What is Invisalign?
When it comes to aligning crooked teeth, there are several options that patients can opt for, but none are as inconspicuous and comfortable as Invisalign. The Invisalign aligners are a popular brand of invisible braces chosen by patients who wish to straighten their crooked teeth while maintaining a metal-free smile. As a removable orthodontic solution, Invisalign is also unobtrusive, making them very popular among teens and young people.
As is the case with braces, the ideal age for patients to use Invisalign is during the late childhood and early teenage years, because it is during this period of development that the bone tissue is most pliable. However, Invisalign is also effective for adults who are seeking to straighten their teeth and improve their self-esteem.The process of creating Invisalign tooth aligners is relatively quick and easy. An impression is made of the patient’s teeth along with a series of photos taken to get a better picture of the patient’s dental situation. Using these impressions, a 3D projection is created to demonstrate how the teeth can be moved incrementally to achieve the desired results. From these projections, a series of Invisalign aligners is created for each stage of the alignment process.
Invisalign can be used to correct the following types of mild dental problems:
- A Crowded Smile
When the patient’s jaw does not have enough room to fit all of the patient’s teeth comfortably.
- Widely Spaced Teeth
If there is excessive space between each tooth because of missing teeth or abnormal jaw growth.
Once traditional braces have been removed, some teeth may move in unexpected ways so as to require additional alignment.
When the upper teeth are set over the lower teeth.
When a misalignment of the upper and lower jaws causes some upper teeth to bite on the inside of lower teeth.
More complex dental problems may require the use of traditional braces.
