What are Knoxville Invisalign Orthodontics Aligners Made Of?
Technology has allowed dentists to improve patient smiles dramatically with a number of cosmetic restorations and treatments. One of the most popular treatments offered by Dr. Foncea is Invisalign orthodontics. Patients come to Sequoyah Dental Arts for Knoxville orthodontics that is done by a qualified and experienced cosmetic dentist. Invisalign orthodontics is one of the most requested treatments that are offered by the cosmetic dental practice of Knoxville. Orthodontics is often seen as metal brackets and wires. However, thanks to technological advances, patients can now use clear aligner trays to realign their teeth and their bites into a more attractive alignment.
The key to Invisalign orthodontics is the clear aligner trays. These aligner trays are made to be worn every day and night to move teeth slowly into new positions. This makes them a better alternative to traditional orthodontics because they use nearly “invisible” trays instead of unsightly metal apparatuses to reposition teeth. These aligner trays are strong, sturdy, and nearly undetectable by others. They are made with a high quality, medical grade plastic. It is easy to remove and replace, clean, and care for over the course of treatment. Each aligner tray is worn for two weeks, and then is replaced with the next aligner tray in the series. This is the general progression of treatment. The number of trays in a treatment series will vary depending on the severity of the misalignment, patient compliance, and the way the teeth respond to the treatment as it occurs. Patients who are viable candidates for treatment will be able to discuss with their dentist the approximate treatment plan and the expected time of treatment completion.
