Invisalign® is a comfortable, removable retainer based alternative to traditional braces. One of the most popular features of Invisalign® is their subtlety. Because they’re clear, it is incredibly hard to tell if a person is wearing them or not.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses clear retainers to straighten your teeth without the need for metal braces. Through a sequence of clear, removable retainer aligners, you slowly shift your smile. Invisalign® is generally less painful than regular braces, and make things like brushing your teeth and eating way easier.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
When using Invisalign®, you wear your aligner for about two weeks at a time for 21-22 hours a day. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove Invisalign® for meals and brush/floss your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly until you achieve your perfect smile. The timeline of Invisalign® is different for every patient but generally averages about 9-15 months. Invisalign® is safe for both adults and teenagers.

Invisalign® is a great option for many people, regardless of age. Invisalign® is a safe, fast, and convenient alternative for traditional braces but may not work for all dental circumstances.
