Invisalign is the clear alternative to traditional metal braces. It makes use of virtually invisible and removable teeth aligners tailored for you to straighten your teeth, without the pain and inconvenience of wires and brackets.
While there are many other options to correcting crooked and misaligned teeth, no other treatment offers the same level of comfort and convenience as Invisalign. It can treat a wide range of conditions such as crowding, gaps, crossbite, underbite, overbite and buck teeth.

Invisalign is a type of aligner system which helps to correct your smile without being visible. When you look at these aligners you might wonder how something that looks so similar to your bleaching tray could actually move your teeth but these trays are made up of a special type of thermoplastic resin that exerts transient force on your teeth to align them. It’s a pretty simple procedure wherein your orthodontist will take some special impressions, X rays and photographs and send them across to the Invisalign technicians along with the proposed treatment plan.
Here these impressions are scanned and a 3 dimensional model of your teeth and occlusion are created. Then based on the treatment plan sent across by your dentist, the technician digitally moves around these teeth to bring them to their desired position. This gradual movement from start to finish is made into an animated film called a CLIN CHECK video. This is where you as a patient get involved in your treatment plan as your dentist will call you in to show you this video, and you can either choose to accept the plan or make changes to it.
Once we approve this treatment plan Invisalign then starts manufacturing the aligners using CAD/ CAM technology. We receive your aligners in a couple of days and that’s when your treatment starts. You will need to wear each aligner for 2 weeks and then shift to the next one till the desired result has been achieved.
