Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontic options in dentistry today, and the reasons are clear – literally. This high-tech teeth-straightening system revolutionized orthodontics when it was introduced. It was different in every way. The concept of an invisible orthodontic device was nothing short of brilliant, and a way of straightening teeth without braces was unheard of. Over a decade later, Invisalign continues to lead the way in orthodontic technology, and Big Smile Dental is proud to be at the forefront of the latest and greatest new developments.
Invisalign has grown up over the years. With continually advancing technology, the treatment has become more effective and more reliable than ever. Precision cuts specialized attachments enable these aligner trays to correct bite problems, such as underbite, overbite, and crossbite.
One of the greatest features if the Invisalign system is the ClinCheck software system. Your dentist will create a three-dimensional image of your teeth, just the way they are right now. The computer calculates with amazing precision exactly what Invisalign can do for you, and how many trays it will take to get there. You can see a three-dimensional image, on the computer screen, of how your teeth will look after treatment. If you don't like the outcome, you don't have to start treatment!
Most people request Invisalign because the trays are invisible, so when you smile, people see teeth – not braces. However, that is only one of many benefits. Invisalign aligners are gentle, with no wires to break, and no sharp edges. They are also removable, so you can clean your teeth as normal. This means you won't be spending half of your day trying to get food particles out of your braces. It also means you are much less likely to develop decay or gum disease, because your teeth are cleaner.
With Invisalign aligners, there is nothing to adjust, so there are no adjustment appointments. We will provide you with a series of trays. About every two weeks, you throw away your aligner and start using another one. You only need to come in about every six weeks so your dentist can monitor your progress.
