No doubt you’ve heard all about the revolutionary Invisalign® system for teeth straightening. Chances are, though, that while you’re familiar with the brand name of this amazing new product, you might not be familiar with exactly how the system works. In this section I’ll answer the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign.
For starters, the Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
After that, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. When will that be, exactly? The amount and duration of each aligner series differs for every mouth. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor, based on your specific needs.
