Not long ago bulky metal braces where the only option for straightening and aligning teeth. Metal braces were so conspicuous some people felt smiling with crooked teeth was better than smiling with a mouth full of painful metal.
While metal braces do yield results, how do we achieve the same results with a technique that is less painful and less visible? The answer to that question became what we now know as Invisalign.
Invisalign, or the “invisible braces”, works kind of like a retainer does. It’s clear and custom designed to fit your teeth so that it makes adjustments little by little as you work your way through 18 to 30 aligners until your teeth reach their ideal destination. It is worn at all times except when eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. Invisalign has been incredibly successful in achieving results for many people of all ages.
