How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?

At Cadena Dentistry, we offer Invisalign to our patients who desire a straighter smile without a mouth full of metal. Using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you, Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements our doctors plan out for you. But how do these plastic aligners give you a brand new smile? Allow us to explain.

The first part of the process is that of our doctors will take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth, and then use that information to create a treatment plan. Through the use of Invisalign’s patented thermoplastic design, Invisalign aligners move your teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The biggest difference is that the aligners not only control the force, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move.

If you would like to discuss the Invisalign orthodontic method, please give us a call. To learn more about the services we provide at our office visit, for more information. To schedule a consultation at Cadena Dentistry in Del Rio, TX, call 830-775-3322.
