Invisalign® aligners, developed by Align Technology, Inc. (“Align”) consist of a series of clear plastic, removable appliances that move the teeth in small increments. Invisalign® products combine a doctor’s diagnosis and prescription with sophisticated computer graphics technology to develop a treatment plan which specifies the desired movements of the teeth during the course of the treatment. Upon approval of a treatment plan developed by the doctor, a series of customized Invisalign® aligners is produced specifically for the treatment.
Attachments may be bonded to one or more teeth during the course of treatment to facilitate tooth movement and/or appliance retention. These will be removed after treatment is completed.
