The Invisalign aligner trays are made up of smooth, comfortable and plastic, which is virtually invisible, that is worn over the teeth. In Sugar Land, the dentist or the orthodontist plans out the exact movements of the aligners, specific to an individual depending on which the aligners gradually and gently help to shift the teeth into place.
Invisalign vs Braces
The basic function of both invisalign and the braces is the straightening of teeth for improving oral health as well as your smile. Treatment with braces comprise of metal brackets which are glued to the teeth and then tied together with wires and also rubber bands. Now-a-days, braces, matching the color of your enamel are also available.
On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are designed so as to be invisible. The treatment with Invisalign in Sugar Land consists of aligner trays which are made of smooth and comfortable BPA-free plastic which is worn over the teeth and helps in gently but subtly moving the teeth. Orthodontists configure the aligner trays according to precise 3-D images of the teeth which are created by using X-ray pictures.
The best part of using aligners is that no metal brackets need to be attached nor wires tightened, and you get a great smile without any interference in your daily activities. Added to this is the fact that hardly anyone is aware that you are getting your teeth straightened during the entire process. All that is needed is a new set of aligners to be popped into place every two weeks till the end of the treatment.
