Invisalign - Your Clear Alternative to Braces

The technologically advanced way of correcting various orthodontic malalignment, Invisalign Treatment, is an advanced innovation in the field of dentistry that gives you a bright and beautiful smile during as well as after the treatment.
Invisalign is a clear alternative to metal braces for kids, teens and adults. Now you don’t have to shy away from smiling while in the process of getting a balanced and even smile.

Dr. Tapasya Kapoor, the Orthodontist at Dr Poonam Batra Multispeciality Dental Clinic is a Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider for the year 2019. We are among the top 1% Invisalign Provider in the world.

Invisalign involves wearing a series of clear and removable aligners that gradually and effectively straighten teeth in a flexible way. While these Invisalign aligners are on, you won’t even feel that you’re wearing them and they don’t get into the way of a beautiful smile.

These are more comfortable and less noticeable as compared to the traditional metal braces. No brackets and wires and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.

Procedure to get Invisalign

During the first consultation with Dr. Tapasya Kapoor, the 3 D digital scan image of your teeth will be taken with the iTero digital scanner. Based on this scan, Dr. Kapoor then creates an individualised and customised treatment plan for you. This plan will be used to produce the set of Invisalign aligners, which will be specifically made for you. During this procedure, you can also see how your teeth will look after the treatment.

A series of customised aligners are then given to you, each of which is worn for anything between 7-14 days. The treatment generally takes 9-18 months and you may require to visit your dentist or orthodontist every 8-10 weeks.


If your teeth look crooked or protruded and you want to align them perfectly, then Invisalign is the solution for you. Invisalign can be used to treat almost all types of malalignments just like braces.

Teens are usually more self-conscious about their smile and prefer an invisible option over the metal “train track” braces. Invisalign is a great option for teens as they don’t have to frequent the Orthodontist every 3-4 weeks like with braces or even for extra emergency appointments. A compliance indicator that gradually changes its color from blue to pale blue with aligner wear helps doctor and patient keep track of aligner wear.

Wearing Invisalign can make you feel some pressure or minor discomfort in the first few days as it uses a controlled force to move the teeth. However, the discomfort goes away in a few days and it is much less as compared to the traditional braces.
Also, aligners won’t give you sores in your mouth and irritate your cheeks like braces do.

You don’t need to change your diet when wearing Invisalign as you can easily remove these aligners during your mealtime.

Invisalign can be cleaned just as you clean your mouth; simply brush them with a toothbrush. Invisalign are generally cleaner than the traditional braces and the food particles are less likely to get lodged into them.

Treatment duration can vary from 8-18 months with an average length of treatment being around 12 months. However, the treatment duration generally depends upon the individual case.
