Invisalign Treatment & Procedure
Here is all you need to know about Invisalign.
Common Dental Realignment Procedures and Treatments
For some time now, there have been many dental straightening procedures available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some have proven to be so valuable and effective that they are used all over the world.
Following are some of those procedures and treatments:
Braces have been around for centuries and work by aligning an individual’s teeth and bone structure. They consist of metal brackets, placed in the middle of each tooth, with wires going through them.
Over the course of treatment, the brackets are tightened. This tightening pulls the teeth in the direction that the dentist wants them to go. Because the brackets and the wires are all metal, the straightening process usually happens at a quicker pace.
Invisalign is the modern alternative to traditional braces. What makes Invisalign so attractive is that all of its components are made of clear, nearly invisible plastic.
Invisalign: A Dental Realignment Procedure that Works
One of Invisalign's advantages is its simplicity. You no longer need to endure a long and time-consuming process to achieve the smile you want.
As far as cosmetic dentistry is concerned, Invisalign is the ideal treatment due its versatility and near invisibility.

How Invisalign Works
To ensure a tight fit that leaves no room for movement, the first set of Invisalign aligners is applied by our dentist. Once applied, the appliance's tension starts to pull the teeth in the needed direction. The material from which they are made is completely clear and blends with the teeth's natural color.
Practical Benefits of Invisalign
There are many reasons for choosing Invisalign:
The aligners are practically invisible to the naked eye, except upon close examination. This is because the material used to make them is a strong, yet clear, plastic which makes it easy for them to seamlessly blend in with your teeth's natural color.
Invisalign aligners are as versatile as they are comfortable. Before eating or drinking, it is best to take them out as hot temperatures may affect their durability and strength. Once done, thoroughly rinse your mouth to ensure that there are no food particles stuck to your teeth, then pop in your aligners.
They fit snugly because they are custom-molded to fit you and no one else. This tight fit moves and aligns teeth more effectively because pressure is applied to a larger surface area. By moving all teeth as one, the end result is a more uniform alignment.
Invisalign aligners comfortably fit and adjust to your teeth, making them a better choice for those patients who intend to wear them on a long-term basis.
Invisalign is convenient for people with busy lifestyles. You can eat and drink what you want, play sports, go to the gym and just keep on living your life while your teeth and smile are getting better and better.
