Invisalign treatment is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth instead of traditional braces. Many people have heard of Invisalign, but not everyone knows what it is or how it works. In this blog, we will provide a better understanding of Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic material that is custom-fitted to the patient’s teeth. They are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without the appearance of traditional metal braces. The aligners are removable, which means you can take them out to eat, brush and floss your teeth.
The first step in Invisalign treatment is a consultation with an orthodontist. They will evaluate your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. If Invisalign is the right choice, the orthodontist will take a 3D digital scan of your teeth to create a custom treatment plan. This scan will show how your teeth will move during treatment and what your smile will look like after treatment.
Once your treatment plan is created, your orthodontist will create a series of custom aligners for you to wear. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks to help for the recovery of the patient and to make the healing process fast.
