Invisalign and How It Is Performed   

What is Invisalign?  

Invisalign is a type of nearly invisible retainer that straightens teeth. They are an alternative to traditional metal braces. When you get this treatment, you will receive clear, detachable trays that snugly cover your teeth.    

A particular form of plastic that is BPA-free is used to make the transparent area of the trays. Yes, the material is nearly transparent, making it difficult to see if you’re wearing them. This is one of the reasons why many adults and teenagers prefer Invisalign over traditional braces.    

Procedures That Will Be Taken   

We’ll take thorough research and documentation once we can tell during your consultation if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. This will include the following:   

  • Electronic x-rays  
  • A digital dental scan was performed with an intraoral scanner.   
  • Pictures of your face and teeth   

Upon completion, these data are transmitted to Invisalign along with specific instructions on how your dentist will want your teeth to be realigned. Then, using cutting-edge 3D computer imaging technology, your dentist will design a comprehensive treatment strategy that considers both the current position of your teeth and their planned final positions.
