What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile without the use of braces and brackets. The method uses clear, customized aligners giving a natural feel and look and an attractive smile.

The treatment is ideal for patients with mild to moderate teeth misalignment and can help align the bite. Hence effective for patients with an overbite, crossbite, or under-bite.

The treatment uses clear plastic aligner trays, enhancing the teeth and straightening gradually. The aligners are removable, allowing you to maintain your dental health through regular brushing and flossing.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your consultation, Dr. Gandhi evaluates your smile and dental health to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Then she examines your smile and creates a personalized treatment plan using digital impressions. Next, she inputs the accurate and high-quality digital images into the Invisalign software, developing a clear plan to straighten your smile.

The skilled dentist then sends the plan to the lab to form the unique aligners. The aligners work in such a way that every two weeks, you receive a new set of aligners that slowly straightens your teeth. Each set of the aligners focuses on treating the specific areas enhancing teeth alignment in the targeted time.

During the treatment, your provider requires you to make an appointment every six weeks to check the progress of the treatment and ensure you achieve the most stunning results.
