Invisalign is not an Alternative to Metal Braces - It's the Next Generation
Invisalign aligners are one of the latest advances in modern dentistry. At Cornwall Dental, we start the process with an initial consultation to check if Invisalign is the appropriate treatment for you. An impression and some photographs are taken, then uploaded onto the system, specifically based on your treatment plan. Our final consultation will be based on the 3D system called "CLIN CHECK", and the whole plan will be viewed on our computer to decide whether to proceed with the fabrication of the aligner or to further tweak and modify. Once this is done we usually receive the complete set of aligners in two weeks to start the process.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created specifically for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You will achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The only noticeable part about wearing Invisalign is the end result of beautiful straightened teeth.
