Invisible Braces

Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are the latest technology in the field of orthodontics. It is ideal for people who want their teeth straightened but do not want visible wires on their teeth. This process can straighten crooked teeth without the use of metal or ceramic wires. However, they work just like the conventional ones. This procedure is painless and does not require anaesthesia.

How is it performed?

  • The orthodontist starts by taking a full X-ray of the patient’s teeth and jaw along with the impressions of the gums.
  • It takes approximately a month to make these invisible braces out of clear plastic or acrylic material.
  • On the second visit, the first set of these clear aligners are inserted into the mouth.
  • These braces are removable but must be worn throughout the day, except when eating, brushing or flossing.
  • The set should be worn for two or three weeks before it is replaced by the next set.
  • Invisible braces are effective for people facing situations like spacing in between teeth, crowding of teeth, overbite, underbite, deep bite and open bite conditions.
