What is Invisalign? 


Invisalign is a type of dental aligner that is clear, removable, and invisible. Invisalign aligners are used to rectify abnormalities artistically and comfortably using a meticulous, predictable, and technologically advanced treatment process. 

Invisalign uses clear aligners that are specially designed to have a transparent appearance. These aligners can apply controlled pressure on your teeth, forcing them to shift to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.


Invisalign Procedure


Let's see how the Invisalign procedure is carried out in detail:


As the first step, your dentist will examine your teeth and discuss whether or not Invisalign is right for you. Once you decide on the Invisalign treatment, the dental practitioner will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab.


The lab will create a 3D image of your teeth along with your custom treatment plan. A set of aligners will be designed specifically to move your teeth from their current position, to your desired smile. 


The clear plastic aligners are made up of BPA - free plastic. When you wear the Invisalign, it will not cause any irritations to your cheeks. And you will need to wear this every day, for at least 22 hours a day, for the best results.


After dental examinations, your doctor will give you new aligners as per your progress to improve the straightening process. It will be decided based on your treatment plan. During each stage of the treatment, you can notice the changes in your teeth.The entire process usually lasts about a year and at the end, you are left with the straight smile you’ve always wanted!
