New treatment is future of orthodontics:invisalign www.drgeorgebardawil.com beirut-lebanon

Anyone in need of dental correction who fears braces has an option: Invisalign.
Invisalign provides patients with a pain-free, invisible alternative to braces for roughly the same price. Invisalign works by using invisible aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are fabricated based on impressions taken of the patient's teeth and are changed every two weeks.
Dr.bardawil began taking classes for the system after it was introduced. He continues to keep himself educated about the latest in Invisalign technology. .(http://www.drgeorgebardawil.com/)
When a patient comes into Dr.bardawil requesting Invisalign,Dr. bardawil first takes impressions of his or her teeth. These impressions are sent to Invisalign, which creates a treatment plan. Dr.bardawil reviews the plan and sometimes modifies it based on the patient. Invisalign then fabricates the invisible aligners for the patient's treatment.
After getting these aligners, the patient wears them for two weeks and changes to the next one. Until the patient is acclimated to the aligners, he or she sees Dr.bardawil every two weeks. After patients have gotten used to the treatment, they can usually take three home and only check in every six weeks, a much easier process than bracket and wire braces.
Traditional braces are still required in the most extreme cases. In cases of skeletal deformity and instances that require surgery, braces may be the only option in an already tough-to-treat situation.
Invisalign Teen was introduced to offer the product to teens. These aligners have special colored dots on them to indicate wear.
Besides the wear-indicating dots, Invisalign Teen also allows for gaps where lost teeth have not erupted yet. Taking into account that teens often lose items, the Invisalign Teen program offers extra aligners not originally factored into the program at no extra charge.
Dr.bardawil said he believes Invisalign is the future of orthodontics. Dr.bardawil is seeing more patients requesting the Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign's major draw for patients is not purely cosmetic. Invisalign aligners make brushing teeth easier. People no longer have to carefully brush around pesky brackets. Diets are not as restrictive with Invisalign, either. Patients with braces, who had to be careful of hard or sticky foods that would ruin their braces, are free to eat whatever they wish with Invisalign.
