If you’ve been considering orthodontic treatment but metal/ceramic braces turn you off, then Invisalign (nearly invisible braces) might be the next best thing. Still interested? Let’s know more -
Invisalign are frequently used to correct crowding, misaligned and crooked teeth. It appears like teeth-whitening tray and need to be worn for 18-22 hours daily. It straightens your teeth as normal braces do except its almost invisible. The procedure involves a series of removable aligners that you wear in sequence. Our orthodontist will require the following to create a customized treatment plan -
• Patient Extraoral & Intraoral Photographs
• Complete examination of your teeth
• Supporting X rays
If you’re a good fit for the treatment, our orthodontist will create a model to figure out where your teeth ought to move to. Depending on your case, you may need from 6 to 48 aligners for your treatment to be effective. This number varies from person to person. Each of the aligners will move your teeth up to 0.33 mm before you change to the next aligner.You would be expected to change aligners every week or in two weeks. For optimal results, you need to fully commit to the customized plan and wear your aligners the way your orthodontist suggests (minimum 22 hours each day). The good news is that you can remove them for short periods like during eating or drinking & definitely while brushing.
