Did you know that orthodontics is becoming easier and more convenient than ever? Thanks to Invisalign, you might not have to spend two years in braces. Invisalign has slowly gained popularity among dentists, orthodontists and patients since its creation in 1997. Here’s why:

Invisalign aligners are dental trays created from a custom-made thermoplastic material designed to straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign’s clear trays are discrete and comfortable. They’re also removable, making it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
While braces typically take two years to work, Invisalign can do the job in six to eighteen months, depending on your needs.

There are certain dental issues that can only be corrected through braces, though patients with these issues are the minority. These include bridgework, teeth that need to move vertically, back tooth bite issues, or canine-premolar issues. In addition, you may consider braces if you or your child would not have the discipline to keep the Invisalign trays in for 22 hours or more every day.
