What You Need to Know About the Invisalign System

The Invisalign orthodontic system consists of a series of clear plastic aligners. Their shape is slowly modified in order to straighten your teeth over time. A dentist may recommend this treatment over traditional braces for a number of reasons. Not only are these aligners nearly invisible, but straighter teeth may be provided within a shorter period of time. 

Here are three additional benefits: 

  • The aligners can be removed when cleaning your teeth, sleeping or attending social events.
  • Many dental issues can be treated, including over-bite and under-bite.
  • Adjustments will occur on a regular basis.

“Because they aren’t nearly as noticeable as metal braces, Invisalign can boost your confidence.”
