So, what exactly is Invisalign and what makes it so unique?
Invisalign was first developed by Align Technology who teamed up with a leading orthodontist in 1997. The result was a collection of custom-made clear aligners that can be removed, rather than fixed metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable and one of the incredible benefits of wearing these clear aligners is that they can be worn with minimal disruption to your daily life.
Their originality lies in their ability to move your teeth gradually over time, day by day, due to their unique construction within the plastic. Each set of aligners are only worn for two weeks and then a new set is fitted, and the cycle continues.
One of the advantages that has proven exceptionally popular for Invisalign-wearing patients is the ability to be able to remove them. During this time, you have the freedom to brush your teeth and clean your set of aligners. You are also able to eat and drink without having to worry about removing certain food and drink items from your menu.
What kind of dental issues can Invisalign help to correct?
Invisalign can treat a wide range of dental and orthodontic issues that are commonly experienced by many patients today. In some cases, Invisalign may be a solution in place of traditional metal braces, as they can correct many minor to moderate misalignments.
Some of these dental and orthodontic issues that Invisalign can correct include overly crowded teeth in patients, as well as widely spaced teeth. Clear aligners are also effective in rectifying a crossbite, a deep bite or an underbite.
To date there are millions of patients from all around the world who have enjoyed the incredible results that Invisalign has brought to their lives.
