What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Invisalign uses cutting-edge software and technology to shift misaligned teeth with a series of customized clear aligner trays. Invisalign Clear Aligners are made of a thermoplastic material and custom-designed to fit over your teeth. Although they look very different from braces, Invisalign Aligners use the same gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth into the perfect position.
Unlike traditional braces, no part of the clear aligner tray is attached to the actual surface of your tooth. Because the aligners can be removed, they make it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean throughout the treatment process. The Invisalign clear aligner trays are taken out before you begin your normal dental hygiene routine, allowing you to brush and floss the same way you always have.
How Long does Invisalign Clear Aligner Treatment Take?
Each patient’s orthodontic problem is unique, and each patient responds to treatment differently, so there is no universal answer for how long your Invisalign treatment will take. In general, the total treatment time for Invisalign Clear Aligners can be anywhere from 9-15 months.
Are Invisalign Clear Aligners Expensive?
As clear aligners have become more popular over the years, they have also become more affordable. Invisalign aligners tend to cost about as much as traditional braces; however, the cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan.
