Get a New Smile with Invisalign Orthodontic System

Do you want to enjoy a beautiful smile and perfectly aligned teeth, but you don’t want to ruin your smile by wearing the metallic braces? What if you could get your teeth straightened without having to wear the uncomfortable and unaesthetic braces? Invisalign is a system of clear removable aligners that are made from a transparent acrylic material so that they are not visible whenever you speak or smile.

How Invisalign Works?

Unlike the braces which are permanently attached to your teeth during the course of orthodontic treatment, the Invisalign aligners are removable appliances. However, they need to be worn for at least 22 hours in a day in order to provide the desired results. The aligners are fabricated in such a way that they exert precise and controlled forced onto the teeth and bring about tooth alignment and movement. Each aligner is worn for 14 days, and then it is replaced with a new set of upper and lower aligners.

Steps involved in Treatment with Invisalign Clear Aligners

Following steps are involved in treatment with the Invisalign aligners:

  • Pre-operative Evaluation – before orthodontic treatment can be initiated, your dentist will have e detailed look at your medical and dental records so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be initiated.
  • Making an Impression – once treatment plan has been formulated, your dentist will make a digital impression of your teeth. This impression is then fed into the computer and sent to the laboratory for fabrication of the aligners.
  • Receiving Your Aligners – at the next appointment you will receive your aligners. You will have to wear these aligners for at least 22 hours in a day for about two week which will then be replaced with another set of aligners. This process continues until the desired results have been achieved.
  • Retention – once the treatment has been completed, the teeth need to be retained so that they do not move back to their previous misaligned state. Invisalign offers Vivera retainers for this purpose, however, last used aligners can also function as retainers.

Benefits of Invisalign over other Treatment Options

Invisalign provides the following benefits over the convention orthodontic treatment options:

  • Convenience – unlike the braces you can wear and remove your Invisalign aligners at your own will.
  • Eat Anything You like – if you are wearing braces, you cannot eat hard and sticky food items which means that you will miss out on many of your favorite foods. On the other hand, you can remove your Invisalign aligners before eating, therefore you can enjoy all of your favorite foods.
  • Reparability – in case you accidentally break your aligners, you can easily get them repaired or replaced.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene – brushing and flossing your teeth becomes difficult with your braces. However, you can enjoy an excellent oral health with the Invisalign aligners since you can easily remove them before brushing or flossing.
