Benefits of Invisalign

Set of clear aligners resting in an Invisalign® branded case on a blue background.Invisalign offers so many benefits that they have transformed the way we approach teeth straightening. The biggest advantage is that the aligners are virtually invisible, and provide users with a more discreet option compared to traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are also removable. This allows for easier brushing and flossing, and eating without restrictions.

In addition to the visual appeal, Invisalign is known for comfort. The smooth plastic aligners eliminate the discomfort and irritation associated with traditional metal braces. The treatment process is completely personalized to each individual patient. Each set of aligners gradually shifts the teeth over time. Invisalign offers a convenient and effective solution for achieving a straighter smile without compromise.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, custom-made aligners to reposition a patient's teeth gradually, and with minimal discomfort. The process begins with a digital scan of the patient's teeth, which is used to create a 3D model of the teeth, and an animation of the straightening process. Based on the model, a series of aligners is then crafted to gradually shift the teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks before progressing to the next.

In addition, we schedule regular appointments to ensure that the treatment stays on track, and make adjustments when necessary. This leads to a beautifully aligned smile at the end of the Invisalign process.

Advantages of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

Invisalign presents a host of advantages over traditional metal braces. The biggest benefit is the visual appeal of the virtually invisible aligners. In addition, the flexibility, comfort, and effectiveness of Invisalign make it a popular choice over traditional braces for many patients.

However, it is important to keep in mind that Invisalign is not a viable treatment for everyone. Please call our All About Orthodontics team at 586-999-8818 to find out if Invisalign is appropriate for your individual orthodontic needs.

Comfort and Convenience

The absence of metal brackets and wires provides a more comfortable experience compared to traditional metal braces. In addition, Invisalign aligners are customized for each patient to ensure a comfortable fit.

Aesthetics and Discretion

The clear, nearly invisible aligners are discreet. They allow users to undergo treatment without the conspicuous look or discomfort associated with metal braces.

Oral Hygiene Maintenance

The ability to remove the aligners is a key advantage. This enables much easier brushing and flossing than with traditional braces.

Effectiveness of Invisalign

The effectiveness of Invisalign orthodontic treatment is well-established. Invisalign aligners are customized to the individual's specific needs for a highly precise approach to orthodontic treatment. The clear aligners apply gentle force and gradually shift teeth into their desired positions over time. Regular check-ups with our team ensures that treatment goes according to plan, and stays on schedule. This also provides an opportunity for necessary adjustments.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

Invisalign is suitable for addressing mild to moderate crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, more severe cases may require the use of traditional metal braces. Each patient is different. The only way to be certain that you can use Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment is to contact our team here at All About Orthodontics for an evaluation.

What Is the Process of Getting Invisalign?

The process begins with an initial consultation where we assess the patient, and discuss their treatment goals. If Invisalign is suitable, digital scans are taken to create a 3D model of the teeth. Using this model, a series of custom-made clear aligners is then crafted. The patient receives the first set of aligners. They are worn for about two weeks before progressing to the next set. This process is repeated until the teeth are moved into their desired positions. Regular check-ups are scheduled to monitor progress and make adjustments when needed.

Aftercare and Maintenance

After completing treatment, proper aftercare is crucial to ensure the longevity of the results. Wearing retainers is often a part of the maintenance after Invisalign. After treatment, our team continues to monitor overall oral health at regular check ups, and address any issues. Adherence to post treatment recommendations is vital to the long term success of the treatment.

Retainers and Post-Treatment Care

Patients are often provided with retainers to maintain the alignment of the teeth after orthodontic treatment. Wearing retainers as directed is essential to ensure that teeth remain in their ideal positions. Detailed instructions are provided for wearing, cleaning, and maintaining retainers as part of the post treatment plan.

Follow-up Visits and Monitoring

Follow-up visits and monitoring are an integral part of aftercare. Patients are scheduled for regular check-ups with our team to monitor the stability of their teeth alignment. During these follow-ups, we assess the teeth, check the fit of retainers, and address questions and concerns. Adjustments to the retainer plan may be made based on progress. These appointments are essential to ensure that the teeth remain in their desired positions after treatment.

FAQs about Invisalign

Patients must make many careful considerations before choosing an Invisalign treatment. We work closely to consider your individual needs, preferences, and concerns to ensure that each treatment goes smoothly, and we encourage patients to ask any questions that they have so that we can help make the best treatment decisions for each individual. We also encourage each patient to express any concerns so we can ease their anxieties, and make sure that there are no surprises during treatment.

How Often Should Aligners Be Worn?

Aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours per day. Without wearing the aligners as directed, the treatment is less effective, and the duration of treatment extends.

Can Invisalign Treat Severe Cases?

Invisalign aligners are for mild to moderate cases. Traditional braces must be used to treat more complex orthodontic issues. However, ceramic braces and lingual braces provide discreet orthodontic treatment options for patients with more severe orthodontic issues.

Can Invisalign Affect Eating Habits?

The only eating restriction with Invisalign is that the aligners must be removed before eating. In addition, the only beverage that can be consumed with the aligners in place on the teeth is water.
