Technology has proven mankind time and time again with its never-ending secrets of changing the way we live. It has now even changed the way the field of Dentistry works. When traditional braces were proving to be troublesome, researchers worked together and introduced a new-age Orthodontic solution known as Invisalign.
Invisalign treats orthodontic discrepancies from misalignments to correcting malocclusions. Its removable and comfortable texture is what makes it stand aside from other orthodontic appliances.
The orthodontic appliance has paved excellent results for patients who are coping with dental dilemmas for years. They are proven to be the most sought-after aligners recommended by dentists because of their easy-to-use feature and much more.
Invisalign are clear aligners that are used to rectify the alignment of misaligned teeth. They are removable aligners made to fit exactly into the shape of the tooth. Aligners are customized and fabricated for patients in order to mend cases of misalignment and gap between the teeth. Aligners can be worn by teens as well as adults.
How does Invisalign work?
Prior to deciding how the aligner must look like, dentists will take a quick scan of the teeth which includes preparing 3D images of your teeth. A diagnostic procedure is generally done in order to draw out a treatment plan, recognize the exact movement of the teeth and to rule out an approximate period of treatment.
Invisalign aligners will be engineered using a computerized technology where the aligner is developed with the help of these 3D graphical images. Every edge of the aligner will be custom made to suit your needs.
Aligners are advised to be worn 20-22 hours in a day and have them changed once in two weeks. Aligners provide the patient with the liberty of removing them while eating and brushing help patients to maintain oral hygiene.
