What is Invisalign Braces?
No one likes having crooked teeth. We all should be confident about our smile and not be ashamed of it. Luckily, there are ways to restore the health and look of your teeth minus the ugliness of traditional braces. The Invisalign braces are custom-made for men and women. They are virtually invisible and fit perfectly on your teeth. They work their magic by shifting your teeth slightly, moving them in both directions; horizontal and vertical. They might even rotate your teeth if it is what it takes to have a perfect smile. Your invisible aligners use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When the dentist changes them every few weeks, your teeth gradually move into the position resulting in a perfect smile.

How do these Invisible Aligners help to straighten your teeth?
While getting Invisalign treatment the specialist orthodontist will supply you a special set of thermoplastic aligners mapped in advance for your teeth which will adjust the current tooth position gradually over time when worn 20 to 22 hours a day (except while eating, brushing, flossing, etc.,). Approximately after 15 days you will have to use the next set of aligners till your teeth becomes perfectly straight. Invisalign controls the force and timing enabling only certain teeth to move periodically as mapped out in advance by the Certified Invisalign provider. You will have scheduled appointments with the specialist every 30 to 45 days during the complete course of your Invisalign treatment.
What is the duration of my Invisalign treatment?
The duration of the treatment depends upon your current teeth position. It takes around 12 months to complete the Invisalign treatment process and get perfectly straight teeth. After treatment completion your dental specialist may suggest using a Vivera retainer to prevent the teeth from shifting their positions.
