Consult an experienced orthodontist to find out whether you are a candidate for Invisalign. This is usually decided after the doctor studies the structure of your teeth, jaws and face with the help of X-rays, photographs and bite impressions. If he finds that Invisalign is the right treatment option for your smile, it would be prescribed. Invisalign braces are custom-designed using advanced computer imaging technology according to your teeth structure. The orthodontist can even show you on the computer how your teeth will look like after the treatment. Invisalign aligners work by applying a mild pressure to move your teeth to straighter positions. One set of aligners has to be worn for two weeks and then replaced with a fresh set so as to speed up the straightening process. This is to be repeated until your teeth are perfectly aligned. The treatment can be completed within 9-15 months and the patient has to wear about 18-30 sets of aligners.Invisalign braces are easily detachable and therefore patients can maintain good oral hygiene. They can consume food and drink comfortably, as well as brush and floss normally.
