Understanding Invisalign Attachments 

What Are Invisalign Attachments? 

Invisalign attachments are the small, tooth-colored bumps on our aligners made of dental-grade composite material. They are custom-designed to fit the unique shape and contours of your teeth. These attachments are integral to the Invisalign treatment process and serve several key functions. 

What Are Their Functions? 

  1. Enhanced Grip: Invisalign aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Attachments provide a more secure grip for the aligners, ensuring they stay in place. 
  2. Precise Tooth Movements: Attachments act as handles for the aligners, allowing them to exert controlled pressure on specific teeth. This precision is essential for achieving the desired tooth movements. 
  3. Rotation and Tilt Control: Attachments help control and correct the rotation or tilt of teeth, facilitating their alignment within your smile. 
  4. Complex Alignments: For cases requiring more significant adjustments, attachments enable the aligners to tackle complex issues like overcrowding and gaps. 
  5. Targeted Movements: Invisalign attachments are strategically placed to target specific teeth, ensuring they move precisely as planned during your treatment. 
  6. Predictable Results: Thanks to attachments, your orthodontist can envision and control tooth movements more accurately, leading to more predictable treatment outcomes.
