Invisalign

A beautiful smile not only makes one look more attractive but also radiates individual’s self-confidence.

Invisalign is a special orthodontic treatment procedure using invisible braces to straighten the teeth. The treatment involves using a series of clear, removable thermoplastic aligners that are custom-made for a patient. In contrast to the conventional way of teeth straightening with metal wires and brackets, this treatment works much faster. Moreover, as the Invisalign braces are hardly visible, there is very little chance for the world to know that one is undergoing the treatment.

What is the treatment process?

Dental expert will take digital x-rays, moulded impressions and photographs of your teeth to design a unique roadmap for the treatment. Patients even get to see the virtual images of predictable changes resulting from the treatment. So, patients know from the beginning how their teeth will change shapes over the following weeks, months and finally, at the end of the treatment.

How does it work?

Just like conventional brackets and wires, the Invisalign aligner moves teeth by applying controlled force on the teeth. Along with applying controlled force, it also controls the timing of the force. Thus, the Invisalign procedure yields faster and more predictable results.

What are the benefits associated with it?

Compared to traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign provides lot of benefits.

What are the costs of the treatment?

What are some frequently asked questions about invisalign?

How much time is required?

The treatment usually takes 9 to 18 months and a patient needs to visit the orthodontist in every 4 to 6 weeks. One needs to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day for get the proper effect. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and after that they are replaced by the next one in the series.

Who is the right candidate for the treatment?

There are no strict eligibility criteria for this treatment. Invisalign treatment is ideal for almost everyone. However, it is not recommended in certain cases. A consultation with our expert will confirm whether an individual is ideal to undergo the teeth straightening treatment.

Is it painful?

Invisalign aligners remain almost invisible inside the mouth. However, one is likely to feel minor aches and pains during the first few days of changing aligners. This pain arises as the teeth adjust themselves to their new and expected positions. The pain is thus a positive signal to judge the treatment is going along the right way. 

What problems can it cure?

It cures problems of overbite, crooked or misshapen teeth, excessive gaping between teeth, cross bite and other problems.
