How do I use Invisalign day to day?
The best part of Invisalign is that nobody else needs to know you are straightening your teeth. You wear Invisalign 22 hours a day, including while you sleep. Invisalign treatments can be completed in as little as 20 weeks for many patients.
When you have Invisalign in Abu Dhabi, you take off your aligners to eat and clean your teeth. Because you are removing your braces, you can continue to eat what you want, with only a few exceptions. If you are a heavy coffee drinker or smoker, you will notice Invisalign aligners yellow over time along with your teeth, making the invisible plastic less conspicuous. To avoid this, practice good normal dental care and limit your coffee and cigarette consumption whenever possible.
A visit to BELLA MEDICAL CENTRE should be planned every 4-6 weeks to review your progress and allow for modifications if necessary. At the end of your treatment, your fasteners will come off and your friends and family will only notice that your teeth somehow seem healthier and that you seem more confident as a result.
One advantage to Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners for cleaning. Remember to floss and brush daily to avoid cavities and to keep your smile as white as it is straight.
13 reasons why you should choose Invisalign
Is there a difference between a General Dentist and an Orthodontic Specialist for my Invisalign Treatment?
Many general dentists are ‘moonlighting’ in the field of orthodontics by offering Invisalign treatment. In terms of education, one becomes a general dentist after 5 years of education in a dental school. After passing, if he/she desires to become an orthodontist, then he/she needs to go for an additional 3 years of specialized education.
Since, general dentists don’t have this specialized education, their scope of work doesn’t involve moving teeth or bone.
Should You Choose a General Dentist or Specialist Orthodontist?
Having a general dentist perform orthodontic work is a bit like a general physician performing plastic surgery . It can be done but would you want to risk it ? think about it : if you had a heart condition , would you be treated by a primary care doctor or a cardiologist? Obviously ,a cardiologist would have a good deal more specialization where the heart is concerned. The same approach applies to teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Invisalign is a brand of clear dental aligners that snugly fit over your teeth. They gently and gradually align your teeth. It is used to treat a range of dental misalignment and other issues.
People often think that it is a ‘special kind’ of braces. Well, the only similarity is that both braces and Invisalign are used to treat dental misalignment. However, the similarity ends there. Braces use wire and brackets to pull the teeth together. On the other hand, the aligners gently exert force on the tooth from multiple directions to align them.
Invisalign has a number of advantages over traditional metal braces. Some of its biggest advantages are:
- Since it is made up of a clear material, it is hardly noticeable by people around. They would not even know that you have them.
- The treatment is more effective.
- It is more convenient.
These particular clear aligners are made up of a special material called SmartTrack. It is a clear, transparent material that is both highly effective and completely safe. The material is approved by the US FDA. It is BPA free and contains no latex or gluten. So, there is no cause for any kind of discomfort whatsoever.
