The prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Invisalign® (and other similar companies like Clear Correct) offer an almost invisible aligning system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal.
Treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays, which are changed every few weeks to fit the new tooth configuration. In addition to the reduced visual impact, Invisalign®/Clear Correct aligning trays can be temporarily removed for important occasions – meaning that treatment duration is patient-controlled. A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign®/Clear Corrrect treatment and the stunning results.
Invisalign®/Clear Correct differs from traditional braces in that the aligning trays are fully removable. This means that more discipline and commitment is required from the patient. Life with aligning trays may take several weeks to get used to. The trays should be worn constantly, except when eating and drinking. It is important to remove the trays when consuming food or drink because food can become trapped between the tray and the teeth, causing tooth decay.
Usually, new trays are necessary every two weeks, and progress between appointments can be seen with the naked eye. There is no doubt that Invisalign®/Clear Correct aligning trays have revolutionized orthodontics. Invisalign®/Clear Correct is renowned for being both comfortable and effective.
