Did you know that around 45% of adults are unhappy with their smiles? Most of us have considered teeth straightening by a professional.
At least some of us backed out when it came to metal brackets and wires that had to be fixed to our teeth. So here is the revolutionized solution. Presenting Invisalign aligners.
Invisalign is an esthetic new-age orthodontic treatment modality. In simple words, these are a series of personalized removable transparent plastic trays that facilitate teeth movement when worn systematically. They are made with the help of cutting-edge CAD-CAM technology. Invisalign clear braces quickly gained popularity over traditional metal braces as many teenagers and adults became more concerned about their appearances during the treatment window.
Your Invisalign certified orthodontist will first do an initial assessment and diagnosis. Pretreatment records like radiographs, photographs, and models of your teeth and jaws will then be made. An intraoral scanner is used to make measurements of your teeth which are then sent to the Invisalign office. A stimulated virtual treatment is then formulated with the help of highly sophisticated software. Modifications are made at this stage. After the desired results are obtained on screen, the trays are cut out precisely using CAD-CAM technology in the lab.
Once the trays are ready, the doctor will give you the usage instructions. Detailed explanations about when you should consider switching between the trays will also be given. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled.
The use of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing has allowed customized orthodontic treatments with the help of plastic trays that are virtually unnoticeable and significantly more comfortable to wear. Invisalign is currently the most used system among the aligners. You can have your smile transformed in as less than 6 months. What are you waiting for?
