Invisalign: A Discreet and Convenient Way to Straighten Your Teeth
Invisalign is a popular clear aligner treatment that can help you achieve a straighter smile without the use of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made of a thin, transparent material that fits snugly over your teeth. They are virtually invisible, so you can smile confidently throughout your treatment.
Benefits of Invisalign treatment
- Discretion: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of a soft, comfortable material that won’t irritate your gums or cheeks.
- Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want, and brush and floss your teeth easily.
- Effectiveness: Invisalign has been clinically proven to be effective in straightening teeth.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign is a good option for people of all ages who want to straighten their teeth. Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of dental problems, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Spaced teeth
- Open bites
- Gap teeth
How does Invisalign treatment work?
Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with an orthodontist. Your orthodontist will assess your dental needs and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, your orthodontist will create a digital treatment plan. This plan will show you how your teeth will move over the course of treatment.
Once your treatment plan is complete, your orthodontist will order a custom set of Invisalign aligners. You will wear a new set of aligners every week or two for approximately 20 to 22 hours per day. Your teeth will gradually move into the desired position over the course of treatment.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The length of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the severity of your dental problems. Typically, Invisalign treatment takes 6 to 18 months to complete.

Besides the traditional metal braces, our teeth straightening or orthodontic specialty offers many options.
We specialize in orthodontic treatments with ceramic brackets that blend with your natural tooth color. The braces are less noticeable and don’t give you a “metallic smile”.
We also offer newer types of braces that are placed behind the teeth (on the inside surface) called lingual orthodontics. These modern braces are out of view and esthetically pleasing even during the course of the treatment.
In the above mentioned treatments, the patient needs to come for regular check-ups every month. For some patients including students staying in residential schools and colleges or patients coming from far-off places, who find frequent visits inconvenient, we offer the latest advanced technology in teeth alignment called self-ligating braces.
By adopting this method, the patient has the convenience for visiting our specialist of just once in three to four month intervals, as the braces adapts itself to aligning, and it does not require frequent monitoring & adjustments as compared to that of monthly check ups of the former braces.
