Orthodontics and Invisalign


Orthodontics is an area which enables diagnosis, prevention and treatment of problems in the alignment of jaws and teeth. It basically means ‘straight teeth’. Orthodontic treatment involves the design and use of appliances. Eg: braces, plates or headgear to bring teeth and jaws into realignment. They apply a light pressure and helps move the teeth slowly through the jawbone. As technology has developed over the years, the appliances used are more comfortable and effective than ever before. The appliances have also become more aesthetic with the development ceramic brackets and Invisalign.”

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw. While metal braces brackets are still the most common, there are various other treatment options available.


The Invisalign system is a nearly invisible way to straighten teeth and improve your smile without braces.


1) What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the virtually invisible and hygienic alternative to braces that lets patients keep smiling during treatment. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth towards the desired position.

2) Does Invisalign work as well as normal braces?

Invisalign has proven to be as effective at straightening teeth as traditional braces. The level of Invisalign experience will determine how an Orthodontist or Dentist decides how to treat a patient. Patients with severe crowding or bite problems may require interdisciplinary treatments in which Invisalign is used in combination with other teeth straightening techniques.

3) What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is nearly invisible – you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing
Invisalign is removable – you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign is comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation: no metal or wires also mean you spend less time in the Dentists chair having adjustments.

Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start – so you can see how your straight teeth will look like when your treatment is complete.

4) How much does Invisalign cost?

As with all medical procedures, only your Orthodontist or Dentist can determine the cost based on your specific needs. Factors may include your Treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, the length of time for treatment and your health insurance coverage.
