When it comes to orthodontic care, the first thing that pops into mind is traditional metal braces. Fortunately, there are other orthodontic alternatives, such as clear aligners like Invisalign. This option works well for those with mild to moderate alignment issues. These clear, flexible plastic trays are highly effective and can be removed for eating, drinking, or cleaning. They need to be worn for 22 hours a day and be replaced every 2 weeks. This process will continue until the desired alignment is achieved. If you’ve been hesitating on aligning your teeth due to the look or uncomfort of metal braces, then this alternative may just be for you!
