Having straight teeth is a dream for many people, but one of the factors that will often hold a person back from obtaining orthodontic treatment is their dislike for bulky, noticeable brackets. The Invisalign orthodontic system may be the answer for someone looking for a discrete orthodontic option.

 What is Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance that is custom-made for each patient by Align Technology Inc. The company, founded in 1997, continues to provide Invisalign-trained dentists and orthodontists with a viable orthodontic option for patients that prefer to avoid the use of traditional braces.

The Invisalign system moves the teeth into their desirable position in the same way that conventional braces move the teeth during orthodontic treatment, but without the use of bands, brackets, and elastics. Often called “clear braces” in error, Invisalign involves the use of a series of removable clear retainers that are worn over a period of one to two years.
