How Invisalign works
Invisalign consists of a series of aligners, which are made from clear, flexible plastic and look similar to a mouth guard or whitening tray. Aligners shift the upper and lower teeth by applying pressure. After a few weeks, you'll switch out your aligner for another one in order to continue the process. The number of aligners you need and how long you wear them will be determined by our dentists at the San Diego office.
The benefits of Invisalign
As you can imagine, the clear aligners remove the obvious aspects of wearing braces. You can discreetly and comfortably wear your aligners to work and social events without feeling self-conscious. Another feature setting Invisalign apart is that the aligners can and should be removed when eating and drinking. This gives you the freedom and comfort to enjoy the little things in life. Brushing and flossing your teeth is also easier; simply pop the aligners out to brush and floss with ease. Make sure to clean your aligners regularly too.
