Not having perfectly aligned teeth can be a problem for anyone because it counts when it comes to first impressions and it quite noticeable. Though there are different options for rectifying this condition, Invisalign is the perfect treatment for you if you are suffering from misaligned, uneven teeth. Metal braces and retainers have been popular for addressing this issues in the past, however have not been the best. Thanks to Invisalign, you can expect a much better solution for this problem and get the perfect smile you have been hoping to achieve.
What to Expect
Invisalign functions similar to the way a brace does, but it is invisible which makes it hard for anyone to know that you are wearing them unless you tell them yourself. This allows for you to set your teeth right discreetly.
The treatment is done by specialists. They will take an impression of your teeth and decide what aligners should be applied where, to get the desired results using the latest computer technology. The specialty in this procedure is that every one of these aligners is created on a subjective basis based on your own individual requirements.
If you feel that this could be the solution you have been looking for, you can visit the American Medical and Dental Centre here in Dubai. During the first visit to our clinic, a specialist will examine your situation and decide whether you are in fact suitable for this procedure. If you are, they will take a mould of your teeth and generate a computer image of them. Once that stage is complete, the specialists will determine where each individual aligner should be placed. Typically, these aligners have to be changed at different stages. Once your teeth reach the position the specialists determined at the beginning, the treatment will stop.
What is important about Invisalign, besides the fact that it lets you correctly align your teeth without anyone noticing, is that during this treatment you get personalised, special care from your doctor. Every person's teeth positions are different. Based on this, the amount of work that needs to be done for your teeth to achieve their correct positioning is also different. Therefore, our doctors understand the importance of individual treatment and make sure to attend to you according to your situation.
Although different places may offer you Invisalign treatment, you can only find the best at the American Medical and Dental Centre. With our experienced and certified inv specilosts, we will make sure to give you the smile you have been dreaming about.

Invisalign is very similar to metal braces, except it is a modern version used with new technology. The set of aligners move teeth to the targeted placement, through force applied by the unit.
