Invisalign is a great alternative for people who do like the appearance of braces. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible and this makes it a very popular option for teens and especially adults.
Invisalign involves wearing a series of aligners which are changed every two weeks. As patients replace their aligners their teeth are moved gradually into the desired position. The aligners are worn at all times except when eating, drinking, flossing and brushing. Invisalign allows patients to eat and drink as normal as it does not have the wires and brackets associated with braces.
Invisalign is a computer generated aligner system, which allows patients to see their step by step progress. Patients can see their virtual 3D treatment plan, seeing what their teeth will look like at different times during treatment.
Invisalign treatment time can be reduced with the use of AcceleDent. AcceleDent consists of a vibrating mouthpiece that is worn daily for 20 minutes. It uses patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and the surrounding bone causing no discomfort. This is proven to accelerate tooth movement and typically reduce orthodontic treatment time by 30%. When using AcceleDent with Invisalign, aligners can be generally changed every week rather than every fortnight.
