Invisalign has quickly become the most preferred form of orthodontic treatment among teens and adults because it is a nearly invisible treatment. Using clear plastic aligner trays that are worn over the teeth, the teeth are gradually moved into the correct positions. No wires or brackets are used. This adds comfort, convenience and confidence when undergoing treatment, which is why more than 1.5 million people have made Invisalign their choice for treatment. However, as a dentist for Invisalign in Poughkeepsie, we understand that many people believe Invisalign is not the right treatment due to various myths that surround the use of the aligner trays. Dr. Hamburg is here to break the myths about Invisalign with the facts you need to know.
