What is Invisalign?

If you struggle with crooked or misaligned teeth, but dread the idea of traditional metal braces, Invisalign is an appealing solution. Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear plastic trays that move your teeth into proper alignment.
    MESA, AZ, August 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Advantages Over Traditional Braces

The choice between Invisalign and traditional braces may seem like an obvious one, but Invisalign is not ideal for all patients. Traditional braces may be needed if you have extreme malocclusions, but Invisalign works well for most patients with misaligned teeth. Invisalign may be a particularly good choice for adults who want to avoid attention-drawing braces, individuals who have major life events planned for the near future such as weddings or graduations, and for those who do not have complex alignment problems.

Invisalign is much more practical and convenient than traditional braces. The clear plastic aligners used in virtually invisible when worn, so they don't carry the stigma associated with metal braces. The transparent trays can be easily removed when patients need to eat or brush and floss, so you can continue to keep excellent care of your teeth. Since the aligners don't require metal brackets, Invisalign causes far less soft tissue irritation and discomfort.

How Invisalign Works

The process of Invisalign uses computer technology to develop a series of teeth aligners that are custom-made for your treatment plan. First, your dentist will use a combination of x-rays, digital pictures, and special impressions of your teeth in order to create a computerized model of both your upper and lower teeth. The Invisalign software will use this model to calculate a treatment sequence and the aligners will be made for your specific bite pattern. Each individual aligner is designed to put just the right amount of pressure on each tooth, so each they all gradually move into the correct position. About every two weeks, you will move to the next set of aligners, and the process will continue until your teeth have moved to their final correct position.
