Invisalign is actually more comfortable than traditional braces. If you’re concerned about how your appearance will look after straightening your teeth with braces, give Invisalign a try – you may be surprised at how much easier it is to wear and how great your teeth look once they’re finished.
