What is Invisalign?

Contributed by DentalROI

Invisalign Clear AlignersInvisalign is a highly efficient means of straightening crooked teeth. Perhaps the best part about the Invisalign system is no one knows you are actually using it. Invisalign aligners are completely translucent so those in your vicinity will have no idea your teeth are in the midst of being straightened. This is quite the stark contrast to those metal braces that take months or even years longer to straighten wayward teeth. Though Invisalign cannot correct extreme bite problems as braces can, these invisible aligners move teeth into the perfect position to enhance a patient's smile in a year or less. Alternatively, braces typically take longer to straighten teeth and almost always diminish the patient's confidence.

People have their teeth crowned to repair sections damaged by decay, to replace a lost tooth as a component of a dental implant system, to cover a cosmetically damaged tooth, restore a cracked/broken tooth and simply add more stability to a tooth weakened by root canal therapy.
