How our Invisalign process works:
Most of the time there will be specific indications to the dentist from the company to place “attachments” or perform “IPR”. The “attachments” are tooth color small buttons protruding from the outside of some teeth done with resin or composite material . These buttons help move teeth more effectively. “IPR” stands for inter-proximal reduction and interproximal means in between the teeth. This is done with a small file or a disk and it creates very small spaces in between highly crowded teeth to allow more space for alignment. The space needed varies depending on the patient’s need. It could be 0.10mm, 0.20, or even 0.50 mm.
