Dental appliances have advanced through the years from the traditional braces to the more comfortable aligners. The recent innovation in the field of dentistry has been the inception of clear aligners exemplified by the brand Invisalign.
Invisalign are clear, removable dental aligners that are used to straighten the alignment of the teeth. These aligners are manufactured to fit into the teeth that are in the shape of the teeth.
At our practice, we offer patients with Invisalign for those who would prefer them to braces as they are more comfortable to wear.
Invisalign works by rectifying the alignment of misaligned teeth. Patients are expected to have their aligners changed every two weeks based on the progress of their treatment. Aligners are customized to suit patient needs. Dentists will first capture digital images of the teeth through diagnostic tools such as X-rays. The set of aligners are then engineered with the help of 3D technology into the shape of the teeth. Once they are ready in the labs, they will be inserted into the patient’s teeth.
Patients are advised to wear the aligners for every 20 to 22 hours in a day and have them changed in every two weeks.
Crowded and crooked teeth are bound to destroy the beauty of the smile. The innovative dental appliance Invisalign is designed to correct many types of dental malocclusions.
