Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of nearly invisible plastic aligners to place slight pressure on your teeth and gums. Over time, this pressure encourages proper alignment, restoring your smile to a healthy, aesthetically pleasing condition.
Traditional braces use metal wires, brackets, and rubber bands. Invisalign aligners feature an FDA-approved thermoplastic called SmartTrack. SmartTrack is free of BPA, BPS, latex, and gluten, making it safe for people with allergies or sensitivities.
Invisalign can be used to address a variety of orthodontic problems including:
- Crooked teeth
- Open bite
Invisalign treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovation. unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible. there are no wires and brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss. and, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods.
Invisalign treatment process
Invisalign treatment begins with a comprehensive oral exam and review of your oral health history. It begins with intraoral, extraoral photos and impressions of your arches. A custom treatment plan is then maped out by a step-by-step process for transforming your smile.
After approving your treatment plan the laboratory manufactures your first set of Invisalign aligners. During treatment, You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position as prescribed by Dr Gill.
You’ll visit Dr Gill about once every 4- 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Advantages of Invisalign treatment
