Are you unhappy with your smile because of your teeth’s misalignment? Do you have bite-related issues - underbite, crossbite, or overbite? In past years, the only treatment option to correct these dental issues was traditional braces. However, the metal wires of traditional braces used to cause discomfort for the wearers. With Invisalign aligners that have become popular as an alternative to traditional braces, this is no longer the case. Invisalign aligners provide all the advantages of conventional braces while being convenient and comfortable for the wearer.

For determining the patient's candidacy for the procedure, the orthodontist starts by taking dental X-rays for diagnosing the oral cavity and the severity of the malocclusion. The impressions of the teeth are taken to use as the basis for the fabrication of the aligners.
