You may have heard about Invisalign from your family and friends. Maybe you’ve seen it on social media or read about it online. But you may still be wondering – what exactly is Invisalign, and how does it work?
Invisalign is an orthodontic & cosmetic treatment that’s made up of a series of removable aligners or thin plastic trays. The idea is to wear your Invisalign trays every day and night to apply constant pressure to your teeth, only taking them off to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Even once we’re fully grown, our teeth continue to shift ever so slightly over time. Invisalign is designed to guide this movement and bring your teeth into alignment. Over the course of your treatment, your aligners will be swapped out and replaced with new ones to gradually straighten your teeth.
