The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners used to straighten teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made after Dr. Kuntz takes impressions of your teeth and sends them to a lab. The lab makes the custom aligners especially for you using computerized technology.
The Invisalign aligners are clear and are barely visible to others compared to metal orthodontic braces with brackets and wires. With the guidance of Dr. Kuntz, you move to the next set of Invisalign aligners usually after about 3 weeks. The number of Invisalign aligners will depend on the individual patient and the orthodontic problem. The Invisalign aligners are generally fairly comfortable. There can be some discomfort or mild pain when a new Invisalign aligner is placed as it exerts pressure on the teeth to move them
