Want to achieve a beautiful smile without metal braces? Invisalign treatment is becoming one of the most popular treatments to transform your smile. Invisalign has transformed the process of achieving your perfect smile through the use of clear aligners allowing you more freedom than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is a revolutionary technology that requires X-rays and 3D models of teeth for creating custom aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, the clear Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed to ensure good dental hygiene.
The Invisalign aligners are made from a special, medical-grade thermoplastic material. The specific type of thermoplastic used in Invisalign aligners is called SmartTrack, which is a patented material, specifically designed for Invisalign treatment.
The total length of the treatment is all dependent on each patient and their dental issues. In some minor cases, it can take as little as 3 months to achieve the desired results, however, it typically takes between 12 and 18 months to complete.

Invisalign treatment is a great option for many patients who have mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Here are some factors that may make someone a good candidate for Invisalign:
Crowded teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, overbite, underbite and crossbites: Invisalign can effectively straighten and align teeth that are crowded or crooked, close small gaps between teeth, and correct moderate overbites, underbites, or crossbites.
Good oral health: A good candidate for Invisalign should have good oral health, including healthy teeth and gums.
Good compliance: Invisalign requires a certain level of patient compliance, as the aligners must be worn for at least 20-22 hours per day to be effective. A good candidate for Invisalign should be willing and able to comply with the treatment plan.
No major dental work needed: Invisalign aligners may not be suitable for patients who require major dental work, such as extractions or restorative procedures.
It is important to note that each patient’s case is unique. At your initial consultation, the patient’s individual needs and orthodontic problems will be assessed to determine if Invisalign is a good option.
It’s clear why so many people are turning to Invisalign to get their perfect smile.
