Like brackets and arch wires, Invisalign braces or aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign braces not only control forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. Instead of pulling your teeth to their target position like traditional braces, Invisalign pushes your teeth to its location. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. Invisalign 3D imaging technology plans out the movement and figures out how many aligners will be needed to get the job done.
Invisalign Express for example is more affordable, because it is for minor spacing issues and needs very few aligners to get the job done. Invisalign is revolutionary because instead of the “metal bracket” traditional braces, Invisalign is invisible while still straightening your teeth.
Invisalign Dentists and Orthodontists will tell you that not wearing your Invisalign aligners might be the more important mistake young adults make during treatment. Unlike traditional fixed braces, they are largely dependent on a patient’s habits and their consistency in wearing the aligners. Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth, but there are always bumps in the road.
