Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth without the use of the typical metal braces, and has quickly revolutionised the orthodontics world. Now patients have a different option besides ugly metal brackets. Invisalign involves wearing a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that help shift your teeth into the proper position, so patients who would have never considered braces before are now giving Invisalign a shot.

There are many advantages to using Invisalign, including the fact that you can keep eating all your favourite foods, and you can stay active in all the sports and activities you love. You'll experience fewer emergency visits, without the hassle of brackets and wires breaking, and your Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, so people may not even notice you’re wearing them.

You'll wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, as prescribed by your doctor, and you’ll probably schedule check-ups every six to eight weeks to check your progress. Fewer doctor visits mean more time to enjoy life. When wearing each new set of aligners, you may feel a little extra pressure or discomfort for the first few days, which is totally normal. Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for best results, and parents, your teen's aligners will have blue compliance indicators to assure you they’re wearing them enough.

Rinse your aligners every night and brush them gently with your toothbrush to keep them fresh and clean, and use the Invisalign cleaning system to keep your aligners clear. Chosing Invisalign means you can maintain your teeth easily in comparison to traditional braces.
