Invisalign is a patented proprietary system that uses 3D modeling software and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to provide a clear, removable solution for straightening teeth. Invisalign was designed with leading orthodontists and is FDA cleared. Invisalign has the experience of over 1,000,000 patients worldwide, and has a 96% of patient satisfaction rate. And, 9 out of 10 patients would recommend Invisalign to their friends and family.
No, Invisalign uses a completely different approach to straightening teeth. Instead of relying on an interconnected system of metal wires and bands that must be tightened over and over again during treatment to help teeth become straighter, Invisalign uses a series of specially-designed clear plastic trays called aligners that slip over your teeth, gently moving them into proper alignment over time.
Invisalign offers several key advantages, most of which are directly related to the custom-made aligners:
Your treatment begins with a mold or impression of your mouth which is scanned into a computer. Special software creates a series of 3-D images based on your impression to demonstrate the changes your mouth would have to go through to achieve proper alignment. Then the aligners are created to match those images, so when you wear them in order, they'll straighten your teeth. Most treatments can be completed in one to two years using from 18 to 30 aligners.
