Invisible braces are a new technology that replaces the wires that orthodontists have traditionally used to straighten teeth. These invisible braces are clear plastic dental appliances that cover all of the upper and or lower teeth. Typically they are worn in pairs. These appliances are usually worn for a two week period and are then replaced with a new set. This process continues until the orthodontist has achieved the straightening desired. This new technique is not recommended for children whose teeth and jaws are still developing.
