Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Instead of metal bands, brackets, rubber bands, and wires that are connected to your teeth, it uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently move your teeth. These aligners are designed by a computer to move your teeth in a precise sequence that takes your teeth from their current position to a straighter arrangement.
Each aligner will be worn for two weeks, and then you switch to the next one. Once you have gone through the full sequence, your teeth will be straight.
Advantages of Invisalign
