Invisalign treatment is the latest orthodontic development that effectively straightens teeth through the use of a series of clear plastic straighteners. These "invisible" braces eliminate much of the pain, hassle, and discomfort typically associated with more traditional methods. Let’s discuss the Invisible braces treatment system and also the benefits.
To begin, the orthodontist will outline and build several retainers from a set of bite impressions using modern imaging software. Your initial retainer will be customized to your current dental situation. With time, each retainer will gently push the teeth into their desired positions.

Although the number of trays used varies from patient to patient, the average is 18 to 20. Each transparent retainer is detachable and worn all day, except during meals, for two weeks. In most cases, the procedure takes about the same amount of time as most traditional braces.
The most impressive feature of the procedure, in my opinion, is that many patients who use retainers may properly straighten their teeth without others noticing. As things stand, many fully grown adults would prefer to continue living with uncorrected teeth rather than deal with the time and shame of dealing with the metal devices they remember from their childhood.
Patients can brush and floss as they would if they didn't have braces because these retainers are fully removable. This helps to reduce the amount of discoloration and deterioration that is often associated with traditional procedures. Patients can remove their retainer, eat whatever they want, floss, and clean their teeth without restriction.
