Invisalign® is one of the latest approaches to straighten teeth, using a series of aligners customized to the individual patient. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that fit over a person’s teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift the teeth back in place. There are no metal brackets to attach, and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks or so, until the treatment is complete and you achieve the desired results. And the best part of is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth. Other advantages include the ability to eat whatever you want — and the ease of brushing, flossing and removing the aligners for cleaning.
