Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that offers the same benefits as traditional metal braces without metal brackets or wires. The treatment consists of wearing a series of clear aligners over the teeth for about 22 hours per day. Each aligner will slightly adjust the positioning of the teeth until the intended results are achieved.
The aligners that are used with Invisalign treatment are custom-made based on impressions of the patient’s teeth. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable meaning that the user will not need to make any changes to their regular oral care practices, and they will be able to maintain their usual diet.
Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before it is replaced with the next one in the series. When a new aligner is applied, it will be very tight at first. But it should gradually become looser and more comfortable in the coming days. The process of replacing aligners will continue until the teeth reach their desired positioning.
Besides being able to eat and drink whatever they would like during treatment, there are a few other reasons why most patients prefer Invisalign treatment over metal braces. For one, the aligners are clear and virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also great for athletes, as they do not present the same injury risks as metal braces.
