If you’re looking for ways to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the right solution for you. Keep reading to learn more about this procedure.

What Conditions Can Invisalign Treat?

Invisalign is used to treat the same conditions that traditional metal braces have been used to treat in the past. If you have an overbite, crowded teeth, crooked teeth, an underbite, or spacing problems, Invisalign can usually help correct these issues.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign treatments come with a series of trays that are fitted to your teeth. These trays are clear so they aren’t very noticeable. They should be worn all the time except when you are eating, drinking, or cleaning your teeth. Throughout the process, you’ll swap old trays for newer trays as your teeth move into the correct position.

Invisalign offers a subtler, more comfortable way to straighten your teeth than traditional braces, which makes Invisalign a good option for adults as well as self-conscious teens and children. Because the trays can be easily removed, it is much easier to keep your teeth clean when using this straightening method.
