Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth and incrementally move your teeth into the desired straight position. The aligners are replaced every two weeks and are worn about 22 hours during the day. They are removed to eat and drink but can be worn while drinking water. Invisalign is most effective at treating minor to moderate tooth crowding or spacing issues. They are comfortable and speech is most often not affected. Traditional braces utilize either metal or ceramic tooth colored brackets to move teeth into the desired position. In many cases traditional braces tend to move teeth faster and are recommended for more complex movements.
