What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, include no metal brackets or wires and are custom made for your teeth.
They work in a series of SmartTrack Aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each aligner is manufactured so that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray. Your teeth will typically move up to 0.25 mm per aligner.
Every two weeks, you change for a new set, slowly moving your teeth towards their ideal positions.
RELATED: What does treatment include?
The aligners should be worn for a minimum for 22 hours a day but can be removed for eating, drinking and brushing your teeth.
