Sure Smile (Clear Aligners)

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment procedure that includes a series of aligners made out of medical-grade plastic that helps in straightening the teeth. They are virtually invisible and keep applying pressure on the teeth to push them to the ideal positions.

Invisalign is a more advanced way of straightening teeth and provides a discreet alternative to metal braces. The aligners can be removed when you’re eating, cleaning and other oral hygiene tasks.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?

  • Since Invisalign is made from plastic, it is lighter than metal braces. You wouldn’t feel any discomfort when you put on the aligners or pain from pressure on your teeth or gums.
  • You can easily eat your favorite foods without worrying about getting stains on the aligners as they are removable. You can also brush and floss your teeth easily as well.
  • Invisalign is custom-fabricated according to the shape and size of your mouth. The dentist takes a 3D scan of your mouth to fabricate the aligners, which would fit impeccably and do their job perfectly.
  • Unlike metal braces, removable ones are simple to care for. Washing them, keeping them clean and avoiding chewing on them would keep them intact for most of their lifespan.
  • Invisalign is made from dental-grade plastic material that is safe for oral use. It doesn’t cause any harm to the soft tissues in the mouth, such as the gums or the nearby soft tissues.

How Does Invisalign work?

The dentist will take a thorough look at your mouth during the initial appointment to understand your oral condition better. We will check for cavities, gum disease, worn-out or broken teeth, etc., which will play a role in determining whether you are suitable for Invisalign. We will also check for spacing between your teeth to determine whether you require braces or not.

If you do, we will take a 3D scan of your mouth using a hand-held scanner to get a better view and use it as a reference for fabricating the aligners. The dentist may suggest you switch between different aligners during treatment depending on how many teeth you wish to get straightened.

How Long Does the Course of Invisalign Last?

The duration of Invisalign treatment depends entirely on how straight you want your teeth to be aligned and how many teeth you want to get treated. On average, patients usually require about 22 weeks for getting 2-3 teeth treated with Invisalign, but this may differ depending on various factors such as jawbone movement or the severity of your condition.
