Modern dentistry now offers advanced tray or aligner systems for teeth straightening that are more convenient, comfortable, and efficient. Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that comprises a series of clear plastic trays made using 3D digital models of your teeth. The main advantage of Invisalign aligners is that they are made from medical-grade plastic and hence have no wires or metal parts. This allows them to move the teeth into their desired positions gently, putting consistent but minimal pressure on the teeth. This translates into more comfort for the patient and, in many cases, shorter treatment times.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Dr. Chung will start by assessing your candidacy for Invisalign by evaluating your misalignment issues and examining your oral cavity. Once your candidacy is confirmed, digital scans and special software are used to fabricate your customized trays. You will receive a set of aligners and will have to change them every two weeks as the treatment progresses.
Throughout the treatment period, you should wear the aligners for 22 hours each day. You can remove them when you eat or brush your teeth or for special occasions. Dr. Chung will monitor your progress when you come in for regular checkups and recommend the next steps. Once the treatment is completed, you will have to wear retainers for a recommended period in order to maintain the results.
