What is Invisalign
Invisalign (Clear ) aligners are removable, smooth and comfortable aligners that use the most advanced technology to help straighten your teeth. The aligners use a smart track material to straighten your teeth with 75% more predictability. Your smile is shaped more comfortably than with braces. The best part is your lifestyle is not interrupted and you can still enjoy the activities you love and the foods you enjoy, all with no unexpected trips to the doctor due to broken wires or brackets.
During your exam visit Dr. Kashyap will assess your malocclusion (crowding, gapped teeth, deep bite, open bite) and give you an assessment. We will complete a scan or impression and craft a complete digital treatment plan, mapping out your best smile yet from beginning to end.
You wear each set of aligner for 2 weeks removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you change aligners your teeth undergo minor programmed movements week by week. We will give you 3 aligners and see you every 6 weeks to make sure treatment is tracking well and as planned.
Throughout your treatment, you’ll see your smile transform, gradually. With the help of Invisalign clear aligners and Dr. Kashyap, you’ll discover how a series of small, expertly designed shifts can shape and move your teeth to the desired position to have a functionally and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Straight teeth are healthier teeth. When teeth are properly aligned, overall health benefits are clear.
Healthier gums: It’s easier to brush, floss around properly aligned teeth and you are less likely to have pockets between gums and teeth that trap bacteria.
Improved Hygiene - Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque retention, tooth decay and the risk of gum disease and improve general overall health.
Less wear and trauma - Aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking, and wear, which can require expensive procedures to repair. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbone and joints.
Dr Kashyap is an Invisalign Preferred Provider, which means she has gained a significant level of training and expertise to successfully treat a variety of cases utilizing the Invisalign clear aligner therapy treatment.
