Clear Aligners (Invisalign, Tru-Line, Clear Correct) is a very popular orthodontic system that is able to treat a wide variety of problems. It uses removable aligner trays made from a clear plastic and which fit tightly but comfortably over the teeth. These trays will gradually move your teeth into the correct positions and must be worn for approximately twenty two hours each day. Every two weeks you simply exchange your current aligners for your next set until treatment is complete.
We find many people like this system as the aligners are virtually invisible and are easy to take out whenever you eat or drink, and for brushing and flossing. Most adults will typically complete treatment within a year. Compliance is vital for this system as forgetting to wear your aligners will prolong treatment times.
