Advantages of Invisalign over Regular braces

Invisalign are clear aligners used for orthodontic treatment. The aligners are a series of invisible, removable orthodontic appliances that fit over your teeth. Your teeth are 3D scanned and the appliance is custom made on your teeth to guarantee a perfect fit. In order to get the smile you always wanted, simply wear the aligner every day for at least 21 hours. They are only taken off to eat, drink, brush and floss.
