Your dentist and their team use clear aligners made from computer-generated images and impressions of your mouth as part of the Invisalign system to straighten your teeth. An Invisalign orthodontist will gradually move your teeth into their ideal position over months as opposed to the conventional brace, which uses fixed wires to “pull” the teeth into alignment.

Your teeth can be realigned with the more contemporary Invisalign braces or the more traditional ones for a straighter smile and better oral health. Dentists and orthodontists have used conventional braces for a long time, but Invisalign is a more recent innovation aiming to serve today’s population better.

Invisalign has benefits and drawbacks, just like any other form of treatment, but the patient must weigh them for themself.

During the same appointment that your preparation work is complete, you will wear your Invisalign braces for the first time. The clear aligners, made based on your impressions, should fit snugly at first. If you feel any pain or discomfort during the initial installation of your Invisalign braces, consult your dentist. Remember that even though you might not initially find them exceptionally comfortable, you will quickly get used to how they feel.
