How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a series or system of clear aligners that are custom-designed based on moulds of your teeth. Prior imaging plays a crucial part in ensuring that the treatment regime is appropriate to address your bite issues.
Invisalign is typically constructed from comfortable BPA-free plastics. These clear Invisalign aligners gradually move your teeth into position by exerting gentle pressure. Patients are given new aligners every few weeks throughout their treatment as the their teeth slowly begins to move into position. Treatment time varies based on your specific bite issues and cosmetic goals. The major benefit of Invisalign is that since it’s nearly invisible, you do not have to feel self-conscious about their use throughout the day.
