Are there any alternatives to braces?
The Invisalign system is a new approach to correcting the positions of the teeth. Instead of braces, retainers are used for aligning the teeth. The retainers are invisible and will gradually guide the teeth into their correct positions. The process is first conducted on a computer to compile a virtual model for the corrections. The retainers are then produced based on the model, and will gradually force the teeth into their correct positions. The patient will receive a new retainer every two weeks. Visits to the orthodontist should take place every 2-3 months, and the duration of the treatment is approximately 1.5 years. Invisalign is a suitable solution in cases of slight and moderate occlusion issues.
