Are Invisalign aligners better than conventional braces?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
While straightening the teeth is often a desire for many adult patients, most avoid talking to their dentist about it for fear of being told metal brackets and wires were the only way to achieve results. However, the field of dentistry continues to improve, and now there are other ways for patients to reposition their teeth without the use of traditional braces: Invisalign orthodontics.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method of orthodontia that was developed in the late ’90s and continues to be one of the trusted and most revolutionary solutions for teenagers and adults seeking treatment of malocclusion. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays instead of brackets and wires to move the teeth. The trays are custom-made and designed from 3D images of the patient’s current smile. Using 3D technology, the Invisalign laboratory will create a series of trays that can be used to gently reposition the teeth in the smile to improve tooth and bite alignment in patients with mild to moderate misalignment.
