Invisalign® is a special orthodontic teeth straightening system that uses removable trays called “aligners” instead of wires and brackets to move teeth into proper alignment. Because the aligners are removable, it's much easier to care for teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits, and the aligners can also be removed for special social events. Plus, they can be removed for eating, which means they don't have the same dietary restrictions as metal braces. Even while in place, the clear plastic material makes the aligners nearly invisible, and there are no sharp wires or metal edges to irritate gums and lips.
Invisalign® uses an impression, or mold, of your teeth to create a series of aligners that are created specifically for your teeth and your alignment needs. The impression is sent to a special lab where computers scan the molds and create a series of virtual 3-D models that show the movements your teeth need to make to become straight and aligned. The plastic aligners are created by the computer system based on those 3-D models for a truly custom fit. About every two weeks, the aligner will be replaced with a new one to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.
No, just a gentle brushing and rinsing is all that's needed. Invisalign® also sells a care kit if you prefer.
Yes, Invisalign® makes a special product just for young patients whose adult teeth haven't fully emerged. Invisalign® Teen has spaces to enable molars to emerge without interfering with treatment, and the teen system also provides extra aligners in case of loss or damage.
