Many people have misaligned or crooked teeth. The causes can range from genetic factors to jaw development as children. Straighter teeth are more attractive, less likely to cause jaw pain, and they are also easier to clean, reducing your risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Invisalign aligners are a virtually invisible alternative to metal braces. The aligners are made of clear plastic, and fit over your teeth, and they can be removed when you're eating, brushing or flossing.
Invisalign treatment times can vary as treatment is completely customized to the patients' needs. It can range from 5 months to 2 years. During treatment you'll wear a new, slightly different set of aligners every 2 weeks. Each new set moves your teeth into their new, straighter positions. Following Invisalign treatment, you'll may require a retainer to hold your teeth in position as they settle. For more information on Invisalign, please click here to visit their site.
