Having misaligned/ crowded teeth or a bad bite with spaces in between teeth? Want a beautiful smile but without metallic braces? Invisalign can give you an ideal smile with NO METALLIC LOOKS!
Invisalign are invisible aligners that align your teeth rightly. Gone are the days where metallic braces were the only option to beautify your smile. Invisalign aligners are tight-fitting customized aligners that slip over all your teeth snuggly and do the function of braces.
During the consultation, we brief you on the new smile that you will get and the entire process. We take the impression of your mouth and or use 3D digital scanners and help you visualize the new smile that you will be getting.
Orthodontic treatment (correcting the alignment and bite/ occlusion of your teeth) is a slow but steady process. We monitor it regularly and make necessary adjustments to progress towards the desired smile and occlusion/ bite.
With metal braces, after a little/ planned movement, we tighten the braces slightly to make the gradual alignment correction. In Invisalign, there are a series of aligners. We replace the aligners whenever we need to make the subsequent adjustment/ progress. Depending on your teeth and bite, you will need to change the aligners. Teeth move slowly in the right alignment with each set of new aligners.
The aligners are made of plastic, are see-through and fit snuggly with your teeth. You need to remove them while eating, drinking non-clear liquids, and brushing. But, the rest of the time, at least 22 hours a day, you need to wear them judiciously for the best results.
Treatment usually takes 6 to 24 months. But, if you had ortho/ braces treatment as a child and now you need correction, you may need Invisalign just for 10 weeks.
Invisalign is one of the brands that produce clear, plastic aligners. The plastic is FDA approved and is thin as well as BPA and BPS free, and gluten and latex-free too. Other brands for Invisalign are Clear Correct, Smart moves, and Inman Aligner.
