Invisalign aligners are being used in Winnipeg as a great alternative to traditional braces. They are used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as close gaps and adjust the bite. The entire Invisalign treatment involves wearing clear, plastic trays that are custom-designed for your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces. To obtain optimal results, the dentist would recommend that you wear the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day, throughout your entire treatment. It is then recommended switching to a brand new set of aligners roughly every 2 weeks until you’ve reached the desired results.
It is important to know that both braces and Invisalign were designed to straighten teeth while improving your smile and oral health. Customers first began the implementation of Invisalign in 2000.
For many cases, traditional braces are still highly recommended to achieve a successful result. All options should be provided to patients, so they can make an informed decision as to which treatment method they would like to select. There are also ceramic brackets as well as inside braces which provide more esthetic options.
Invisalign, meanwhile, is designed to be nearly invisible. Aligner trays made of comfortable, BPA-free and smooth, transparent plastics. These are worn over your teeth to subtly and gently move your teeth. Your dentist will use radiographs, pictures, and impressions to create a precise 3-D image of your teeth and to configure your aligner trays accordingly.
Treatment begins with taking X-rays, photographs, a bite registration, and polyvinyl siloxane impressions of the person’s teeth and gums. We now have the option to take impressions without impression material. We can use a digital scanner to capture the patients teeth and tissues in just minutes, with no runny impression material. The dentist would then complete a written evaluation that includes both the diagnosis and treatment plan. If dental impressions are used, they are scanned to create a digital 3D representation of the teeth. The dentist, along with technicians help move the teeth to the desired location with the program Treat, which creates the stages between the current and desired teeth positions.
Invisalign is a technology manufactured by Align Technology, a multinational medical-device company headquartered in San Jose, California. Do you know that the corporation was founded in 1997 by Zia Chishti? Chishti conceived of the core design of Invisalign while an adult orthodontics patient. During his treatment with a retainer intended to finish his treatment, he posited that a series of such devices could affect a great final placement in some small movements. He partnered with Kelsey Wirth to seek developers.
