What are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are orthodontic devices that are a transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. They are custom-made for each patient and gradually move teeth into their desired positions. Clear aligners are popular for their aesthetic appeal, comfort, and convenience.

Fixed Braces or Clear Aligners


Traditional fixed braces are metal brackets attached to the teeth with wires and tiny rubber bands. Invisalign or clear braces are thin plastic aligners which work to align the teeth discretely and effectively.
