Invisalign is an orthodontic technique that uses transparent “trays” to move teeth. These trays are fitted to the entire arch with force points to move teeth into the desired position. Patients can actively remove the aligners to clean before or after eating.
Each aligner moves teeth about 0.25mm when patients have worn averagely for about 2 weeks.
Almost tools and equipment can be made on computers with the strong development of technology.
Invisalign technology uses the patient’s information (jaw samples, X-ray films and the photos of patient’s appearance) added on a computer. By specialized software, Invisalign specialists coordinate with orthodontists to plan the treatment for patients “from start to finish”.
Once computerized treatment plan is completed, Invisalign aligners are 3D printed. Many steps of aligner production are done by automated robots. Typically, patients need to bring about 20-40 Invisalign aligners to complete a treatment plan.
If you look for an orthodontics method without other’s recognition, Invisalign is the method you should think at first.
The usual treatment plan spends 20-40 Invisalign aligners; each is required to wear normally 2 weeks and 20-22 hours a day. Timing can vary depending on the daily wearing time. Invisalign aligners are made of transparent plastic; therefore, they are almost “invisible”.
Cost: Advanced technique comes with a high price, from 70 to 120 million depending on the difficulty level and the number of aligners used.
Notice: Aligners need to be daily cleaned, absolutely do not put in hot water. In addition, you need uphold excellent oral hygiene by using soft and interdental brushes.
