Over 9 million people, including more than 4.3 million children, have used Invisalign clear aligners to transform their smiles. So, how is Invisalign treatment different than other teeth straightening options?
Invisalign treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovation.
Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss. And, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods.
And no other clear aligner is made from Invisalign’s SmartTrack material. This groundbreaking technology helps move your teeth more predictably and in many cases it can help you get the smile you want faster than traditional braces.
All Invisalign aligner and retainer materials are made of medical-grade, high molecular weight, thermoplastic polymers. These materials were selected for use in aligners and retainers based on their properties and safety classification, and have a long history of FDA approvals for long term use inside the human body. Tests conducted to determine the biocompatibility of these materials show they are biocompatible and pass all applicable regulatory requirements and thresholds for human wear in the mouth.The aligners are free of any latex, parabens, phthalates, glutaraldehyde, epoxy or Bisphenol A (BPA).
