Traditional orthodontic care has been around since the early 19th century, with vast improvements over the last 200 years. However, relapse after tooth alignment is much more common than most people know. Some estimates show the relapse rate after ten years to be as high as fifty percent, especially where the patient does not use a retainer as suggested by their orthodontist.
For people who had braces and want to restore their teeth alignment, Invisalign can be a great option. This approach to orthodontic care replaces the metal and wire appliances of the past with a series of clear plastic aligner trays. These trays are made just for you and gently move your teeth into pre-planned positions based on your initial evaluation.
