Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible aligners that are custom-made to your teeth for comfort. As you replace each aligner, every two weeks, your teeth will move gradually towards the final position as previously designed. With Invisalign aligners you can eat whatever you want, maintain good oral hygiene, and if you wish remove them briefly for special occasions. Your lifestyle remains intact.
What is the difference between Invisalign and braces? Invisalign consists of a series of trays that you can take on and off as they are removable , where as braces consist of brackets and wires attached to the teeth, which are fixed to the teeth. Invisalign is not as painful as fixed braces as there is no rubbing of wires and brackets against the gums. Initially, you will feel pressure which can cause discomfort and ulceration. This eases as the treatment progresses.
