WHAT ARE ALIGNERS OR INVISIBLE BRACES?

Aligners have revolutionized the way the teeth are aligned and made the journey to a beautiful smile extremely comfortable as well in control of the patient.

Aligners are fabricated using highly flexible and comfortable polyurethane materials to fit precisely onto the teeth. These are tailored and customized to your teeth and smile. Aligner technology is much more advanced than regular braces treatment.

ALIGNER TREATMENT

This orthodontic treatment does not require wires, brackets, and rubber bands. Modern dentistry has come a far way and offers dental solutions that are not only highly effective but also aesthetic. Wearing clear aligners can save you the trouble and pain of having metallic or ceramic braces.

Clear braces are transparent trays that hold the teeth and help in shifting and straightening the teeth in a proper position and shape. Clear braces are highly effective as metallic or ceramic braces, minus the pain and effort. It is only higher on the cost factor and thus not much in demand.

The clear aligners can be worn and removed anytime unlike the normal braces.

HOW DOES AN ALIGNER WORK?

The custom-made clear aligners are created to move teeth very snuggly and slowly towards the desired alignment. The entire process is digitally mapped along with the future projections of the final result.

The aligners do not create any speech problem, as well as do not interfere with your normal eating and drinking as they can be easily removed.

HOW TO PROCURE A CLEAR ALIGNER?

Clear aligners are made fitting to a specific size by the use of the latest 3D printing and CAD/CAM technology. The process for gaining the correct size for the aligners is –

● Your dentist or orthodontist has to check if your teeth can be treated with aligners.

● The patient’s teeth are scanned by an intra-oral scanner for taking exact teeth impressions. Intra-oral scanners take exact impressions of the teeth and create a 3D model.

● The 3D model is then used with CAD design software to create a case-specific treatment plan, depending on the current alignment of the teeth. A series of steps that shows enhancement in the teeth alignment is worked, which the orthodontist considers as a treatment map towards achieving the desired result.

● The 3D printed model is then vacuum formed with PETG or PU transparent sheet to manufacture the aligners.

● The orthodontist then bonds attachments that are nodules on the teeth that are made of composite resin. This process is done to snuggly tighten the aligners over the teeth.

● The different aligners marking the treatment map are provided to the patient and need to be changed every 10-15 days depending on the progress.

● A patient will on average require 25-40 sets of aligners all through the treatment to achieve the desired result.
