What are Invisalign aligner trays?

Invisalign, a treatment introduced in the 90s, is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic trays to align teeth. The custom-made trays fit over teeth and apply slight pressure against teeth so as to move them into their proper position. so they must be custom-designed. For the next 9 to 12 months, patients receive a new tray every two weeks to continue applying slight pressure on the misaligned teeth until they're all properly aligned.

How are Invisalign aligner trays made?

Your Beavercreek dentist creates custom Invisalign trays fitted to your smile. Dr. Uzzel does this by taking digital impressions of your teeth. Once the trays are made, you're to wear the aligners 20-22 hours a day, only removing them while eating and brushing teeth, to maximize the impact of the orthodontic treatment plan.
