What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a brand name. It is one of the first clear aligners that has been used as a solution for teeth alignment. A flexible thermoplastic material called SmartTrack is used in the manufacturing of this aligner.

The Invisalign website states that it can be used in both adult and pediatric patients. It helps fix the following issues:

  • Biting issues like crossbite, underbite, overbite and open bite
  • Teeth gap
  • Teeth straightening
  • Crowded teeth

  • Brushing your teeth
  • Eating food
  • Cleaning the aligner
