Invisalign, A Modern Way to Straighten Your Teeth

Invisalign Aligners are virtually invisible, removable, comfortable aligners that can effectively straighten misaligned teeth. The advantage of this treatment is that these aligners are almost invisible. Moreover, Invisalign aligner trays can be easily removed to provide you with the convenience of eating and drinking, and also brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. Another key advantage is that these aligners are constructed of a comfortable plastic that won’t be irritating to your gums and cheeks. These plastic aligners have no metal that causes mouth abrasions during the course of treatment.

Invisalign aligners are constructed from clear plastic that is transparent and not easily seen by onlookers and have none of the unsightly features associated with metal braces. Unlike traditional braces, there are no brackets to hold the aligner in place so that they don’t come off and there are no wires or ligatures that can break and irritate your mouth. During eating, drinking, brushing or flossing, the aligners can be easily removed. Typically, Invisalign aligners reduce the prevalence of gum problems and tooth decay that are associated with traditional metal braces. Caring for your Invisalign aligners is easy, since they do not stain and can be removed while eating and drinking.

How It Works?

Invisalign treatment is initiated by taking impressions, pictures, and x-rays of your teeth. Through these imaging techniques, we develop a clear 3-D image that helps us to work precisely and offer the appropriate results. We map out an accurate treatment plan using this image. It also helps us to predict the exact movement of your teeth.

You will be able to go through a virtual representation that depicts the movement of your teeth during every stage of treatment. We offer clear custom-made aligners, which are comfortable and smooth. Wear them at all times except during brushing/flossing or eating to obtain the most favourable results. Since these high-quality braces are invisible, you never feel self-conscious or embarrassed to smile. Through gradual and gentle movement, your teeth shift and take their precise places within the oral cavity.

We replace aligners that you wear every 2-3week. Scheduled check-ups at our dental clinic helps us to monitor your progress accurately and intervene whenever necessary. For adults the Invisalign process normally takes a year to complete. In the case of teenagers, the results are faster than the use of traditional braces. Those who want the best results from this state of the art highly effective treatment should make sure that they wear the aligners at least 20-22 hours every day.
