Dentist in Las Vegas answers, 'How does Invisalign work?'Posted By Dr. Christopher Lim
Invisalign explainedInvisalign 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!
The processObtaining 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.
