Invisalign® is a type of clear aligner that typically is faster than traditional braces. These clear aligners can rotate teeth, close spaces, and fix crowding. It is common to need small composite (tooth colored filling material) buttons on one or more teeth to help the tray facilitate movements. The buttons will match your tooth color and is removed at the end of treatment. Invisalign® works best when worn 22 hours a day, and is taken out when eating and drinking. A success of trays will be given to you and you will switch them out every 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the amount of movement needed.
Not only can this align your teeth for getting that perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of, but it also helps reduce your risk of periodontal and occlusal disease. You are able to floss and brush your teeth much easier in proper alignment and with a perfect bite, you are at much lower risk for grinding and chipping teeth.
