February 10, 2020Many people want to get straighter teeth, but the inconvenience and embarrassment over wearing metal brackets and the discomfort from traditional orthodontic work cause many to put off or rethink that decision. Invisalign presents a great alternative. Invisalign uses nearly invisible aligners to gently move your teeth into position. No metal is used and each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth. They work with a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each tray is manufactured to be incrementally straighter than the previous one, generally by only 0.25mm each. Every two weeks, you get a new set of aligners. This slowly moves your teeth into their ideal place. All you have to do is insert the tray! You can forget the old days of uncomfortable and ugly brackets. Invisalign aligners are clear and hardly noticeable which means that they are a perfect option for adults and teens who want to straighten their smile without drawing attention to it.
