Invisalign™ is a method of orthodontic treatment, which uses a series of transparent, removable aligners creating clear braces that are used as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces.
The most obvious advantage of the treatment is cosmetic: the aligners are completely transparent, therefore far more difficult to detect. This makes the method very popular among adults needing braces and has been marketed as being more comfortable than metal braces.
Invisalign makes flossing easier than with traditional braces so wearers only need to remove the trays rather than threading floss around brackets. There are no restrictions on foods, unlike traditional braces that make popcorn and other foods off-limits. The cost for Invisalign braces varies by patient and is best discussed in person during a consultation or exam.
