Braces are – or at least used to be – an extremely popular method of straightening crooked or damaged teeth to give you a perfect smile. While they work, traditional braces are extremely obvious, they require countless trips to the dentist or orthodontist, and they are generally pretty expensive.
Invisalign technology is a new, more modern form of braces. Invisalign is also designed to help straighten crooked teeth, but they are much more inconspicuous and more convenient. They can be fitted and maintained by a standard dentist, and anyone can use them!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is basically a more modern, more convenient alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are designed to straighten your teeth without a lot of pain or discomfort. They are basically small, virtually invisible plastic mouthpieces which are fitted to straighten your teeth. Each aligner is used for a couple of weeks, and then you move onto the next one. Each aligner is slightly straighter than the last, which means that your teeth will gradually be pulled into place.
