What are Invisalign clear aligners?
Clear aligners are transparent, removable, custom-made orthodontic devices designed to adjust or straighten teeth. An alternative to traditional braces, they can be used to correct a number of mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as an overbite, misalignment, crowded teeth and gaps in teeth.
While like braces they work to align teeth, the difference is that clear aligners do not use metal wires or brackets, and may be removed by the patient to brush, floss, eat, and drink.
Typically, the duration of orthodontic treatment is shorter with clear aligners than with traditional braces.
To get the expected results, patients must follow their custom treatment plan and wear the aligners at all times to avoid compromising the outcome or needing more treatment time.
The orthodontists at SmileTown Orthodontics Braces & Invisalign can help you and your teen decide if clear aligners are right for them.
