Virtually Invisible Braces with Invisalign
Invisalign aligners like the name suggests are an invisible alternative to metal braces and can be used by children, teens as well as adults.
Gone are the days when your teeth were straightened with wires and brackets. Invisalign is a treatment method using a series of clear, removable appliances called aligners which have been specifically designed to fit your teeth.
The aligners gradually cause your teeth to shift their position slightly over a period of two weeks. Every two weeks, you will change your set of aligners and this will cause your teeth to move a little more. Over the weeks and months, your teeth will straighten into their proper positions, as prescribed by your dental practitioner.
What can be treated with Invisalign®
Advantages of Invisalign
- Improbable that anybody will know that you have aligners as they are virtually invisible.
- Removable and hence easy to use and clean. You can brush and floss normally.
- No restrictions on eating and no dietary restrictions need be followed.
- Customized to your teeth. Hence they are comfortable.
- No speech impairment or discomfort.
What is the process of Invisalign treatment?
1. Consultation & Examination by the Specialist Orthodontist
2. Scans and X rays to assess the feasibility and draw out a treatment plan based on the individual complexities.
3. A Digital scan which is then sent across to Align Technology to plan the Invisalign treatment.
4. Review of chin-cheek ratio. Align Technology will revert with a virtual video of the teeth movement from the current position to the expected final position based on the detailed prescription drafted by the Orthodontist.
5. Most importantly, our orthodontist will review the video and make the necessary changes to ensure that movements are feasible and that they produce the desired result. This video is shared with you for your approval and upon your confirmation, Align technology will manufacture the aligner and ship it to us.
