Would you like to improve your smile but hate the idea of having to endure traditional orthodontic techniques such as braces? An estimated 1 million people around the world have chosen Invisalign as their orthodontic treatment, alternative to painful ugly metals wires and bands. Invisalign is a virtually invisible, painless method of aligning your teeth through a series of custom aligners.
What Are The Benefits?
Invisalign Treatment Overview
During the first step, the dentist will take impressions and photographs of your teeth and digitize them. Next, the dentist and the Invisalign team will plan out the movement of the teeth using a 3D model. Custom aligners are then generated to fit your specific case. Every couple of weeks, you will change the aligners as prescribed by the dentist. The aligners gradually reposition the teeth little by little until you can enjoy a straight, attractive smile.
Since the aligners are removable, can I take them out whenever I want?
Most patients love the fact that they can take their aligners out for eating, brushing, or on special occasions. For optimal results, you need to wear the aligners about 22 hours a day on a consistent basis.
