Invisalign: Clear, Removable, Comfortable

An old wives’ tale suggests that those who suck their thumbs in childhood grow up to have crooked teeth. While this may or may not be true, crooked teeth affect many people, and a misaligned smile can present problems with biting, as well as being detrimental to a person’s smile appearance.

As a result, many people with crooked teeth seek orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth and improve their smile through the use of dental braces. However, dental braces can themselves look unsightly due to the use of metallic rails and tooth supports used in the treatment. Invisalign clear braces offer all the benefits of conventional dental braces, but without the unsightly appearance, while also being much more comfortable to wear.


Invisalign braces are made of a series of thin, clear plastic fittings that have been customized in consultation with a dentist to best match the patient’s bite and deliver the best results.

Each fitting is designed to gently alter the alignment of specific teeth over a period of time, usually around two weeks. As treatment progresses, new Invisalign braces are worn by the patient until the desired result is reached.

Invisalign clear braces mean that they are virtually undetectable in the wearer’s mouth, unlike conventional braces, which are easily noticeable. They also offer other advantages over braces, such as their ease of cleaning, while also not compromising dietary requirements, as they can be removed while a person is eating.

The clear braces used in Invisalign treatment occurs during consultation with a dentist, who will take x-rays of the person’s teeth and gums, as well as impressions of the person’s bite. From this data, the dentist will generate a course of treatment and manufacture each of the fittings required to deliver the desired result.

Once treatment begins, the patient need only return to the dentist’s office at regular intervals to change to the next fitting tray and continue the treatment; with conventional braces, constant adjustments require to be made in order to move the teeth. Clear braces can also be used to only treat and realign specific teeth, whereas braces typically affect several teeth concurrently.

The clear braces of Invisalign offer a host of benefits over traditional orthodontic treatments, and represent an excellent alternative for anyone looking to improve their smile and say goodbye to crooked teeth.
