It works through a series of invisible, clear, removable and comfortable aligners that are worn over the teeth. You wear a set for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
Invisalign ® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final. Invisalign ® can treat anything from space closure, overly crowded teeth, overbites, under-bites, and cross-bites. It does so as the aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. Not only does it control force but also the tuning in each stage. Only certain teeth are allowed to move as prescribed by your dentist's treatment plan.
As you replace each set of aligners with the next in series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position prescribed by your dentist.
Invisalign ® is the invisible clear braces which straighten your teeth without metal braces.
