The Invisalign treatment is designed to straighten the teeth without the use of traditional braces.
The Invisalign treatment is designed to straighten the teeth without the use of traditional braces. This orthodontic treatment was created by Dr. David M. Ludlow, a dentist in Virginia, and his colleagues in 1997 and was FDA-approved for widespread use in 2000. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for 22 hours each day, except when eating or brushing teeth. These aligners gradually straighten front and back teeth so that they meet properly with no metal brackets or wires, only a small attachment on the side of your mouth to help you remove them at night.”
Invisalign can be used for adults as well as children.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners rather than traditional metal braces. The aligners are designed to gradually move the teeth into place without the use of any wires, brackets, or other unsightly hardware.
The treatment is an alternative for people who may not be able to tolerate the discomfort and inconvenience of metal braces. It’s also for people who want more control over their orthodontic care by being able to take off their aligners as needed and resume treatment at a later time.
