Invisalign Q & A

 

 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system of smooth, clear, plastic aligners that straighten your teeth without metal. If you have any of the following issues, Invisalign could be the teeth-straightening answer you need: 

  • Overbite, when front teeth overlap 
  • Underbite, when bottom teeth overlap
  • Open bite, when top and bottom arches don’t meet
  • Crowded mouth, when teeth crowd together
  • Crossbite, when some upper teeth rest inside the lower arch
  • Gaps between teeth

 

Although Invisalign can move teeth quite efficiently, it’s not right for every case. If you have severe misalignment, you might need another kind of orthodontic treatment, like braces. 

 

How does the Invisalign process work?

Your Dee for Dentist care provider begins with a digital laser scan of your mouth using state-of-the-art iTero Element® optical technology. The iTero Element scan produces a perfect 3D digital rendering of your entire mouth, which goes directly into the ClinCheck® smile design software. 

Your Dee for Dentist care provider designs a personalized treatment plan using the ClinCheck system. This highly tailored treatment plan allows you to view the expected results before you even get started. 

An Invisalign laboratory creates your aligners according to the treatment plan your dentist designed. Aligners are made from SmartTrack™ material, which is engineered to be strong but flexible as it straightens your teeth. Every aligner is trimmed to fit your teeth and gum line perfectly. 

You get a series of aligners to wear as you progress through treatment. Most patients change their aligners every two weeks, but you might wear them as little as one week, depending on your treatment plan.

 

How long does it take to finish Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment typically takes around 12-18 months for teens and adults. Of course, this can vary depending on your needs and treatment plan. 

However, because the Dee for Dentist team has had advanced training with Invisalign treatment, 30% to 50% of the standard time required for orthodontists or general practitioners to perform the treatment is shaved off. Depending on the complexity, many treatments can be completed in as little as 6 months. This means you'll see faster results when the procedure is performed by a physician at Dee for Dentist. 

For optimal results, it’s important to wear your Invisalign aligners consistently for 20-22 hours every day. Remove aligners for meals, and when you’re doing your daily oral care routine.

 

How can I keep my teeth straight after Invisalign?

The best way to keep your teeth straight after Invisalign is a customized retainer. A Vivera retainer, made by Invisalign, is the perfect complement to Invisalign treatment. Your teeth are most subject to shifting just after you complete treatment, so that’s why it’s so vital to wear a retainer. The Vivera retainer is clear, which means it’s just as subtle as Invisalign.
