The primary appeal of Invisalign is the discreet appearance of clear plastic aligners. As teeth are gradually straightened with consistent, gentle pressure, there is no bulk or inconvenience experienced. Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can eat your favorite foods and also brush and floss your teeth without brackets and wires getting in the way.
Each set of trays in the entire series is crafted to progress the movement of teeth as planned. Aligners are worn for two weeks at a time and then simply switched for the next set. An important note about treatment: proper wear of aligners is vital to the achievement of the desired result. Aligners must be worn for about 22 hours each day. They are designed to be removed only for eating and oral hygiene. While you may remove trays for the occasional special event or important meeting, leaving them out for too long will impede the final result.
