One of the transformative treatments we offer is Invisalign – an ideal solution if you’re looking to straighten your teeth without the conspicuous appearance of traditional braces. Invisalign treatment provides a clear alternative to metal braces for kids, teens, and adults.
Teeth Issues that Invisalign Can Fix
Invisalign is a highly versatile orthodontic solution that can correct various dental issues. These include:
- Overcrowding: When there isn’t enough space for all your teeth to fit usually, causing them to bunch up, overlap, and twist.
- Gaps: Excessive space between teeth due to abnormal growth of the jaw or missing teeth.
- Overbite: When the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth, often caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth.
- Underbite: The opposite of an overbite; the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
- Crossbite: When the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned, causing one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth.
The Invisalign Procedure
The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation, during which a detailed 3D scan of your teeth is taken. This scan is used to develop a precise treatment plan that includes the exact movements of your teeth. Custom-made, clear aligners are then fabricated, which you will wear 20-22 hours a day, changing to a new set every one to two weeks. Over time, these aligners will gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign brings a multitude of benefits:
- Almost invisible: As the name suggests, Invisalign aligners are clear and hardly noticeable.
- Removable: The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
- Comfortable: Without metal brackets or wires, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces.
- Predictable: The treatment is planned, so you’ll know what to expect and when.
- Effective: Invisalign can effectively treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions.
