Invisalign – Straighten Teeth Without Braces

What Is Invisalign? How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is an innovative dental treatment that can straighten your teeth without braces. It is a safe and effective straightening option. In the Invisalign treatment, a series of removable (nearly invisible) aligners are used to straighten your teeth. Aligners are custom-made according to your specific teeth measurements with the help of 3D technology.

The Invisalign treatment comprises of just 6 simple steps:

  • You will have a consultation with a dentist to check if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. The dentist will help you in understanding the various treatment options. You can get to know the estimated cost for your treatment.

  • Depending on your dentist’s treatment plan and dental records, a virtual 3D simulation will be generated. This will be helpful to show you the anticipated movement of your teeth from its current position to the desired final position.

  • Once the final treatment plan is approved by you and the dentist, the custom-made aligners will be fabricated to fit your teeth correctly. The number of aligners required will vary from person to person.

  • You will be guided by the dentist about how you need to use and remove the aligners. The dentist will place attachments on your teeth and/or create space between your teeth, if required.

  • On a fortnightly basis, you will switch to a new set of aligners. Gradually, your teeth will move towards the intended position. From start to finish of your treatment, the dentist will monitor and check if your treatment procedures are being executed as planned.

  • Once the treatment is completed, you can protect your teeth either with the help of a removable or fixed retainer.

What are the dental conditions that can be treated via Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is your ideal option for both single tooth movement and complex movements involving several teeth. The treatable conditions include:

  • Protruding teeth

What Is The Cost Of The Invisalign Treatment?

The average cost of the treatment would be $5,000. However, the cost might range from $2,000 for very simple cases to $8,000 for complicated cases since many sets of aligner trays will be required.
