What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work To Straighten Teeth?
Invisalign clear aligners are a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign involves a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays that apply gentle pressure to your teeth, creating small corrections to their positions and straightening your smile over time. Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easy to eat your favorite foods and brush your teeth, and they’re nearly invisible to the naked eye. This makes them a great option for patients looking for a discreet treatment option.
Invisalign treatment works for many different common orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, and more. Invisalign treatment typically lasts between 12 and 18 months, with some variation depending on your unique needs. Here at Koen Orthodontics, we create a completely personalized treatment plan for each patient, so how you use Invisalign (and for how long) is unique to you.
