What Invisalign Treats
This clear aligner technology is used to treat most orthodontic issues. While crooked, misaligned, and gapped teeth can have a serious impact on your overall self-confidence, not correcting these issues can also have a serious impact on your long-term oral and overall health.
Hiding your smile can cause severe emotional and social distress. However, the reasons you’re hiding your smile may also be causing severe physical stress on your teeth and surrounding jaw structure. Misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth can put pressure on your surrounding teeth, potentially damaging to your teeth. Furthermore, if these issues are causing problems with your bite, it can impair your ability to speak and chew, and overcrowding can lead to periodontal disease. Additionally, the pressure and stress on your oral tissues can cause chronic headaches, jaw pain, and neckaches.
Common conditions treated:
- Gapped teeth
- Deep bite
At Amazing Dental, Dr. Budhani is proud to offer the cutting-edge technology that will restore your smile, give you back your confidence, and support your long-term oral and overall health.

How Invisalign® Works
Once you and Dr. Budhani decide that Invisalign® is right for you, he will take an impression of your teeth and have aligners custom made for you. The SmartTrack® technology is specially engineered to gently and constantly move your teeth—it can even rotate your teeth. Your aligners will need to be worn roughly 22 hours a day 7 days a week to be effective, but when worn properly, they will move your teeth into the desired position quickly and comfortably.
Each set of aligners will be designed specifically to move certain teeth. Therefore, you may not feel even pressure on all of your teeth throughout the entire course of your treatment. Rather, you will likely feel pressure in varying spots with each aligner change.
What to Expect
Treatment generally lasts between 9 and 12 months depending on your specific case. Every two weeks, you will discard your aligners and use the next set provided to you by Dr. Budhani. Every 4-6 weeks, you will be asked to visit Dr. Budhani to ensure that your treatment is progressing in the manner that it should be.
To reduce the chance of tooth decay and gum disease, you should brush and floss your teeth between meals and clean your aligners daily.
If you’re looking for a discreet, quick alternative to traditional braces, you’ve found it.
