What can I treat with the Invisalign system?

As with many orthodontic techniques, there is also a learning curve with the Invisalign system.

What are Invisalign aligners made of?

Invisalign aligners are made from a proprietary construction of biocompatible medical grade thermoplastics that are designed to provide a combination of controlled aligner forces and patient comfort. This material is called SmartTrack. SmartTrack material is an improvement on previous materials as it conforms more precisely to tooth morphology, active surface of attachments and interproximal spaces.  This allows for greater control of tooth movements and finishing.
