Invisalign® is an orthodontic technique that uses transparent or invisible custom-made shells for each patient to make orthodontic corrections by gradually moving the teeth. A series of invisible (transparent) shells are made from models of the patient’s malocclusion (dentition to be corrected) and these shells are changed at regular intervals until the final position of the teeth is reached. Alignment shells are also called “invisible gutters”, “invisible aligners” or “invisible dental braces”.
The main advantage of Invisalign® shells is that they are less visible, as this technology does not require the use of wire or braces. However, it should be noted that this orthodontic technique and these dental appliances do not correct all orthodontic problems
