What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth discreetly. It offers an alternative to traditional braces, utilizing advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create custom aligners. Patients wear a series of these nearly invisible aligners over several weeks, each set gently shifting the teeth into their desired position. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, convenient, and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This treatment is popular for its aesthetic appeal and effectiveness in correcting a wide range of dental misalignments, providing patients with a more confident smile throughout their orthodontic journey

invisalign® vs. traditional braces

Invisalign® uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth discreetly, while traditional braces use metal brackets and wires. Invisalign offers a more aesthetically pleasing option as the aligners are nearly invisible, and they can be removed for eating and cleaning. Traditional braces are fixed to the teeth throughout treatment. Invisalign® may be preferred by those seeking a more convenient and less noticeable orthodontic solution, but the suitability depends on individual dental needs and preferences.
