Invisalign – the Best Way to Straighten Your Teeth
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of a set of clear, plastic aligners that help push your gapped or crooked teeth into the perfect positions. The aligners use controlled force to push the teeth gradually into position over time. The procedure uses aligners made from USP Class VI medical grade polyurethane resins. This plastic material has passed all the regulatory requirements for them to be used in the mouth. This tells you that the plastic used in making the aligners is safe and non-irritable.

What Happens During the Invisalign Process?
The dentist creates a series of invisible aligners that are made to fit your teeth. You wear the aligners for two weeks, after which the aligners will have pushed your teeth to a given position. After two weeks, the teeth will have adapted to the new position and you will need a new set of aligners to push the teeth further. After two weeks, the dentist will give you a new set of aligners in the series to push your teeth more. This will go on until your teeth are in the desired position.
This procedure treats several dental problems that include:
- Teeth crowding
- Deep bite
- Teeth spacing
How often must you wear Invisalign aligners?
You need to use the aligners day and night for 22 hours a day. You are required to remove them only when cleaning or eating.
My visit was very timely and their attention to detail was satisfactory. I highly recommend the staff and doctors at TLC Dentistry and hope you will have the opportunity to be treated with their loving care.
