Invisalign Innovations and Remarkable Results
In the past few years Invisalign aligners, an alternative to metal dental braces, have become an important treatment option in modern dentistry. The clear aligners molded by Invisalign certified dentists have the cosmetic advantage to the unsightly brackets and wires of traditional braces, and have smooth comfortable plastic that is less likely to irritate cheeks and gums. With significant improvements to the Invisalign system within the past few years, even more orthodonticmovements can be made, and that leads to powerful results in simple to moderately difficult cases.
In the case seen here, many dentists would have reverted to the traditional brace-wire approach. However, these results were achieved through Invisalign and elastics alone. Recent Invisalign advancements were designed to provide greater control for specific tooth movements, and new tools like prescribed power ridges and inconspicuous rubber-band support apply external forces to aid shifting teeth. The consequence is more powerful and predictable results for Invisalign patients.
Invisalign’s unique system permits the removal of aligners before meals and to brush and floss, making daily oral hygiene easier, and simultaneously reducing the risk of bacterial infection, plaque buildup and tooth decay. But as the “clear alternative to braces” continues to evolve into a powerful, supervised orthodontic system, Invisalign has proven itself capable of fixing smiles even as difficult as the one displayed here. With the Aligntech Institute committed improvements, Invisalign allows cosmetic dental offices remarkable results in moderately difficult cases.
Changing dental procedures and products face the same challenge of straightening teeth, but the Invisalign system offers the advantage of clear unobtrusive aligners, and remarkable results.
