Invisalign and Orthosnap are brand names of orthodontic treatments that use a series of clear & removable trays, called aligners, to move teeth into the correct places without using metal wires or brackets. These clear orthodontic treatments use state-of-the-art technology to make custom aligners for each individual patient’s needs. It can correct many types of alignment issues in less time than traditional braces. Both Invisalign and Orthosnap use clear, medical-grade plastic, so the aligners are almost invisible while they're being worn. The aligners are also very smooth, so they don't irritate lips or cheeks. The aligners are removable so it is possible to quickly take them out to eat.
Invisalign and Orthosnap trays are designed to move teeth into their correct positions. The dentist begins by taking a series of dental impressions to reflect the pre-treatment positions of teeth. The impressions are sent to a lab where special design and modeling software create a series of three-dimensional virtual models that show where teeth need to be moved for proper alignment. The trays are customized based on the mouth shape and orthodontic needs of each patient. Each tray is worn for about two weeks before being traded for the next tray in the series to keep teeth moving in the right direction.
