How do Invisalign attachments work?

Invisalign is a type of tool which keeps filling material bonded to your teeth to help the Invisalign aligner make moves and take place, the attachment basically places in the middle of the tooth to let the aligner move effectively and efficiently.

5 things to know all about Invisalign attachments-

 

 Small in size- Invisalign attachments are little in size. It is an aligner tool for a tooth that is tooth-colored dots that is made of composite filling material which bonded teeth so the aligner can move easily.

 

 Work as an anchor- The attachments are placed in the middle of the tooth for serving as an anchor to make an aligner work more efficiently. 

 

Invisalign attachments are annoying-  Some case studies of patients we learned that attachments are irritating in their mouth when their aligners are out, some people started to dislike the food which builds up around the attachments during meals.

 

Simple process- Your tooth surface area is prepped for bonding, your dentist will mark the area with an Invisalign template to channel where the attachments are going to fill then it will cure the bonding so the tiny bump hardens and stays in place. That’s it now you no longer need the attachments, You can go to your dental office and ask your dentist to buff off your tooth. 

 

Invisalign attachments are not for all - Many dentists first determine you need attachments or not in some cases it is required because of movement But in some, it doesn’t. If your plan is to straighten your teeth the Invisalign aligners can do all the alignment work on their own it will not require attachments anymore.
