Invisalign®* is a form of orthodontic treatment that works to correct many different types of malocclusions through the use of a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. A totally discrete, comfortable and completely removable method of care, Invisalign offers an excellent treatment alternative to having traditional orthodontic braces and metal wires.
Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to correct malocclusions through a prescribed sequence of custom-made clear aligners. The aligners, each of which is worn for a couple of weeks, incrementally move the teeth into place until the final desired corrections are reached.
The advantage and appeal of the Invisalign method is that the clear aligners are more cosmetic and comfortable than other orthodontic appliances. With Invisalign appliances orthodontic treatment is practically “invisible.”
