What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of aligners which are fixed over teeth to correct imperfections. Each set of teeth is replaced with the other every two weeks or more. The aligners do the job of moving teeth to right position. Over a period of a year or more the planned result is obtained. Teens can smile openly with more confidence than ever before.

Treatment with Invisalign

Treatment with Invisalign is available only with dentists who are registered with the company to offer the service. The treatment is specially performed after thorough examination of the dental health of the teen. Any cavities or other dental problems should be addressed before performing the treatment. The treatment plan is set up after analyzing the degree of the orthodontic problem. Images and impressions will be taken during the process. This helps our pediatric dentist in creating a 3D image and showing the expected results to patients. The first set of aligners are prepared in lab and fixed over the teeth. The teens have to visit our dental practice once in every 2 or 3 weeks to get the new set of aligners.
