How does Invisalign work?
The clear splints used in Invisalign treatment produce tooth movement in a carefully programmed and controlled manner at all times.
The treatment is designed in stages and, in each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move.
Throughout the process, you will wear a specific set of aligners according to the treatment plan designed by our orthodontist. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks and then replaced with the next pair of aligners stipulated in the plan to gradually move the teeth to the final projected position.
