Patients who are curious about alternative ways to realign their teeth without the use of traditional braces can learn about Invisalign. It is a treatment option for individuals who are not ready to cover their smiles with metal brackets and wires. Patients in the Las Vegas area often speak with Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental and ask, “How does Invisalign work?”
Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative that can be used for teenagers and adults who want to address misalignment of the dental arch. Invisalign works without brackets and wires. Instead, it uses plastic aligner trays that are worn over the teeth day and night for gradual improvement. Patients who are wearing their aligner trays do not feel embarrassed by the appearance of their smile because Invisalign is practically indistinguishable!
Obtaining Invisalign is easy. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth start with an evaluation by Dr. Christopher Lim. Once it has been determined that Invisalign would be beneficial, patients then have impressions completed. These impressions are digitized and sent to the Invisalign laboratory where a series of trays are made. The patient returns to the dental office and Dr. Christopher Lim and his team discuss the how to use Invisalign. Compliance is incredibly important in seeing results. Otherwise, additional time and cost may be required to see the desired results.
Many patients choose Invisalign because of the many advantages. Invisalign is:
Easy to care for
Simple to use
