A Live Life Smiling Patient
Dr Vaughan has undergone specific training and is a qualified Invisalign professional.
Invisalign uses clear removable aligners, similar to bleaching trays or retainers. To manufacture Invisalign the orthodontist takes a 3 dimensional digital image of the teeth in the mouth which is then sent to the Invisalign factory in Costa Rica. After Dr Vaughan writes up his prescription for the ideal tooth positions via the internet, technicians in Costa Rica work their magic on their computers to make 3 dimentional modles of the teeth. The computer then determines how many aligners are required from these models and the length of treatment. When the patient is ready to proceed with treatment the Invisalign aligners are manufactured by computers and supplied to the orthodontist.
Invisalign requires the patient to wear the aligners close to 24 hours of every day. The aligners are removed to eat, clean the teeth and for certain occasions such as playing sport, swimming and other rare occasions. If they are not worn 24 hours of each day they may not be successful. As an adult you may be looking to improve your smile for business or social reasons, Invisalign can do this in an almost invisible way.
Invisalign will not position the teeth as well as braces. This is acknowledged by the representatives of Invisalign, however in their words "it produces a vast improvement".
