Invisalign has become the most popular orthodontic aligner for teens and adults. It is a metal-free alternative to metal braces. This aligner is made from a clear material almost invisible when worn. It could be an excellent option for you if you are concerned about the aesthetics of your smile.
What Is Invisalign?Invisalign is a series of clear aligners designed to gradually shift your teeth to the desired position. These aligners are customized according to your dental issues and are virtually invisible when worn.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?The main advantage of Invisalign is that it is transparent, unlike braces. Hence, they are virtually invisible, allowing you to have a natural-looking smile. Invisalign also works better than conventional braces as they can efficiently treat various dental issues such as crowded and overlapping teeth, overbite, underbite, etc. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can remove them while eating and brushing your teeth. However, you must follow the instructions provided by your dentist so that the aligners stay in place for the entire duration of treatment.
Invisalign can treat dental problems in adults as well as children as they can comfortably treat issues such as overbite, underbite, misaligned teeth, etc., in both adults and teenagers. They are very comfortable to wear as they are made from a soft plastic material. They are more comfortable than other orthodontic aligners, such as metal braces, as they do not put any pressure on your jawbone or surrounding tissues.
How Does Invisalign Work?Invisalign works through the same process as traditional braces. After getting an X-ray, we will determine your dental issue and create a 3D digital model to show how your teeth will move once treated with Invisalign. We will take measurements of your mouth and send them to the laboratory, where a set of aligners will be created based on the data received from the scans.
The dentist will give you a set of aligners every two weeks or based on your treatment plan. You will have to wear them for at least 22 hours a day to get the desired results as they gently push your teeth into their new positions over time. You will have to get them relined every two weeks to ensure they fit you perfectly and keep moving your teeth into their new positions smoothly.
You will have to visit your dentist regularly for follow-up consultations so that we can monitor your progress and make necessary changes if required.
