Read on to learn more about Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible tooth straightening tool. It is completely the opposite of the traditional braces, which are not only visible but quite discomforting as well. It involves use of aligners to straighten teeth but the best part is that this could be done without letting anyone know that you are wearing something on your teeth to align them. Isn’t this a wonderful new way to remove imperfections of your teeth?
The Science Behind Invisalign
Invisalign is a series of teeth aligners created from invisible material. These are custom-made according to the size of your teeth, which is why these offer a perfect fit.
It is a new-age approach to teeth straightening. Invisalign is actually aligner braces created from smooth, flexible and invisible medical grade thermoplastic material.
It does not contain Bisphenol-A or Phthalate plasticizers but only USP Class VI high molecular weight, polyurethane resins. The materials have been comprehensively tested and declared as completely safe for human oral wear.
Firstly you will contact us or any other trained and certified Invisalign provider who will take X-rays, impressions and pictures of your teeth.
These images will help in creating a 3D digital image for creating a set of Invisalign braces. A precise treatment plan will be devised for your teeth such as the movements and the length of treatment.
The treatment process also involves a virtual presentation of the way your teeth will change as the treatment proceeds.
How It Works?
Firstly, the dentist will measure your teeth and then the precise set of Invisalign braces will be created especially for you. Invisalign will gradually and gently shift your teeth into their ideal place. We will evaluate the exact movement required to fix your teeth or you may ask your orthodontist to do so for you.
Wearing Invisalign clear braces is quite easy and fun. Unlike metal braces that are to be attached with wires and fixed with brackets, you only have to pop in these plastic braces and keep them on for at least two weeks. After two weeks, you will have to put on a new set of Invisalign braces and this shifting will go on until you get the desired results.
