Invisalign is a clear transparent aligner used to straighten your teeth. It is a computer program that generates a series of aligners with small changes. The aligners are made of smooth, thin plastic. They are removable and can be removed when needed to eat, brush and floss. During treatment, Dr. Seth will monitor you closely in her office on a regular basis to make sure your smile is progressing as planned.
This causes the teeth to move with removable aligners. It is recommended for mild to moderate spacing or crowding. As you switch the sets of aligners every few weeks, the teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. Indications for Invisalign are:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite
For most patients, it is a much better option than to wear metal train brackets and wires stuck to your teeth for several years before we see results. Dr. Ishita Seth is a certified Invisalign provider at Apollo Dental in Ballantyne and can help straighten your smile. We encourage you to contact our office at 704-230-0502 to learn more.
