Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that can straighten crooked teeth without discernible brackets, wires and elastics. A series of transparent, custom-designed trays fit tightly over the patient’s teeth in order to gradually align them into an optimal position. Each set of trays is generally worn for two weeks and the number of trays and the duration of the treatment vary according to each patient’s specific needs and objectives. After assessing the patient and determining whether Invisalign can achieve the desired results, the dentist will take photos, x-rays and dental impressions, all of which are sent to the Invisalign lab where each set of trays is fabricated with cutting-edge precision. In addition to being practically invisible, the trays are removable, allowing the patient to eat and drink favorite foods and beverages while ensuring an excellent dental hygiene at all times. Speak with your dentist to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
