What is Invisalign and how does it work?
It involves the placing of a series of almost invisible, removable aligners between teeth. The aligners gently shift your teeth each week, moving them in various directions – horizontally, vertically and in some cases even rotating them – depending on your needs. The aligners are typically changed every one-to-two weeks until your teeth are straightened, leaving you thrilled with the results.
The Invisalign aligners are engineered to each particular tooth, ensuring that each set of aligners are custom-made to each patient. The Invisalign aligners use the perfect amount of force on your teeth in precisely the right place needed, until your teeth have straightened to their ideal positioning. A skilled, qualified dental technician from Dentistry by Design will create a tailor-made treatment plan for you to follow, once a detailed consultation has been performed.
Invisalign vs braces?
Braces are metal brackets glued to each tooth and held together via wires, rubber bands are attached to the metal brackets at strategic points and are used to pull and move the teeth into a straightened position. Invisalign, as described above, does not make use of any metal brackets or wires and the aligners are all but invisible to the naked eye.
Invisalign treatments are a less invasive approach to teeth straightening then braces, and of course, avoids the unpleasant placement of metal in your mouth. There is no discomfort caused by wires protruding in your mouth, and any unsightly and embarrassing issues with trapped food. Each treatment option has its place though and making sure that the patient’s best interests are at heart is the goal of Dentistry by Design’s dentists.
Invisalign is not appropriate for every patient; therefore, a skilled, trained dental technician from Dentistry by Design will book a detailed consultation with you to assess your needs, risks, budget, and all the options available to you first.
