What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern and transparent orthodontic device used to align teeth. It is a virtually invisible device that assists in straightening your teeth. It is made of plastic and performs the same function as dental braces. We make Invisalign using 3D imaging technology, which uses a mold taken of your teeth.

Benefits of Invisalign
Braces are comfortable to remove and clean. You can continue consuming the same food or drinks as before without worrying about staining or damaging it. They make brushing or flossing simpler compared to traditional braces. You can buy a standard cleaning kit to clean them or use warm water.
Invisalign braces don’t need the old fashioned metal or wires for support, unlike standard dental braces. It means that your visits to the dentist reduce a lot when you need to make readjustments. You need to consult your dentist once every 8-10 weeks approximately to replace them and evaluate your treatment progress.
Stylish and Comfortable
The style quotient with Invisalign braces is undeniable. They are not as evident and unattractive as regular braces. They improve the quality and shine of your smile. They are light-weight and custom-built for your teeth. They are incredibly comfortable and rarely cause discomfort while eating or cleaning.
How does it work?
Invisalign works by moving your teeth in small increments over the duration of the treatment until they are all aligned. You wear your aligner for around 22-hours a day and replace your set for a new one every two weeks. The number of replacements depends upon the projection made by the computer to achieve the final result. Each time you replace your aligners, your teeth move closer to your desired alignment and smile. Visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is on track. The entire process takes approximately 9 to 15 months.
Traditional Braces VS Invisalign?
Traditional braces are made of metal, while Invisalign is a transparent device made of clear plastic. Invisalign can be easily removed before food, whereas regular braces are not removable. Invisalign is more comfortable to wear, easier to clean and maintain. Invisalign is an expensive option compared to traditional braces.
