A few years ago, the only way to align or straighten crooked teeth was to fit them with dental braces, but fortunately, these metal braces that look very similar to train tracks, have meanwhile lost their popularity and has made way for more innovative ways and orthodontic devices that can be used to straighten teeth.

How do Invisalign clear aligners differ from traditional braces?

Traditional metal braces have wires, brackets, and other restrictions, that often cause discomfort and pain, while Invisalign clear aligners, are orthodontic devices that are a transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust crooked teeth and they are completely removable.

For some reason, people with Invisalign typically wear their aligner trays for a shorter period of time than recommended, which can extend the overall length of the treatment. As a result, traditional braces have proven more effective in cases of severe tooth misalignment, especially where the teeth are overlapping or rotated, as Invisalign is not as effective in this regard.

Invisalign clear aligners are highly recommended for adults, as it allows for teeth to be straightened without the use of screws, brackets or clasps. Wearing a biocompatible resin splint in place of metal will be virtually unnoticeable. At any time, the splint can be easily removed and cleaned.

What if your smile isn’t what you had always wanted it to be?

Designed to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, from minor tooth movements to somewhat more complex cases, Invisalign is the perfect aesthetic solution. Invisalign may be able to improve your smile and boost your confidence.

How does Invisalign treatment work?

When you opt for Invisalign, your teeth will be straightened using a set of removable aligners that are not only nearly invisible, but also custom-made for your teeth. While replacing each aligner every 14 days, your teeth will gradually start to move towards the final position that has been projected, which is also known as alignment.

Multiple times during the course of treatment, the splint will be changed to ensure your teeth are corrected in a smooth and orderly manner. This means that you can align your teeth in an extraordinarily comfortable way, while also achieving optimal aesthetic results.
