Aligners have forayed into the Indian market some while back and are slowly gaining popularity with adult patients who want the flexibility to be able to remove their braces/ aligners if they need to. Ideally even aligners should be delivered by a specialized Orthodontist trained in them as he / she can guide you whether you can expect a full correction with the stability of results with aligners or you should opt for the traditional Labial or the invisible Lingual braces. If the case selection is good aligners especially Invisalign works wonderfully for the patient.
Your Orthodontist is a specially trained INVISALIGN specialist. Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
