The Invisalign orthodontist and the teeth alignment method
The Invisalign orthodontist is a specialist doctor with a high level of training in the method of dental alignment, called Invisalign. Invisalign, also known as invisible membranes, is an easy method to straighten your teeth. Treatment of orthodontic problems with the Invisalign method is relatively painless and aesthetically very discreet. In particular, almost the entire procedure is performed digitally, using a virtual treatment program. This way, you will avoid glued-on braces coming off, or having any sharp wires causing possible emergencies. In recent years, the Invisalign method is increasingly becoming the method of choice. Millions of people have transformed their smile using this method. It is essential that your doctor has the appropriate certified knowledge in order for him to secure a smooth treatment process. The specialized Invisalign orthodontist will help you get the smile of your dreams! You can contact us by phone or book an appointment at our orthodontic practice, to find out more information.
How does the Invisalign orthodontist work?
The Invisalign orthodontist works digitally using computer-based software. He designs the sequence and extent of dental movements. He also designs the necessary attachments (“resin buttons”). Attachment design is extremely important to enable the digitally programmed dental movements. As a result, the work that needs to be done in the oral cavity is minimal and only involves the adjustment of the attachments. The main advantage of this method is that it is applied very easily. Instead of visiting the doctor’s office every month to make the necessary adjustments in the oral cavity, you just change the membrane yourself, every 5-7 days. So, in this way your treatment can proceed, without the need for repeated visits. The Invisalign orthodontist periodically monitors the correct and smooth progress of the treatment. The impressive fact about this method is that there is also the possibility for remote digital control. The Invisalign orthodontist monitors your progress through photographs sent by the patient.
Instructions from the Invisalign orthodontist
If you decide to go forward with the treatment, you will be given a set of necessary instructions by the Invisalign orthodontist. First, he will guide you through how to wear and look after the braces. What you need to know is that you need to wear Invisalign for 22 hours a day. They are removed only before eating and brushing your teeth and oral cavity. Your Invisalign orthodontist will then show you how you can change the membranes yourself, when necessary. It is important to emphasize that proper oral hygiene is absolutely essential. In fact, the process is easy, unlike traditional braces, since you can brush your teeth easily, simply by removing the invisible membranes!

The Invisalign orthodontist, therefore, can see how many hours you have been wearing the braces. To achieve the desired result, you need to be careful and show complience, by closely following the instructions given to you. You can learn more about the Invisalign method in the video below.
