Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment:
What is INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is an Orthodontic appliance that corrects malocclusions with a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, removable Aligners. A new hi-tech animation Clincheck) helps in patients to visualize the course and result of treatment.
- Aligners – A series of clear Plastic retainers designed to sequentially move the teeth from where they are to where they should be.
- Clincheck – Is a computer animation of the patient’s actual teeth. This clip shows the movement of teeth along the treatment to finish. The patient and doctor can make any changes required that can be incorporated by the laboratory.
This method of treatment has shown consistent and quality treatment outcomes in teens and adults.
How do the teeth move?
- Continuous pressure – Fixed Appliances or braces – ideal and full control by Orthodontist.
- Intermittent pressure – Active Retainers – Less ideal, dependant on patient co-operation.
- Invisalign – Less control than braces, but more than a retainer.
