Are you suffering from crooked or badly shaped teeth, longing for a straighter and healthy set of teeth? Invisalign clear aligners are a minimally invasive way of straightening teeth without the need of using metallic orthodontic devices. Invisalign’s clear, compact, and smooth texture makes it ideal for a comfortable orthodontic treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners are translucent orthodontic brace-like devices made out of heat resistant, thermoplastic material that is used to adjust teeth to its desired location. Dentists use diagnostic devices such as iTero systems to scan the patient's teeth. This helps generate a roadmap that would create a custom treatment plan to restore the patient's crooked teeth. Engineered by using SmartTrack technology, your custom-made aligners help shift teeth efficiently and accurately.
What is the process of getting Invisalign?
Generally, there are several steps involved in getting Invisalign. It starts with an initial consultation with your orthodontist. As you set out to seek help for your orthodontic care, patients would have several options to choose from. Getting Invisalign requires a step-wise process. It initially begins with a consultation. During this step, the orthodontist would take necessary X-rays, photographs, and impressions of the patient's teeth. On the basis of these impressions, the technician would create your custom-aligners using a 3-D rendering technology. Once they are ready, the orthodontist would allow the patient to try them on. The treatment process would require the patient to change their aligner once in every two weeks.
Being removable, patients have the advantage to remove the aligners when needed. Patients can remove the aligners when they wish to eat their favorite food or practice oral hygiene by brushing and flossing their teeth.
