Dental implants are at the cutting edge of modern dental technology. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or secure full dentures. The titanium implant is placed in the bone, and allowed to heal under the gums. After adequate healing time , the implant is restored to work as either a new tooth or an attachment for a denture. Dental implants are a conservative approach to replacing missing teeth, and are easy to maintain.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements planned out for you.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
