Have you ever been conscious about your smile because of crooked teeth but are worried to get braces? Usually, people don’t want to get metal braces on their teeth because they standout and don’t look very good. A way to bypass all of that, is an innovative teeth straightening procedure with invisible aligners, which is known as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a technique to straighten the teeth without visible braces. It involves trays without any metal or wires which irritate teeth and gums. Invisalign is not noticeable in your mouth but is as effective as traditional metal braces. The trays are also easily removable for brushing or eating.
After Dr. Singh confirms that you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign she takes scans of your teeth. After the images are taken these are sent to the Invisalign laboratory as models to make your personalized trays. When your trays are ready, the dentist will call you to collect them. Your dentist will fit the trays by small invisible attachments that are painless to attach. After fitting the tray, your next visit will be after a few weeks in which your progress is checked, and if needed, the tray is changed. The duration of the whole Invisalign process depends on the severity of misalignment.
The length of the procedure to get the desired straightening results depends on the severity of misalignment and compliance of the patient. It usually takes 10 to 24 months but for those requiring only a small degree of straightening, desired results can be achieved only in a few months.
Invisalign are preferable over the traditional metal braces because of the following reasons:
