Orthodontic treatments are performed to restore chipped, crooked, broken, and misaligned teeth. When you opt for such a procedure, you not only expect to restore your smile but are also equally concerned about your appearance during the phase of treatment. Traditional wire braces are a common orthodontic procedure, but they affect the appearance of your smile at large. In this situation, opting for a better alternative, such as Invisalign, makes the right choice.
Invisalign involves the use of a thin, transparent, removable plastic aligner formed using the CAD-CAM lab technique, helping your teeth move to their suitable position. This procedure uses a modern and innovative approach to restore your teeth without affecting the appearance of your smile. When you visit our dentist for the treatment, you can also see the predicted outcome of the procedure using Invisalign software.
During the initial consultation with our dentist, they will examine your teeth, mouth, jaw and assess all your dental needs. Now, they will create Invisalign for you. The whole process uses 3D technology imaging over putty impressions. These images create each aligner to match the exact specifications required to move your teeth rightly. They may also use tooth-colored enamel attachment to assist your aligner in moving teeth. These attachments are quite similar to the braces glued to the front teeth.
During each visit, the dentist will give you multiple aligners that will last until your next visit. We will take you through their detailed usage. Each of them is to be worn for 1-2 weeks before switching to the next one. You will have to make frequent visits to our dental clinic every 6-8 weeks to get your mouth and teeth assessed and to get the next set.
