Dental aligners (ClearPath, Invisalign) are not suitable for all patients. Aligners are great for people who do not have severe problems. Aligners are made of clear high grade medical plastic and are computer fabricated. These types of braces offer a very comfortable and aesthetic treatment option. They are used to straighten teeth but are limited towards more complex tooth movements. These aligning trays can be removed for eating and cleaning and has a very small effect on your speech. Aligners are manufactures abroad and are not cost effective. Patient compliance is essential to ensure an acceptable result.
In my personal opinion, it is best to get Invisalign done by an orthodontist, who has been specially trained in tooth movement.
