What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a treatment that uses clear aligner trays to gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces, and does not have any brackets or wires. The Invisalign trays are discrete and are comfortable when worn, and do not cause gum or mouth irritation.

The Invisalign aligner trays are worn at minimum 22 hours a day. The time worn each day depends on the patient’s treatment plan and the level of correction needed. Invisalign trays are easily removable for drinking and eating, and have a blue indicator to let patients know when they have worn the trays for the required amount of time each day. The blue indicator is great for teens using Invisalign, and helps parents know if their child has worn their trays for the correct amount of time.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Invisalign?

An excellent candidate for Invisalign is someone who wants to get a gorgeous smile yet wants a discrete and relaxing orthodontic procedure. Without the use of brackets or wires, Invisalign gently moves teeth into their ideal locations using clear aligner trays. The trays are simply detachable, making eating and drinking hassle-free, and they are simple to rinse or clean.

For people who are dedicated to wearing the aligner trays for the recommended number of hours each day, usually between 20 and 22 hours, Invisalign is a good option. Depending on the patient’s particular requirements and the degree of correction needed, this treatment can be altered. Teenagers benefit most from the blue indicator on the trays because it makes sure they wear them for the required amount of time.

The freedom that Invisalign provides is one of its main benefits. When playing an instrument or performing in sports, the aligners can be taken out. Invisalign also fosters confidence and self-esteem because it is a covert orthodontic procedure with no obvious brackets or wires.
