Invisalign is a treatment that gradually straightens teeth with clear, removable aligners. There are no wires, brackets, or restrictions that come along with traditional metal braces.
The clear aligners are made of plastic designed exclusively for Invisalign that is FDA approved, BPA free, BPS free, latex free and gluten free. The aligners can be removed to eat or drink.
This also make it simple to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy during the treatment period. Moreover, the aligners are virtually invisible, making them very aesthetically pleasing.

Invisalign technology can be used to treat a wide variety of teeth-straightening and bite issues. It is a great treatment option for teens and adults. It has very little impact on your daily life.
During your consultation, an Invisalign trained doctor will exam your mouth and create a unique, customized digital treatment plan for you to preview. Once you approve the plan, your aligners will be created.
While it does use a gentle, constant force to shift your teeth, some patients do experience a mild discomfort. This is usually described as a feeling of pressure.

To prevent your teeth from shifting again, you will need to wear a retainer after your treatment is over. There are many types of retainers and your orthodontist can recommend one for you.
