Invisalign is a relatively new treatment that is reducing the need for dentists to use conventional braces.
Invisalign is a treatment that uses removable plastic aligners to create the tooth movement in a patient's mouth. Computer technology dictates which teeth will be forced to move at a given time and determines how the aligners are formed. Forcing teeth to move with removable aligners is not a new technology, but the computer advancements are making Invisalign a more attractive option.
Invisalign is recommended for patients with orthodontic situations that require mild to moderate correction of spacing or crowding. The aligners are almost undetectable to the eye, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
