What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the process of wearing a series of removable aligners that help in teeth straightening. There are no wires and brackets needed with these braces.

Invisalign is a suitable option for both teenagers and adults who are looking for an invisible method to correct their smile. With the latest innovations and technological advancements, it is now easy to fix almost all kinds of oral complications such as teeth straightening and biting issues without interrupting your daily life.

How can Invisalign help to straighten your teeth?

Your Invisalign provider will create a customised treatment plan for the exact movement of your teeth. These clear aligners are designed in a way that applies proper force at the right place and exact time, depending on your plan. He will assist you at every step to evaluate the progress and ensure that the aligners fit properly.

Since your smile is unique, the treatment begins with an initial consultation with the doctor. He will sit together with you to discuss the treatment best suited for your smile. Thus, you can get straighter teeth and a confident smile with these aligners.

What can you expect during the consultation?

Your Invisalign provider will discuss the teeth straightening goals and examine your present smile to meet your specific needs. He will tell you the treatment cost and the time needed to regain your attractive smile.

After this, he will fix an appointment for a dental check-up and mouth cleaning before starting with the treatment. This ensures your teeth and gums are in good condition in order to prevent unnecessary risks associated with the treatment.

How often should you change the aligners?

Your doctor will tell how often you need to change your aligners. This will actually depend on your treatment plan, however, Invisalign providers usually suggest changing them weekly or in every alternate week.

How many hours should you wear the aligners in a day?

You will have to wear the braces for 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best possible result. You can remove them at the time of brushing, flossing, eating and drinking.

Can you get the treatment on top or bottom teeth only?

Invisalign treatment can be done for just top or bottom teeth, however, you should consult with the Invisalign provider to meet your exact need.

How long will the treatment take?

The treatment time will depend on several factors such as the complexity of your case and how often you have to wear the aligners. Your doctor will determine the time needed depending on your exact requirement. Invisalign treatments usually require 12 to 18 months though you can see the results within a few weeks.
