Invisalign is a highly-respected and universally accepted proprietary process of orthodontic treatment that utilizes a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that act as an alternative to conventional metal dental braces. As of 2008, more than 750,000 patients have completed or are currently wearing the clear aligners known as Invisalign.
Cosmetically, Invisalign has a clear advantage over braces, because the aligners are 100% transparent and thereby far more difficult to distinguish than traditional wire and bracket braces. For this reason, this method is particularly popular with adults and teenagers who desire to straighten their teeth without the look of time-honored metal braces, which are customarily worn by children and teenagers alike. Additionally, the clear aligners are touted as being more comfortable than braces. One distinct advantage of Invisalign is the fact that the device is removable, a feature that is highly coveted by patients who don’t want to wear them to social events, for example. Another discernible advantage is that food can be consumed without the hindrance of metallic braces.
