What is Invisalign?

Invisalign logoSeeing how people go through the tough procedures of having their teeth caged behind metal braces, Align Technologies in 1999 introduced the world to Invisalign. They incorporated Invisibility and alignment into one single orthodontic appliance that would allow dental professionals to give their patients the most comfortable way of having their teeth aligned. The nearly invisible plastic is designed to perfectly match your teeth. Because of the various benefits of Invisalign, it is now the world’s leading method for treating misaligned tooth problems.

How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?

At Excellence in Dentistry, we start the procedure by getting a 3D scan of your teeth. After this, we use the software to preview the final positioning of your teeth. This allows us to design a comprehensive Invisalign treatment plan by giving you a 3D model of how your teeth will look once the treatment is completed. We show you a glimpse of your beautiful future smile!

After the designing phase, we will send the design to the lab where the Invisalign aligners will be created. These aligners will be used over the course of one to two years. The timeframe for the treatment will be decided by our dental professionals. These aligners will be changed after every two weeks till the time your smile is beautiful and stunning. You will only need to visit us every six weeks so we can monitor the alignment changes and keep your progress updated.
