Invisalign Treatment Process

Not all dentists or orthodontists have received proper training using Invisalign. Our dentists are accredited – equipped and trained to evaluate what needs to be done to bring out the best of your smile using Invisalign.

There are five basic steps involved in the Invisalign treatment process to achieve the stunning smile you desire.

  1. It all starts with an assessment. Are you wondering if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment? Your journey to having straighter teeth begins by scheduling a one-on-one with Dr. Andy, Dr. Joel or Dr. Tyler.
  2. After the initial consultation, a customized treatment plan will be designed that’s focused on your needs. Pictures, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth will be taken and used to create a patient-focused treatment plan.
  3. The third phase involves creating a personalized treatment plan; clear, custom-made aligners will also be created for you. Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable and virtually invisible plastic material. They are gentle on your teeth and gums.
  4. During the fourth phase, you will be asked to wear new or adjusted invisible aligners every two weeks or so, depending on your treatment plan. You will also be required to undergo regular checkups to monitor your progress.
  5. The fifth phase marks the completion of the treatment. By this time, your teeth will look straighter, and your smile will be gorgeous!.

The Differences Between Invisalign and Braces

They Are Clear

If you are visiting a family dentist’s office to learn more about orthodontic treatment, then you need to know the differences between Invisalign and braces. You probably have seen them advertised on television because these clear aligners are the newest, fastest and easiest way to straighten mild malocclusions of the teeth.

In the past, many individuals avoided orthodontic treatment unless they had major problems such as severe overbites or large gaps between their teeth. This was because the only type of treatment available was metallic wire and bracket braces that were easy for everyone to see and also felt uncomfortable in the mouth.

Improve Mild Malocclusions

Fortunately, Invisalign you can improve simple dental problems by shifting the front teeth into a better position to create a gorgeous smile and a stronger bite. The most visible difference is that you can see braces inside your mouth and other people can also see the wires or ceramic brackets.

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment because your dentist can create the devices quickly from molds after taking medical images of your mouth and facial structure. A computer software program is able to create approximately 25 sets of Invisalign aligners that are each made in a slightly different configuration.

Aligners are Removable

When you receive your first set aligners, you will wear the devices for approximately two weeks and return for another evaluation from the dentist.

In some cases, adjustments are required for future aligners, especially for teenagers who grow rapidly. The dentist will tell you to wear the aligners for 23 hours each day, and you should only remove the devices for oral health care that includes brushing and flossing.

Invisalign aligners are almost impossible to see, but a dentist may permit removal of the items for special occasions. If you follow a dentist’s guidelines for wearing them, your teeth will shift into the correct positions faster.

Durable Plastic Devices

You will wear one Invisalign on your top teeth and one on your bottom teeth to move teeth slowly into better positions to reduce gaps and misalignment. An aligner is made of a durable plastic that will begin to show some wear and tear over the two weeks it is worn. You feel slight pressure on your teeth as the devices push against dental surfaces.

Make sure to wear the aligners in the correct order that a dentist recommends, and if an Invisalign aligner degrades completely, then contact a dentist to learn how to deal with the situation.

Aligners are Affordable

While you might want to wear aligners instead of braces, only a dentist can determine if the devices are suitable for your malocclusions. If you have severe misalignment of your teeth, then a dentist can customize braces that are worn for a longer amount of time.

Today, there are lingual braces worn on the backs of teeth or color-matching ceramic braces that are difficult for others to see inside your mouth. Invisalign aligners cost less than braces and you do not need to visit a family dentist’s office as often.
