What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that helps realign crooked teeth. It is clear, removable aligners developed to the patient’s unique mouth shape and needs. There’ no wires and metal braces involved.
How does Invisalign work?
The clear aligners are different for every mouth, and the doctor will create a plan, which digitally displays how the patient’s teeth move in their mouth throughout the treatment process. The patient will also have an idea of how their teeth will look after the treatment.
What is it made of?
Invisalign is safe for patients who are latex and gluten sensitive and is made with a special flexible plastic called “SmartTrack”. It contains no BPS and BPA.
What are some of the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is virtually invisible. It fits comfortably because it’s designed to each patient’s unique mouth and gum line. There are fewer food restrictions as opposed to metal braces. It is one of the most advanced clear aligner treatments in the world and has already improved 6 million and counting smiles.
Why is Invisalign so successful?
Invisalign uses a special technology that allows the teeth to move gradually with time, and thus there are several aligners to wear during the treatment process.
How do I know if I’m a right candidate for Invisalign treatment?
