How Invisalign works?
In the past the main drawback of conventional braces used to correct, straighten, rotate, and align crooked teeth is that you could see them. Fortunately, Invisalign produces the same results - and YOU don't look unattractive during the process. The question now is HOW?
The Invisalign process begins with a series of snap-on, custom fit, removable mouth trays, or aligners. These Invisalign aligners apply a controlled amount of pressure to your teeth, forcing them to shift. The process continues with a computer-generated image of what your teeth will look like at each stage of treatment from beginning to end. Each stage corresponds to the movement built into a set of aligners.
Additionally, each aligner is designed to pressure specific teeth to move into place. Like brackets and arch wires, Invisalign Aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The key difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are able to move and these movements will be determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. Accordingly, it results in an efficient force delivery system.
Ultimately, every fortnight you will switch to a new Invisalign tray. The clear plastic composition of the Invisalign trays is what makes it invisible when they are on your teeth.
