What You Need To Know About Invisalign

When you are a middle-schooler, having braces is hardly an eyesore, it’s commonplace. While your mouth may feel awkward and you are self-conscious, everyone else in your age bracket is experiencing the same thing. But what if your teeth have shifted since you were in middle school? As an adult, you do not want to relive the middle school awkwardness without your peers going through the same thing. But, crooked teeth are no better. Fortunately, there is an alternative.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a way to get the straighter teeth you crave without the noticeable, painful metal braces. Invisalign is not obvious to spot in the mouth because it is a clear plastic tray that is placed in your mouth to help shift your teeth. At the beginning of the procedure, tooth impressions are made and from those, your Invisalign trays are made. Every two weeks the Invisalign trays are replaced as your teeth shift into the perfect smile you crave. The trays can be worn all day and night with the exception of eating and drinking. The whole Invisalign process typically lasts 12-48 months, which is no longer than it would take to straighten your teeth with braces.
