How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly over time, moving them both vertically and horizontally slowly but surely. Invisalign even rotates your teeth as it straightens! The aligners even automatically adjust the amount of force and pressure applied to your teeth depending on the needs at the time. This process occurs automatically and requires 0 adjustment from your dentist!
Invisalign aligners are typically changed every week, as your alignment needs change, a new set of custom fit aligners is applied. The aligners are slowly moving your teeth into place, following a custom treatment plan arranged by your physician. Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
