Invisalign Treatment

Whаt is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a set of clear braces that can be used to correct a variety of malocclusions. The alignment of your teeth you determine whether you will be a candidate for Invisalign. After special impressions are taken of your teeth, a computer model will be made simulating tooth movement. Once the simulation is approved by your dentist Inviѕаlign fabricates clear aligners which are shipped to your dentist.
