Four million people have now chosen Invisalign treatment as an alternative to metal braces! This remarkable achievement represents a shift in how adults and teens prefer to straighten their teeth.
The announcement comes from from the makers of the Invisalign system, Align Technology, who stated, “reaching 4 million Invisalign patients in half the time it took to reach 1 million is remarkable and reflects accelerating adoption resulting from nearly 20 years of experience and significant innovation in our products and technology.”
What is Invisalign?
With no wires or brackets required, Invisalign is the most technically advanced clear aligner system in the world. Similar to retainers, you wear the aligner trays for at least 22 hours every day. Treatment begins with the experts at Molen Orthodontics doing a meticulous analysis of your facial structure, jaw, palate and the teeth themselves.
Then, we design a smile that is customized to your face, to enhance your features and preserve your youthful appearance. Once the Invisalign treatment plan is in place, a series of aligners is custom-designed to gradually and effectively guide your teeth into precisely the right position. Every two weeks, you insert your next aligner. It’s really that easy, making it no big surprise that over 4 million people have adopted the Invisalign system!
Million Dollar Celebration
To celebrate the four-million-patients milestone Align will donate $1 to Operation Smile for every public share of a photo of a person’s smile on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #4MillionSmiles for a total donation of up to 1 million dollars!
The money will be used to provide life-changing surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. So grab your selfie stick and start posting those Molen Magic Smiles!
