Invisalign is a brand of braces that uses clear tray aligners made from their own blend of plastic and manufactured in their own facility. Based on molds taken from your mouth, aligners will be made from strong plastic that will put enough pressure on your teeth to slowly shift them into a correct position. We will consult with you first to determine your overall oral health and to take impressions of your teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
When using Invisalign aligners, you will receive replacement trays every two weeks. Each ty will feel slightly different as it is designed to shift and move your teeth accordingly. You will need to wear your aligners for most of the day to see results. This means up to 20-22 hours per day; without consistent wear, results will not be as optimal or fast. Invisalign aligners are easily removeable and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
How is Invisalign Different From Retainers?
What is the difference between Invisalign aligners and retainers? Invisalign aligners are actually braces because they actively move your teeth into place and shape your mouth and jaw. Retainers are used to solely keep your teeth in place.
