Invisalign* is a form of orthodontic treatment that can correct many different types of orthodontic problems through the use of a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. In many cases it provides an excellent treatment alternative to traditional orthodontic braces. Utilizing 3-D imaging technology one's teeth are virtually set to a final desired position, and a series of custom-made clear aligners are fabricated. Each aligner in this series is worn for one to two weeks, incrementally moving the teeth until the final desired corrections are reached.
Invisalign offers patients a more cosmetic, comfortable and convenient alternative to other types of orthodontic appliances. Invisalign is virtually invisible, transforming smiles with minimal interference to daily activities. Being removable, it allows teens and adults to enjoy eating all of their favorite foods and engage in sports without the fear of breaking their orthodontic appliances. Moreover toothbrushing and flossing is much easier than with braces. The most discreet option in orthodontic care, Invisalign for teens also features a special blue dot indicator to monitor treatment compliance.
