With an advanced 3D imaging and CAD/CAM, Invisalign is a revolutionary in teeth-straightening system. From the initial sitting to discus on your needs and the desired position of your teeth, the system designs a precise treatment plan exclusively for you. Additionally, the fully digital backed by computer aided system is able to create custom-made aligners that are based on your teeth’s exact measurements. The set of aligners is designed to be worn for at least two weeks, before it is replaced with a new set in the series. Gradually the invisible aligners will be working to move your teeth to their desired position using minute forces every day.

Why are they made of plastic?

Of the many features that ensure Invisalign is in demand among the patients, the custom-made aligner is the most popular one. The aligners are made of plastic and offer aesthetic option to wearing metal braces. They also allow the appearance-conscious patients to sit through the treatment without attracting unwanted attention to their mouth, mostly due to unnoticeable nature of the wearable tool.

The fact that aligners are removable means that you can eat your favorite foods and drink beverages that you enjoy. This is not the case with metal breaches which require you to avoid foods that may get stuck on the crevices or even worse compromise on its physical structure. With Invisalign cleaning your teeth is less of a task – removing the aligners and brushing and flossing as you normally would ensure that your oral hygiene is maintained. However, it’s recommended that you keep the aligners on for at least 22 hours a day to achieve optimum straightening effect.

Are all dentists equipped to provide treatment with Invisalign?

The answer to the question is ‘no’. Dentists are required to undergo various instructional sessions in order to be recognized as certified Invisalign providers. There are also some dentists who further part in continuing education courses to become a ‘preferred provider’. The certification for Invisalign providers are based on different categories: platinum, platinum elite and diamond. Each dentist gets accredited based on the number of access the particular dentist has completed and the experience and performance of the dentist.
