How Does Invisalign Work?
Before starting treatment, your Dr. Singh will take impressions of your teeth and create a 3D model of your mouth. Using this model, she will create a custom treatment plan that outlines the exact movements your teeth will make during treatment.
This plan is used to create a series of aligners that are specifically tailored to your needs. Once you receive your first set of aligners, you will need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Every two weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners that will continue the process of gradually shifting your teeth. Dr. Singh will monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
Benefits of Invisalign
1. Clear Appearance
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible.
This means that you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you are wearing braces.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable.
This makes it easier to eat, drink, brush, and floss without any restrictions.
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic material that is much more comfortable than metal braces.
There are no wires or brackets to irritate your mouth, and the aligners can be easily removed if they cause any discomfort.
Invisalign is an effective treatment option for a variety of orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, gaps between teeth, and bite problems.
It can also be used in combination with other orthodontic treatments to achieve the desired results.
Drawbacks of Invisalign
While Invisalign is a great option for many people, it may not be the best choice for everyone. Here are some potential drawbacks to consider:
Invisalign can be more expensive than traditional metal braces, depending on the complexity of the case and the length of treatment.
Invisalign requires a high level of discipline and commitment to the treatment plan. You must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day and switch to a new set every two weeks.
3. Not Suitable for Everyone
Invisalign may not be suitable for people with severe orthodontic problems, such as major bite issues or significant tooth rotation.
