The “Invisalign® ” method was introduced in the USA in 1997.
The “aligners”, as they are called, are appliances made of thin transparent material of merely 0,6 mm.
The calculated adjustment of the teeth is translated by computer into a sequence of steps: one separate aligner for each step. Each aligner is custom-made for each step of adjustment. Utmost comfort in the mouth is always guaranteed. The final alignment of the teeth is thus reached in a “step by step” process wearing one aligner after another.
Dental hygiene is no problem because these aligners are removable. But they must be worn 22 hours a day for the desired results. Aligners are not suitable for all adjustments, least of all for a considerable adjustment of occlusion.

Invisalign Teen® (orthodontic for Teenagers)
Invisalign® Teen is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and clear, which means the teenagers can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. The teenagers can still eat and drink what they want. Also, they can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth, and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions. With blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign® Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!
