The news about Invisalign is all good. It is an alternative method for straightening teeth that differs greatly from traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are made of a clear material. They are custom made to fit comfortably and are able to be removed by the wearer. Invisalign is covered by most insurance programs.
If your teeth are crowded in your mouth or if there are spaces between your teeth, you may want to talk to your dentist about Invisalign. If you wore braces before, Invisalign works well as a reinforcement.
Dentists who are certified and trained in the elements of Invisalign can tell you if you are a good candidate.
Your dentist will make a mold of your mouth and compose a treatment plan which will both be sent to Invisalign. They will use 3D imagery to custom make aligners for you.
When you get your aligners you will wear them all the time except when you eat or brush and floss. When one aligner has done its part you will move on to the next, and so on. You will wear each aligner for two weeks.
