Invisalign is one of the most advanced solutions for dental realignment that has restored the self-confidence of numerous patients already, young and adult as well. The method straightens the teeth without unsightly and uncomfortable wires, offering a solution customized with the state-of-the-art scanning and manufacturing technologies.
Most dental misalignment issues can be efficiently corrected with the help of Invisalign, but very severe spacing problems or extreme crookedness might benefit more from conventional braces, so the process of creating your Invisalign aligners starts with detailed impressions and photos to determine how long treatment will be needed. The next step is a consultation to see a simulation of how the teeth will move during the treatment.
The set of clear, almost invisible aligners are custom-created based on the images, then the first aligner is applied on the patient’s teeth. Each aligner stays on the teeth for about two weeks – when the current aligner has done its job, it is replaced with the next one in the set until the desired results are achieved. The first results are usually seen after a few weeks, but it might take about a year or longer to complete the realignment process.
