How Invisalign braces work

The basic concept behind the Invisalign treatment is to exert a constant force on the teeth. When pressure is exerted on the teeth, bone remodelling process begins at the molecular level that helps in movement of the teeth. After the movement is complete, dental retainers are advised to maintain the teeth in their new position as they have the tendency to move back. 

Experiencing mild discomfort and tightness in the initial few days of treatment or when you switch plates is normal and expected. 

Maintaining proper oral hygiene during treatment is essential, and we at World Smiles Dental Center Mumbai have our team readily available to guide you better at each step.
