How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign treatment uses 3D computer-imaging technology that helps

is worn for a few weeks after which a new set is given.
The aligners deliver a controlled amount of force that is enough to
shift teeth that are crooked, crowded, or twisted.
Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that is
clear, flexible, strong, and smooth.

Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are removable. You can take your aligners out
for meals, brushing, and flossing. You must clean your aligners and
teeth before putting them on again.

but haven’t noticed because the aligners are nearly invisible.
No food restrictions. If you are wondering whether you can eat

For best results, you need to wear your aligner sets for 20 to 22
