Invisalign is an orthodontic oral treatment that is referred to patients who prefer to align their teeth in the desired position. It is made of clear, smooth plastic that is nearly invisible on the teeth. At Enhanced Smiles, the dentists suggest Invisalign treatment for patients who are conscious of their appearance.
Advantages of Invisalign

- Bit conditions like overbite and underbite can be resolved through Invisalign treatment.
- It can be cleaned at home by following the instructions provided by the dentist.
- The patient can consume any type of food by removing the aligner.
- Invisalign does not cause any damages to the other parts of the mouth.
What is the Procedure for Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign is personalized to fit each patient's unique dental measurements. The dentists evaluate the patients' dental condition with the help of digital imaging systems. 3D images of the mouth are made to analyze the movement of the teeth during the treatment.
A series of Invisalign aligners are fabricated in a laboratory adhering to the patient's unique measurements. The dentist places the Invisalign on the teeth, which applies pressure to push it to the desired position gradually. As per the changes, the dentists replace the Invisalign until the results have been attained.
The patients should make sure that they wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day to obtain better results in the stipulated time. Regular dental visits are mandatory to observe the changes. According to each patient's dental condition, the time required for complete results may vary.
Caring for your Invisalign
The dentist advises the patient to follow good dental care to maintain the Invisalign. They should brush their teeth before wearing them. A soft-bristled brush is provided to the patient to clean the aligner. It should be placed in the cleansing solution when not in use. The patient should rinse them in water before placing them back on the teeth. Invisalign should be removed while eating food. It may discolor and get damaged if used while eating.
