Invisalign Teeth Straightening

in Teeth

Gone are the days when one had to use metal braces to get one's teeth straightened. Now, those with overly crowded teeth or widely spaced teeth can look their best with Invisalign. Invisalign teeth straightening procedure is considered a safe and comfortable treatment option to improve your bite and smile.

Invisalign - The Perfect Way to Achieve a Beautiful Smile

Invisalign is an invisible way of teeth straightening. It is completely new, a great advancement in orthodontics. It has proven to be a highly effective treatment option for a number of complex orthodontic issues such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Through a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign can realign the misaligned teeth without the risks and hassles associated with metal brackets and wires. These aligners are custom made, fabricated using 3-D computer imaging technology. These aligners skillfully move your teeth to the desired position.

Advantages of Invisalign

Developed as a clear alternative to traditional or ceramic braces, Invisalign offers many advantages.

• Ease and comfort
• Virtually invisible
• Removable
• Less dental visits
• Easy oral hygiene
• Best results

Completely Convenient and Removable

Your Invisalign treatment duration varies, depending on your dental condition and the type of tooth movements you need. The treatment itself takes an average time of 9 to 15 months. Depending on your teeth's specific condition, you may have to receive about 18 to 30 aligners throughout the entire treatment process - each of which is to be worn for about two weeks. You need to wear the aligners full-time, both day and night - to get the desired results.

It is recommended to visit the orthodontist about once every four to six weeks so as to monitor the improvement and to ensure proper treatment. As these Invisalign braces are removable, you can take them off while drinking, eating, brushing, and flossing. Removing and placing these aligners is simple; however, it would be best to follow the guidelines and instructions provided by the orthodontists. Choosing the right orthodontist is an important part of the overall process of undergoing Invisalign teeth straightening procedure.
