What are Invisalign Aligners Made of?
Invisalign aligners are clear aligners that can be used on teens and adults who have mild, moderate or severely crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbites, overbites, open bites or underbites. They are made of a durable medical-grade plastic polymer that is virtually invisible when placed on teeth. Our Rocklin orthodontist uses advanced images and 3-D technology to create a treatment plan and craft each customized aligner. The treatment process uses precise, carefully planned movements of each tooth to create the desired results. The aligners are replaced every two weeks as your teeth begin to shift into alignment.
Our advanced technology allows you to preview your new smile and make any necessary adjustments before your treatment begins. Once the aligners have been crafted, your treatment can begin. You can enjoy all your favorite activities during treatment with Invisalign, and no one ever needs to know that you are even wearing them. The aligners are removable, which makes eating, drinking and dental hygiene much simpler. Keeping your teeth clean and healthy throughout treatment can enhance your results and leave your smile looking great at the conclusion of your treatment.
Unlike the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign has nothing to poke, rub or irritate your sensitive oral tissues. The smooth plastic aligners are comfortable to wear even during sleep. You will only need to remove them to brush or eat.
