How Do Clear Aligners Work?
All orthodontic re-positioning of teeth works on the same basis: application of appropriate force, at the right place, at the right time. Clear aligners are simply another delivery system for these forces packaged in comfortable, transparent medical-grade plastic.
All patients are provided with a series of differently positioned aligners that are worn at various times during the treatment period. Each one applies force a little differently, and, over time, the teeth begin to move little by little until they are eventually in the desired position.
Are Clear Aligners Better Than Traditional Braces?
Invisalign has helped many people get the smile they always wanted and which they may never have achieved if metal braces were the only option. In that sense, Phoenix Invisalign is better than metal braces.
Metal and ceramic braces, however, remain an invaluable tool in the orthodontist’s toolkit, and no orthodontist that we are aware of is ready to give up traditional braces anytime soon. Clear aligners are better in the sense it has allowed more people to achieve their best possible smile and feel better about their appearance. Learn more about metal braces vs Invisalign.
