Invisalign

Invisalign is the dominant provider of clear aligners for orthodontic treatment and therefore has the name recognition.

It should be noted that there are other clear aligner providers in the marketplace such as Clear Correct or Orthoclear. Instead of using braces to move and align teeth a sequential series of thin clear aligners are used to move and align teeth.

This method of orthodontic treatment has become much more sophisticated and reliable over the approximately 20 years of development. One positive aspect of clear aligner treatment is that the aligners are almost invisible so others will not likely notice that you are in orthodontic treatment.

Another positive feature is that the aligners can be taken out to eat, brush your teeth, for important presentations, for photographs and so on. You do not have to be careful about hard, crunchy or sticky foods like you do with braces. Oral hygiene is easier than with braces.

Talk to your orthodontist about your treatment and if clear aligners treatment is a possibility for you.
