If you are considering Invisalign but still aren’t sure exactly what they are, we have created a brief article listing three unique things about them.
Aligners Are Switched Out every Two Weeks
If you aren’t familiar with how Invisalign works, then you may be surprised to know that you will switch your aligners out every two weeks. By switching out your aligners every two weeks, they work to slowly push your teeth toward the perfect position. Each customized aliner gets you one step closer to your perfect smile.
