Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses state-of-the-art technology to treat misalignment issues and malocclusion. Some of its exclusive features, such as the fact that the aligners are transparent, removable, and more comfortable, as well as the treatment’s proven effectiveness, make Invisalign more convenient than traditional braces, which used to be the only treatment option available for a long time.

  • Invisalign aligners are made from a dental-grade plastic material that is transparent. This makes the aligners virtually invisible, and people who see your smile won’t have the faintest idea that you’re undergoing treatment to correct your misaligned teeth.
  • Invisalign aligners are also removable. They can be removed when you want to brush your teeth or when you are eating or drinking. You can also remove the aligners if you have a special occasion, such as a date or a presentation at the office.
  • Invisalign aligners are metal-free. The primary issue with braces is that they are composed of metal brackets and wires. This can be less than comfortable and put the patient at risk of getting mouth injuries. But Invisalign aligners are made from soft plastic, and the risk of getting injured is next to none.
  • Invisalign treatment is based on advanced technology. Using special software, the dentist can accurately track the changes in the alignment of your teeth and predict how they would move with a new set of aligners. The entire treatment period can be precisely mapped out beforehand.
  • Invisalign treatment doesn’t require you to visit the dentist frequently. A follow-up visit once every few weeks is sufficient for the dentist to make sure the treatment is on track and to give you a new set of aligners for the next two weeks.

Clear Invisalign aligners are a convenient alternative to braces. One of the primary benefits of these aligners is that they are practically invisible. They are made from transparent material and fit snugly over your teeth.

Another major benefit is that you can remove the aligners when eating and brushing your teeth. Invisalign aligners are less noticeable than traditional braces, making them ideal for working professionals. They work to straighten the teeth by gently moving them into position and do not cause pain or discomfort.

Your Invisalign treatment will start with the dentist visually examining your teeth and deciding whether or not you require orthodontic treatment. Your teeth will then be thoroughly cleaned, and any existing restorations will be attended to. X-rays and 3D scanning will be done to accurately map out the position of the teeth and determine how best they can be brought to the right position.

The data from the images and measurements of the teeth will be sent to a dental laboratory, where the customized aligners will be fabricated from SmartTrack material. They will be made with high precision and fit your teeth perfectly.

Invisalign aligners work by gently applying pressure on teeth that are out of place and moving them into perfect alignment. The aligners will have to be changed every two weeks when the dentist gives you a different set. The new aligners will be slightly different from the previous ones as they should accommodate the changes in the teeth alignment.

Invisalign aligners have to be worn for at least 22 hours a day to ensure the treatment is effective and completed on time. Based on the severity of the alignment issues, the treatment period varies between a few months to a couple of years.

Patients who choose Invisalign enjoy the benefits of traditional orthodontic treatment but without the discomfort and aesthetic limitations of metal appliances. To start your Invisalign treatment, call Dental Aesthetic in Sun City, AZ, at (623) 300-5432 and schedule an appointment with Dr. AL Ahmad.
