Misalignment issues with the teeth in your smile can hamper your social life and leave you feeling self-conscious. Fortunately, Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai can improve a problem like this with Invisalign®.

This treatment includes the use of removable, custom-shaped aligners that are made from a durable, clear plastic. They are so unobtrusive that the casual observer will likely fail to notice they’re in your mouth.

Each pair of aligners is designed to make minor adjustments to the orientation and position of your teeth. Every two weeks you will need to switch out to a new set of clear, plastic aligners. Each set is tuned to bring you one gradual step closer to your final alignment goals.

With the Invisalign aligners in your mouth, you can drink and speak normally. However, you will need to remove them before eating, chewing gum, or using tobacco products. If you need to temporarily remove them, you should keep the aligners in the case provided. Improvising with a napkin or a plastic bag invites accidental loss or damage.

Once your alignment goals have been attained, Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai might fit you for a clear, plastic retainer to ensure your teeth don’t relapse out of their new position. This is a removable mouthpiece made from a similar clear, plastic material as the aligners.
