Numerous benefits that make Invisalign worth its cost
The Invisalign treatment involves the use of clear, plastic aligners, which make them almost invisible to the eye. The aligners are custom-fitted for each individual, and can treat a wide range of dental conditions, including overcrowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. One of the treatment’s main advantages is it slowly guides teeth into their ideal places, resulting in minimal to zero discomfort. Treatments can last between only 3 to 6 months, or up to 2 years, depending on the severity of each case. Your orthodontist will meet with you about every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor your progress, as well as to fit you with a new pair of aligners; these are modified according to your recent developments. Other advantages of Invisalign include:
Each aligner should be worn at least 20 to 22 hours, but it can be removed so you can eat and drink normally. It also helps you to brush and floss more effectively, ensuring you’re able to take good care of your oral health.
Gradual teeth movement
The treatment does not cause sudden changes in your dental condition, making it a more comfortable way to correct teeth alignment.
Though it gradually adjusts teeth, it can still produce in most of the cases visible quick results faster than other methods.
The aligners are made of a smooth plastic material, so users feel comfortable wearing them.
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you've always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan based on our orthodontist’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined based on your specific needs.
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible aligners, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases less time is spent in your Invisalign adjustments.
And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you even begin treatment so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete
More than 4 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily.
The virtually invisible aligners are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the Invisalign System. The aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth.
Invisalign aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign not only controls the amount of movement per aligner, but also the timing of the movement. So at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, as per the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.
With experience, Invisalign can be used to treat malocclusion for a majority of adults and adolescents who want a better smile. For teenagers, our orthodontist will see if Invisalign Teen may be the right treatment option for your child.
The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. Typically treatment can last between 9 and 18 months. During your consultation, our orthodontist provide you with more detailed information.
Some people may experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days, at the beginning of each new stage of treatment when they insert a new aligner. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the aligners are working – moving your teeth gradually, helping you to achieve the final results. This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.
Yes. Spaces between teeth are generally easy to close with Invisalign. After consultation, our orthodontist will determine whether Invisalign is suitable for you.
No. Unlike traditional wires and brackets, you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. Thus, there is no need to restrict consuming any of your favourite foods and snacks. Also, it is important that you brush and floss your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.
Aligners should be worn all the time during treatment, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth.
Smoking is discouraged while wearing aligners because it is possible for the aligners to become stained or discoloured.
Chewing gum while wearing aligners is not advised as gum can stick to aligners. It is recommended that aligners be removed for all meals and snacks.
The best way to clean your aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water and using the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets. It’s important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.
