Invisalign is the most advanced orthodontic teeth aligner made from clear plastic. Since it is made from transparent dental-grade plastic, it is difficult to notice and stays in disguise during the course of the treatment period. It is removable and can be taken off whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth.
Dr. Gary Lau, DDS, has treated numerous patients with orthodontic issues. He provides comprehensive solutions to all types of malocclusion issues and makes sure his patients get the smile that they’ve always wanted.
Braces have been the go-to dental solution when patients complain of crooked teeth. However, they would leave a displeasing appearance on one’s smile during the course of the treatment. Also, their metallic nature would raise doubts in the patients’ minds regarding their oral safety.
Invisalign gets rid of these limitations of traditional braces as it is made from clear plastic. When the patient wears them, they are barely visible unless taken a closer look at. They are fabricated with such high precision that they gently apply pressure on the teeth in a controlled way and bring them to their right positions. Moreover, Invisalign doesn’t contain any sharp corners or metal parts that could cause harm to the soft inner tissues of your mouth. Also, unlike braces, Invisalign can be removed whenever the need arises, such as while eating food or brushing the teeth.
During the initial screening, Dr. Lau would check for signs of decay, bone deterioration, gum health and the severity of malocclusion. Also, 3D scans and x-rays of the teeth will be taken to map out the positions of the teeth and determine how they should be moved. Based on the data obtained, he would draw out a suitable treatment plan that is customized just for you.
The aligners will be fabricated in a dental laboratory with high precision using dental grade clear plastic. The number of aligners will depend on how long your treatment period stretches for. The aligners will have to be worn for 22 hours, every day of the week. Each aligner will have to be worn for a period of 2 weeks before being replaced by a new set of aligners. When you visit our office for a follow-up consultation, we would check using the software whether or not your teeth are moving in the right direction. This helps us track their movement with high accuracy. The treatment period may last anywhere between a few months to a couple of years.
Invisalign is by far the most advanced orthodontic treatment solution available today. Its transparent nature keeps it hidden while you’re getting your teeth aligned. This allows you to get the smile that you’ve always dreamt of having.
Investing in your appearance is always going to be a worthy one. Especially, if you’re spending money on improving your smile which directly influences your facial appearance, it is definitely worth it. Invisalign is one such investment that would boost your confidence levels and help you flaunt your smile every single day.
Determining the approximate cost of your custom aligners would depend on several factors, such as severity of malocclusion, how you want your new smile to look, duration of the treatment period, type of malocclusion you’re dealing with and how extensive the cosmetic corrections should be, and in certain cases, additional treatment procedures that your dentist may recommend.
