Clear aligners like Invisalign are an effective way to straighten teeth. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign braces aren’t very noticeable. They can be worn by people of all ages, but are especially popular with adults. This video from Top Doctors UK provides an in-depth explanation of how Invisalign works.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit over teeth. X-rays and 3D models are used to construct clear braces with the right fit. After the aligners are completed, they can be adjusted for an even better fit.
Patients typically wear their aligners throughout the day, removing them before meals. Over time, the aligners will straighten teeth and move them into the proper position. It’s common for patients to switch to a new set of aligners as their teeth start to change.
Clear braces like Invisalign can correct many dental issues, including overcrowded teeth, overbites, and underbites. Aligners can also correct other issues, like gaps in teeth. While the length of treatment varies, treatment plans can be customized to fit the needs of patients.
Invisalign braces offer many advantages over standard braces. If you’re interested in Invisalign and want to learn more, don’t hesitate to ask your dentist. They can tell you if this treatment is right for your teeth.
