Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. The course of treatment involves changing aligners to moving your teeth into straighter position step by step until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. Benefits: Invisible thus no unwarranted attention to your mouth, removable thus easy to eat, brush and floss, no brackets to catch food or plaque, healthier gums from properly aligned teeth that help gums to "fit" tighter around each tooth, easier cleanings in maintaining a good oral hygiene program that reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay and periodontal disease. Procedure: Invisalign then uses advanced stereolithography (SLA) technology to build precise molds of your teeth at each stage of your treatment, individualized, custom-created clear aligners are made from these models and sent to your doctor's office. Visits are made to your orthodontist for adjustments and to check progress on a monthly basis. At regular intervals, a new set of custom-molded clear aligners are received to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your doctor for your course of treatment.
