Invisalign is a system that gradually straightens teeth through the use of aligners. Each aligner is tailored to the patient’s needs and fits comfortably. Impressions for Invisalign are also comfortable and accurate. A 3-D scan is used to achieve tooth imagery in a matter of minutes! The imaging is then used to build the aligners and to show the patient exactly the outcome they can expect.
The images will also be used to produce the aligners, which will be shipped directly to the patient’s home. The number of aligners required can vary according to the seriousness of the problem, but the majority of people complete the procedure within a year.
Patients should expect to wear their Invisalign aligners constantly. It is advised that you remove them only while brushing your teeth or feeding. When your teeth begin to align, your dentist may change the number of hours you should wear your aligner each day, but with the shortest and better outcomes, you should wear it for the recommended time.
