Invisalign® braces are invisible aligners that take a modern approach to straightening teeth. Invisalign® aligners are made of a thermoplastic material distinctively developed for use in treating certain dental issues.
The orthodontist will utilize a technique of implementing a succession of clear plastic arch aligners, which are comparably similar to teeth whitening or bleaching trays. The arches will fit over all the surfaces of the teeth and are designed to move the teeth in a controlled and predetermined direction.
These Invisalign® aligner trays are made up of smooth, comfortable, and invisible plastic that can be worn over the teeth. As you wear these aligners, they will gradually shift your teeth into place. Each aligner is constructed to shift the teeth from 0.25 to 0.3mm. The dentist can make adjustments, as needed, on a biweekly basis.
There are no metal brackets needed, and there are no wires to tighten. The advantages of Invisalign® aligners are aesthetic in nature, but they can help improve oral hygiene and are easy and comfortable for patients to wear.
The best thing about Invisalign® is the minimum impact it has on everyday life. Since the aligners are comfortable, they’re able to be worn between 20 to 22 hours a day. With help from Invisalign®, you’ll be able to achieve a great smile. The best part is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
