This patient has crooked teeth and a protruding front tooth.
Invisalign can straighten the teeth and improve this smile.
How does Invisalign work?
After examination by your dental practitioner, impressions are taken of your teeth.
Impression trays are filled with impression material and then placed over your teeth.
Once set, the impression trays are carefully removed.
Your impressions and dental records are sent to Invisalign.
The impressions are used to create a digital model of your teeth.
Based on your dental practitioner’s treatment plan, the Invisalign software plans the movement of your teeth, from their current position to their final desired position, allowing you to see how your teeth might look after the treatment.
Once your 3D treatment plan is approved, by you and your dental practitioner, a series of nearly invisible aligners are custom made for you.
The aligners follow the stages of the treatment plan.
You place the aligners over your teeth where they fit snugly.
As well as being nearly invisible they are also comfortable and can be removed for eating, drinking and cleaning.
Every two weeks you switch to the next set of aligners.
Each aligner moves your teeth stage by stage, little by little.
Resulting in a straight and healthy smile.
Invisalign – clear, removable, comfortable.
