What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a brand that makes thin, clear aligners used in orthodontic treatment. They’re made from a flexible material called SmartTrack. This product is made to make orthodontic treatment less noticeable, as the American Association of Orthodontists says. Invisalign aligners aren’t completely invisible, but they’re way less noticeable than traditional braces with brackets and wires.

What Does The Invisalign Process Look Like?

To start your orthodontist will make a 3-D image of your mouth and jaw to create a teeth-straightening plan. After the orthodontist develops the plan, they’ll make personalized plastic aligners for you. These aligners will gently move your teeth into their proper positions over time. As per your orthodontist’s guidance, you’ll change your aligners every week or two. It’s important to wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day.

What Are Clear Aligners?

Years of research and trials led to the design of clear aligners from a multilayer medical-grade plastic. The result is a stunningly transparent and resilient aligner that moves teeth effectively. Most people won’t know you’re wearing our aligners since they’re as clear as they get when it comes to clear aligners.
 
It is essential that orthodontic devices stay on, and Clear aligners are the best at doing just that. In other aligners, they relax and lose their grip over time. It is for this reason that they often add “engagers” (small tooth-colored bumps) to your teeth so that the aligner holds on. Engagers are sometimes needed to move teeth, while others are merely used to keep the aligner in place.
 
Clear aligners are specifically designed to move teeth effectively, by using fewer engagers. Clear aligners have been shown to be 2.5x more retentive than aligners with scalloped trim lines because of their smooth flat trimline that extends past your teeth. By eliminating the need for additional engagers, you get a treatment that is effective yet attractive.
