Clear Aligners Are The Future Of Teeth Straightening
Clear or invisible aligners are fast-growing alternatives to conventional metal braces for children and adults. They are convenient, comfortable, and aesthetic.
Invisalign®, a brand from the United States, has gained tremendous popularity in the past decade. The system consists of a series of digitally printed aligner trays that are worn for short, successive periods to shift misaligned teeth into the ideal position.
At our clinic, we also offer other affordable clear aligners from different brands for simpler alignment issues.
Advantage Over Braces
Our orthodontists recommend clear aligners, such as the Invisalign® digital series, because:
The trays are more effective than braces and can be easily removed for eating and brushing.
Being transparent, the aligners allow working people and teenagers to feel less self-conscious.
The trays are made of smooth, BPA-free thermoplastic material and lie flat against the teeth, increasing comfort.
The teeth straightening process can be completed in less than a year.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Digital impressions of your teeth are sent to the lab where the aligners will be created.
Using three-dimensional modeling software, a custom-made, progressive series of aligners is sent for you.
We check the fit of the aligners and provide care instructions.
We use a special software to map out the entire “shift path” of your teeth to track the progress over subsequent visits.
Each aligner is worn for about 1-2 weeks before being exchanged for the next one in the series.
A customized retainer tray is worn for at least a year thereafter to reinforce the new spatial positions of the teeth and avoid a relapse.
The cutting-edge smart technology incorporated in the Invisalign® system allows for more discreet, comfortable, predictable, and fast teeth alignment than braces. Call for a free consultation with our Invisalign®-certified orthodontist to see if you are a good candidate for clear aligners.
