Invisalign treatment is revolutionizing the way teeth alignment is carried out. They’re fast replacing conventional dental braces owing to the ease and comfort they offer.
Invisaligns, also known as clear aligners, are clear braces custom made to fit your teeth perfectly. These are created through digital 3D scanning and printing technology. Aims Dentistry is proud to be one of the select few currently using this technique to correct misaligned teeth. They’re currently used to treat a variety of misalignments such as crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, crooked teeth, and gap teeth among others.
What’s the need for teeth alignment treatment?
Perfect teeth alignment boosts confidence while preventing various gum diseases, tooth decay, and TMJ disorders. It also helps prevent ulceration of oral mucosa due to crossbite or overbite.
