Invisalign® is a form of orthodontic treatment that works to correct many different types of malocclusions by using a series of clear plastic trays called aligners.
In many cases, it provides an excellent treatment alternative to having traditional orthodontic braces and metal wires. Invisalign utilizes 3-D computer imaging technology to correct problematic bites or malocclusions by planning a complete sequence of custom-made, clear aligners.
This series of clear aligners, each worn for a couple of weeks, incrementally moves the teeth into place until the final desired corrections are reached. The advantage and appeal of Invisalign appliances are that they are more cosmetic and more comfortable than most other orthodontic appliances. With Invisalign appliances, orthodontic treatment is practically “invisible.”
