Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. It works towards the same results but with a different systems and several advantages. Instead of Brackets and Wires adjusted for the proper aligning of the teeth, Invisalign is a set of custom-made trays which are simply inserted onto the teeth. Every two weeks a new set of trays, or aligners are worn until the prescribed treatment period is completed and the desired results achieved.
Many patients prefer using Invisalign for several reasons. First off, Invisalign solves most patients’, especially adults’ concern over the aesthetic factor of most orthodontic appliances. These custom made trays are made of clear plastic which makes them virtually invisible. Other people will hardly notice a patient is in treatment until it is completed. They are also comfortable and convenient to use. Aligners are merely inserted onto the teeth and worn for most of the day. They are removed when eating and brushing allowing patients to enjoy food unrestricted process is simple, relying mostly on a patient’s diligence in wearing them and sticking to the plan. (This includes wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours per day throughout the treatment period,having tooth colored attachments bonded to some teeth in order to aid with tooth movement. Changing into graduating into sets of trays and periodic checkups with the orthodontics) and promises great results.
To get started on an Invisalign treatment, individuals must consult with an Invisalign provider. Dr. Simister is a Las Vegas Invisalign orthodontist and can duplicate a patients’ teeth to come up with a custom treatment plan. The plan is then submitted to Align Technology where a 3D representation of the patients treatment is created and the series of aligners are made. When it is done, the set is sent back to Dr. Simister where a patients can pick it up and be advised on how it is best used. Each new aligner/ retainer in the set should be used according to the doctor’s prescription to ensure effectiveness of the treatment.
