Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to gradually shift teeth into place, and is the easiest way to obtain orthodontic movement. This method is much less painful than traditional metal braces, and almost invisible, so even business professionals can receive treatment and no one need know. Dr. Salehezadeh is certain that Invisalign effectively corrects overcrowding, spaces between teeth and more, because she has been an Invisalign patient herself.
Dr. Salehezadeh: Invisalign consists of consecutive trays, or
aligners, that you wear, that help shift your teeth. You
start from a position where you don't like your teeth, and if you
want to have them aligned, you wear these clear trays on your teeth
for a period of two weeks, until you get to the next
stage, where you wear the next set of aligners.
Within a prescribed period of time, your teeth get to move
from point A to point B. It is definitely the easiest way
to have orthodontic movement of your teeth. What's really
nice about invisalign is that if the patient is motivated and
compliant, and really has the final goal in mind, they can get
to the final result in a much less painful way than
traditional orthodontics, and let's face it, who really
wants to walk around wearing brackets and metal wires on their teeth. With
this, you can barely tell that someone has any sort
of treatment going on, and it's perfect for a young
professional, who is going in and out of meetings and busy
conquering the world, because they can do the work with them on, or they
have the option of taking them off anytime when needed.
These are not your average braces, but these are braces in
the sense that they take you from a smile that you may not
like, whether it's spacing between your teeth or
crowding or teeth that are in the wrong places. Invisalign can get you to
this kind of a smile. You may not know this by looking at
me, but I am an invisalign patient.
