You may straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces with Invisalign Treatment. You can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, brush, and floss as usual. Removable braces are less apparent than those that can't be removed and replaced.


Metal braces are the sole option for most people who want to improve their smile. No metal brackets or wires will be seen with Invisalign allows people who have put off orthodontic treatment for years to receive the treatment they need finally.


Invisalign Construction


Invisalign clear aligners are BPA-free, unlike metal braces. With clear aligners, teeth can be straightened to obtain a beautiful, straight smile. Invisalign treatment can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted.


Wearing, Is It Safe or Not?


Both adults and teenagers can use Invisalign. Clear braces, such as Onyx, can address overcrowding and under crowding. A dental exam and digital x-rays will determine if Invisalign is correct for you.


Are You Curious To Know How Invisalign Works?


After a thorough examination, x-rays, and a 3D model of your teeth, we will determine if Invisalign is correct for you. The treatment plan determines how far your teeth have to travel and for how long. The Invisalign lab receives your x-rays, 3D model, and photos of your teeth. Over time, Invisalign's 3D model of your teeth will alter.




First, we inspect and change your aligners. Remove them before eating or brushing your teeth. Detachable Invisalign braces can be removed during the day for comfort.



Invisalign is simple to assemble. Then remove your aligners and wear them as directed. Each set of aligners must be worn for two weeks before switching. Their exact movement will cause initial discomfort. Your teeth will start shifting in a few days. After a while, your aligners will feel loose. Keep them even if they begin to feel loose. So no need to get rid of them. Adjustment is required for your teeth and gums. It's risky to switch aligners too early in the process.


Every six weeks, we'll check your aligners and track your progress. These tests help us decide whether to change your treatment plan or aligners. The length of Invisalign treatment depends on the patient's age and needs. After a comprehensive inspection of your teeth and digital pictures, a treatment time estimate will be offered.


How Long Do Invisalign Treatment Last?


You should wear a retainer after any orthodontic treatment, whether with Invisalign or traditional braces. Retainers keep your teeth in their correct positions. If you don't have it, your teeth will gradually move backward. If your teeth shift, you may need to wear aligners once more. Based on your specific requirements, we'll develop a retainer plan that's right for you.
