Invisalign is a virtually invisible method to straighten misaligned teeth. Transparent aligners (splints) will be customized especially for your teeth. Tooth movement will then gradually be initiated. Biweekly you will move on to the next pair of aligners so that your teeth may shift to their final position a bit at a time. Invisalign-aligners can be removed. In contrast to fixed metal orthodontic appliances you can eat and drink whenever and whatever you like during the whole treatment period. For this and for dental hygiene as well you briefly remove the aligners. Your dental care will thus not come off badly and you always maintain a fresh breath.
Unlike conventional, fixed braces Invisalign has got no metal brackets or wires. Teeth will be moved using minimal forces only in order to avoid long-term health impairments. In a virtual model and treatment plan you will be able to see the final result before your therapy has even started. So you will know the probable look of your teeth right from the beginning. Even slight malpositions should be treated with Invisalign for 14 weeks before veneers are placed for that the teeth do not have to be cut beforehand.
