How Invisalign Works, Using Some Pretty Cool Technology (video)

Gum Disease Treatment 2 - Royal Oak, MI | North Oaks Dental

There’s not much we do in our daily lives that hasn’t been made more user-friendly by technology, from taking photos to driving a car. So it’s not surprising to find that some pretty cool technology is also behind how Invisalign works.

You may know that Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets to straighten your teeth. But did you know that special software is used to create your treatment plan? Or that your aligners are made using 3D printing? Or that biomedical engineers developed the “smart” plastic used for the aligners?

Watch this video to find out more about how Invisalign works and the technology behind the product. Then call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522 to talk to one of our two Royal Oak, MI orthodontists about Invisalign.
