Over time, this system shifts your teeth into a more ideal position using gentle pressure that is placed on them by the aligners.

It’s a Comfortable Way to Realign Your Smile
Truth be told, having metal brackets and wires installed in your mouth can be a real drag. It makes for an awkward and painful process, even if it does produce reasonable results. Old-school braces can often cause bleeding and mouth sores, among other problems. But here’s some good news: wearing Invisalign clear aligners is nothing like that at all. This is because Invisalign aligners are made up of a clear plastic material, that does not cut or poke the inside of your mouth.
These Are Removable “Braces”
Check this out: Invisalign clear aligners can actually be removed from your mouth at any time. Fair warning, you do have to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day to keep things moving forward. But still, you can eat, brush your teeth, or snap a selfie, without worrying about your gear complicating the experience.
Invisalign Provides a Fast-Track to a Gorgeous Grin
Like we said, traditional braces typically take about 2-3 gruelling years to complete treatment. By contrast, with Invisalign, you can see results in only about 12 months! It all depends on your situation at the onset, but odds are good that you will be able to wrap up the process in a lot less time by using this clear aligner method.
Invisalign Is Practically Invisible
Since they are clear, no one will have to know about the construction zone in your mouth. That means no comments, questions, or nicknames will come your way as a result of wearing Invisalign aligners. You definitely can’t say that about classic metal braces!
