Ready to straighten your smile? Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces.

Diamond Dental, which is located in Newtown, CT, offers orthodontic treatment with Invisalign to their patients. Dr. Ratna Vedullapalli is one of the finest dentists in Newtown, CT. Read on to find out Invisalign works to straighten your smile. 

What are the aligners made of?

Invisalign aligners are made of a patented, nearly invisible thermoplastic material created exclusively for the Invisalign treatment plan. Invisalign aligners are approved by the FDA. Your Invisalign aligners will be custom-made for your teeth.

How does Invisalign work? 

You will wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks. Invisalign aligners straighten teeth through the placement of controlled force on the teeth. Your teeth will gradually move over time. You will only remove your aligners to eat, drink, floss, and brush. The average patient wears between 18 and 36 sets of aligners of aligners during their treatment. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners nearly invisible, so hardly any one can tell you are straightening your smile. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, there are no metal or wires which may cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want. Flossing and brushing are no problem, so you can maintain your dental hygiene as usual.

How long does treatment take?

The average length of your treatment depends on the severity of your condition and can only be determined by your Invisalign-trained dentist. The average Invisalign treatment time is 9 to 18 months. Before you begin treatment, you will know exactly how long your treatment will take and what your teeth are expected to look like at the end.
