Quiz: Let’s See How Much You Know About Invisalign

Are you aware of what Invisalign treatment can offer patients? This orthodontic treatment, which can help younger patients, an adults, offers a chance to correct crooked teeth without impacting your appearance in any obvious ways. Many patients assume orthodontic work will inevitably include hard to ignore metal braces. With Invisalign, a series of clear aligners will be designed for you to wear. They are hard to observe, and capable of making adjustments to your smile over time. As you move from one aligner to the next, your teeth are being steadily brought towards their corrected positions. With Propel orthodontics, you are actually able to complete a treatment in less time.
