The correct position of teeth and jaws adds to your beauty. It is difficult to clean the teeth if they are not fit together or if they are crooked. Eventually, with time this leads to tooth decay and diseases. Orthodontic treatments correct the position of teeth and jaws. Invisalign is one form of orthodontic treatment, but how Invisalign works? And how effective is Invisalign?
Many people do not prefer visible braces, so avoid visiting the dentist. Invisalign is an invisible option available. Invisalign straightens the teeth without anyone noticing it. However, invisible orthodontics has replaced the wires and brackets in the braces with precise plastic aligner technology. These are removable and more comfortable as compared to braces.
Invisalign is a personal accessory
After diagnosis, if the dentist feels the need for Invisalign, he suggests it. During the treatment, the dentist custom-makes the Invisalign, and no one else can use it. These are personal accessories. After every few weeks, the dentist examines the position and then attaches a new Invisalign. Invisalign works by putting gentle pressure consistently on the teeth.
Invisalign pushes the teeth in their position. It fits tightly on teeth. As the situation improves, so does the aligner to adjust to a new location in the mouth. This process continues until teeth are back in their place. The computer takes the image of the mouth, and using it; the dentist custom makes the Invisalign.
How Invisalign works in the mouth?
The dentist, after diagnosis, starts the process by taking computer-generated images and impressions from the mouth. The dentist figures out the correct alignment of teeth; he develops and then fixes it in the mouth. Invisalign has a series of molds that gradually fix the teeth in their proper position.
