Invisalign™ aligners can address simple and complex dental problems such as malocclusions (bad bite), crooked or protruding teeth, or uneven spacing between teeth. Your dentist will create a bespoke treatment plan for you, depending on your dental needs.
Our team of medical professionals will take an oral impression. The mould is used to craft custom-fit sets of aligners and determine the condition of your teeth and the required course of action. With the help of 3D technology, your dentist will map out the various stages of alignment. Every few weeks, we will provide you with the new set of aligners for the next stage.
In the Invisalign™ treatment, the aligners exert pressure in a controlled manner to gradually move the tooth to the required position. Each new set of aligners is altered slightly to account for the shift in position at each stage.
An Invisalign™ treatment offers the following advantages:
