Invisalign aligners : An Overview
If you are self-conscious about your smile, you often try to hide it when you speak, opting to fit in with the surroundings. Your confidence shines through when you are comfortable with your smiles, and you wear it proudly wherever you go. People with crooked teeth wish to improve their smile but they believe that metal braces are the only way to do it. 

Invisalign is a lifesaver for people suffering from moderate to severe orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and crowded teeth.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign therapy includes wearing transparent, removable retainers to gradually straighten your teeth. Traditional braces have brackets, wires, and restrictions that are not present with Invisalign. The aligners are composed of a flexible plastic called SmartTrack, which is a proprietary thermoplastic material designed exclusively for Invisalign treatment. After a brief consultation, our orthodontist dentist will be able to tell if Invisalign is a suitable option for you.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Consult a dentist to begin your Invisalign journey; he will discuss the intended result of your treatment. A 3-D scan of your teeth will be made, which is then used to plan out the precise tooth movement to get the desired final result. A series of clear aligners will be specially designed for you with the aid of 3D printing technology. 

Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign treatment uses a set of clear plastic aligners that are replaced every few weeks to press the teeth into better alignment. 

Five Things to Know About Invisalign

  • When compared to conventional braces, Invisalign allows accurate tooth movement.
  • People can eat anything that they like because Invisalign maintains good health for the teeth.
  • Invisalign is so much more convenient than metal braces. 
  • Invisalign allows you to save time since treatment time periods are often short.
  • People don’t have to visit the doctor frequently with Invisalign.

What Happens After the Treatment?

We suggest wearing a retainer after any orthodontic treatment, whether it's Invisalign or something else. The purpose of a retainer is to keep your teeth aligned correctly. Your teeth gradually move to their previous position if you don't use a dentist-approved retainer. If your teeth begin to shift, you may need to realign them temporarily with the aid of aligners once again.
