Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, which are custom-fit for each patient. These fit over the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth, gently pushing them into the proper straightness and alignment. Invisalign works gradually, with a new aligner being created every two weeks to continually shift the teeth a little more with each new appliance.
This gives Invisalign many benefits over traditional braces for most users:
- Nearly invisible: Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and virtually undetectable in day-to-day life.
- Easy application: Each aligner simply slides on and off. There’s no need for glues or an extensive uncomfortable application process.
- No eating restrictions: Unlike braces, Invisalign does nothing to change your eating habits. You just slip off the appliance while eating, and put it back in place when you’re done. Likewise, tooth brushing and flossing is also unaffected.
- Easy cleaning: Invisalign pieces do need to be cleaned nightly, but there is no difficulty to it. They can be cleaned through soaking, like dentures, or merely rubbed with soap and water.
Every mouth is different, and there are still some severe situations, which may call for traditional orthodontic appliances. However, Invisalign can still correct for a wide variety of issues including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign can be fitted to both teenagers and adults. They are a particularly good option for working professionals whose effectiveness may be harmed by visible braces.
