What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign treatment uses clear, removable aligners used to straighten and align teeth by moving them into a better position, just as traditional fixed metal braces do. However, while braces have wires that pull teeth into position, wireless Invisalign aligners push teeth into alignment.
During the Invisalign treatment process, patients receive a series of aligners, each custom-made for their mouths. As each aligner set is slightly different, they make small adjustments to the teeth over time to correct dental alignment problems.
What Problems Can Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign can correct a whole range of cosmetic dental issues. You might benefit from these aligners if you have one of the following conditions:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign is a good choice for minor orthodontic issues while braces remain the gold standard for more complex cases. Your dentist can assess your mouth and dental concerns and advise you whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
