A beautiful and long-lasting smile is what we all desire. For decades, orthodontic braces have been the common means of fixing issues concerning one's bite or alignment. Dental braces make use of wires and elastic bands to move badly aligned teeth to its correct position. Today, Invisalign is being a popular method of correcting orthodontic conditions such as bite problems, misalignments, overcrowding, etc.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of custom-made, tray-like aligner that is designed to be worn over the surface of the teeth to straighten misaligned or badly crooked teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
The orthodontist would be the dental specialist that decides where aligners are the best choice of treatment for your orthodontic condition. He/she would create a detailed plan of treatment which would include several versions of aligners that would help make adjustments to your teeth, guiding its way as it moves, to a straighter and beautiful smile.
Invisalign is made from acrylic material or clear plastic. Patients can comfortably brush, floss, and rinse as Invisalign is removable adding convenience during your treatment.
What is the procedure involved in getting Invisalign?
Invisalign could be the next advanced level of straightening your teeth without the need for dental braces.
The process of getting Invisalign begins with a dental consultation where the orthodontist would examine the patient's teeth with the help of digital X-rays. The orthodontist would diagnose your condition and draw a customized treatment plan. These digital images of the teeth would help the dentist to help you choose the right aligner. During your next consultation, the orthodontist would place the aligners. Your treatment plan would have the exact duration over which each aligner must be used before changing to the next set of aligners.
