What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that is ideal for patients not wanting bulky metal wiring and brackets. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear trays known as aligners. These aligners help to apply gentle pressure to the teeth, correcting issues with crowding and crookedness. The treatment is ideal for older children, teens, and adult patients alike.
Why Is Invisalign Needed?
You may need or want Invisalign treatment if you have severely overcrowded or crooked teeth. Additionally, patients with an overbite or underbite will benefit from this treatment as well. Invisalign is ideal for patients who don’t want to wear traditional metal braces. The aligners need to be worn for the majority of the day and night in order for treatment to be effective.
