Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening teeth. The patient will wear a series of nearly invisible clear plastic trays to gradually align the teeth. Each tray is worn approximately 2 weeks on average. The average treatment time is usually between 12 to 24 months. There no unsightly metal brackets and wires. The trays can be removed while eating and brushing; therefore, there is no food restriction and it is easy to maintain oral hygiene during treatment. In certain instances, even teenager can be qualified for Invisalign treatment. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Tyan can determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.
