In the past, teeth straightening involved a mouth full of metal braces, but modern dental technology has advanced. Today most people can achieve their best smiles without having any metal in their mouths.
What are Invisalign clear aligners? Let’s dive in and learn more.
While some people with severe crowding and misaligned teeth may need metal braces, people with mild to moderate misaligned teeth can straighten their teeth with Invisalign clear aligners. Clear aligners work in the same way that metal braces work. They use gentle and consistent force to move teeth into their correct and esthetically pleasing positions.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are discreet, and no metal is used in the process. These aligners are very thin and clear, and you can take them out when eating your meals and brushing your teeth. Most adults find Invisalign clear aligners to be much more comfortable and practical than braces
