Invisalign Clear Aligners
One of the primary concerns people often have about dental braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile. Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Invisalign offers an almost invisible aligner system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligner trays.
The dentist changes the trays every several weeks to fit the new tooth configuration.
In addition to the reduced visual impact, Invisalign aligners can be temporarily removed for important occasions, meaning that treatment duration is patient-controlled. A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign treatment and the stunning results.
What kind of bite problems can Invisalign correct?
Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign trays are almost invisible to the naked eye and can be removed at will.
An overcrowded mouth can means there is insufficient space within the jaw for all the adult teeth to fit naturally. Overcrowding may lead to displaced, rotated or completely misaligned teeth.
Excessive space between the teeth.
An Excessive Overbite
An overbite refers to when upper front teeth overlap over front teeth too much.
Anterior crossbite: Occurs when the lower front teeth are in front of the upper front teeth.
Posterior crossbite: Occurs in the back teeth when the upper and lower teeth do not fit together properly.
What advantages does Invisalign offer over traditional braces?
Traditional dental braces, Invisalign aligner trays are three different ways to perfect the alignment of the teeth.
There are many different considerations to make when considering which treatment will be best,
and each of these options works better in certain situations.
Invisalign differs from traditional braces in that the aligners are fully removable.
This means that more discipline and commitment is required from the patient.
This is not usually a problem since the trays are comfortable and nearly invisible.
Almost identical results can be obtained by using either treatment.
What does Invisalign treatment involve?
First, we need to devise an initial treatment plan before creating the special aligners.
Three-dimensional digital images are taken of the teeth. These images allow the dentist to move specific teeth on the screen.
Once planning is complete, you come in and we inform you of the plan. Once the plan is approved we order the trays required to complete treatment. The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case.
What are some considerations when wearing Invisalign trays?
Life with Invisalign aligners may take several weeks to get used to.
The trays should be worn constantly, except when eating and drinking.
It is important to remove the trays when consuming food or drink because food can become trapped between the tray and the teeth, causing tooth decay or aligners may become damaged or broken. Typically, aligners are changes biweekly.
