Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that we use to straighten and align your teeth without metal braces. The procedure uses a custom-made transparent tray to cover your teeth while gently pushing or pulling misaligned teeth into their right positions.
As people have become more conscious about their smiles, they are using this transparent restoration option to improve them. You may schedule an appointment with us and opt for this service at affordable prices.
Why Do I Need Invisalign?
If your teeth are overcrowded and do not have sufficient space within your jaw, it may become difficult for the remaining teeth to fit properly. Crowded teeth also result in the build-up of plaque and tartar in the mouth.
We recommend Invisalign if you have excessive space between your teeth. Unwanted space between the teeth occurs because of the unusual jawbone growth. If not addressed, it may cause gum problems.
When your upper and lower jaw is not aligned, it leads to a crossbite. The problem causes chipping of your teeth and leads to several periodontal disorders, resulting in gum disease and loss of bone.
Under this condition, your lower teeth are thrust outward from your front teeth. It happens because of the abnormal growth of your upper jaw. Invisalign can treat underbite and align your jaw.
Overbite is the condition when your upper teeth overlap your lower teeth. One of the reasons for this problem is genetics. It may also happen because of the overgrowth of your bone and poor oral hygiene. If left untreated, it may cause chipped or fractured teeth.
What is the Procedure of Invisalign?
- We will assess your dental condition using a dental check-up and X-rays and create a customized treatment plan based on your bone structure and teeth.
- With the use of 3D technology imaging, we will monitor your teeth. These images will be sent to the dental lab for the creation of an impression resembling your dental structure.
- After the creation of the mold, we will call you to try them. We will check for the fitting of the mold and make necessary attachments. If the tray doesn’t fit you, we will send it to the lab for alterations.
- Once your Invisalign tray is ready, we will fit it into your mouth. Visit us so that we may monitor your treatment.
How to Care for Invisalign?
Wear your Invisalign 20-22 hours a day. Remove them while eating food and brushing your teeth. Do not consume alcohol or smoke cigarettes with aligners as it may lead to staining.
