Why Choose Invisalign Treatment?

Over 7 million people worldwide trust the Invisalign system of advanced clear aligners for the teeth. It is used to realign misaligned teeth with a series of custom-made aligners that are specifically tailored for each patient.

Three components power the Invisalign, which can treat a variety of dental conditions from straightforward to complex. It is also used for post-treatment retention. Its main components include SmartForce capabilities, SmartStaging technology, and SmartTrack materials.

Orthodontists with Invisalign training typically recommend an Invisalign system to their patients. The cost of Invisalign products is determined by the doctor based on the patient’s treatment plan.

Invisalign’s Technological Advantages :

  1. The SmartTrack material used in aligner technology constantly provides added force while also applying gentle pressure to help move teeth into the proper alignment.
  2. Each tooth movement using SmartStaging technology is programmed in a specific way to produce the desired results and improve predictability.
  3. To apply a defined force to the tooth so that it moves into a predictable position, the aligners have attachments and other unique features.

Patient Advantages of Invisalign :

  1. Customized Aligners: Using digital scanners to capture an exact image of your teeth, your Orthodontist will design personalized aligners for you.
  2. Aligners that are easily removed: With Invisalign aligners, you can now take them out whenever you need to, such as when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing your teeth, or for any special occasion. Invisalign’s smooth edges ensure that your cheeks and gums are not irritated.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Invisalign treatment consists of 4 basic steps.

  1. Consultation & Examination: The first step is to visit our dental centre so that one of our highly skilled Orthodontists can consult with you and examine you in order to determine the best course of action.
  2. Orthodontic Records: 3D digital scans, radiographs, and photographs are taken to assist our Orthodontists in developing a treatment plan that is right for you.
  3. Digital Scan: We take a digital image of your teeth and send it to the Align Technology Lab, whose job it is to make the best-fitting aligners for you.
  4. Review of ClinCheck: Our Orthodontist sends a thorough prescription that is perfect for your treatment to the Align Technology office. The Align Technology will produce a video that tells the story of your teeth moving from their starting position to their final position with the aid of its cutting-edge digital software. The orthodontist will watch the video, evaluate it, and make a number of adjustments to ensure that your custom aligners are made precisely to your needs.
  5. The final step is the most crucial of these four because it has the biggest impact on how well the treatment goes. Only with the assistance of an experienced Orthodontist can it be ensured that the video presented by Align Technology is a true representation of the final result. Once ClinCheck is approved by the Orthodontist, Align technology will produce the aligners as planned.

Invisalign simply refers to clear teeth aligners that are supported by Align labs’ technology. They provide a virtually invisible, more advanced alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign does not require any wires or brackets when it comes to appearance. Align Technology’s Invisalign treatment includes a series of clear, customized, and removable appliances known as aligners. One of the many reasons patients choose Invisalign treatment is that it is virtually invisible. In fact, these aligners can be removed and replaced as needed. For example, if you need to attend a special event, remove the aligners.

Treatment Time: The time it takes to complete an Invisalign treatment depends on how severe the malocclusion is, which varies from patient to patient. You will probably see results faster with Invisalign aligners than with conventional methods, though. Additionally, fewer appointments are necessary, which fits into your busy schedule.

Comfort: You can easily remove and replace the Invisalign as needed, such as when eating, drinking, or performing regular oral hygiene. Just make sure to brush your teeth before re-putting them on.

Results: It goes without saying that with Invisalign, you always know what to expect. This is due to the fact that the entire procedure is fully computerized and promises to produce more predictable tooth movement. This will make it easier for you to comprehend every aspect, including what results to anticipate and how long you will need to wear the aligners.

True, Invisalign is effective in the majority of cases, but not in all. Indeed, our specialist Orthodontist will examine you and determine whether you are a good candidate for the Invisalign system. When patients have overcrowding, spacing, open bites, cross bites, or overbite teeth, our Orthodontist may recommend the Invisalign system.

Each Align Technology aligner is designed to gently move your teeth into the desired position. In most cases, the aligners are changed every 1-2 weeks. Each subsequent aligner gradually moves your teeth to the desired position, so that by the end of the treatment, your teeth will be in their ideal position.

It is recommended that you wear your Orthodontist-provided aligners for 22 hours per day. This will ensure that the new set of aligners fits correctly. The new set of aligners might not fit as expected and thus won’t produce the desired results if your teeth are not worn for 22 hours each day.

You can, however, take your aligners out on the following occasions:

Eating and drinking: It is convenient to take the aligner out while eating because it will act as a barrier between your teeth and food during the course of your treatment. If necessary, you can continue to wear your aligners while drinking as long as you take precautions and your drink doesn’t stain them, which is possible with some beverages like tea, coffee, or soda.

Oral Hygiene: Invisalign has a unique benefit. When you perform your daily oral hygiene routine, such as brushing or flossing, you can easily take out the aligners.

No, there are no limitations on what you can eat or drink while undergoing treatment with removable aligners. However, it is strongly advised that you maintain good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing your teeth after meals and before re-applying your aligners.

While receiving Invisalign treatment, there may occasionally be no change at all, or it may be minor and temporary. But occasionally, there will be a slight change in speech for a day or two, and when your tongue gets used to the aligners, these slight changes will go away.

You might have a particular lisp when wearing Invisalign for the first time. This lisp may only be noticeable to you. If Invisalign causes any speech problems during treatment, it is strongly advised that you pronounce the words while wearing the aligners. The lisp will gradually disappear as your tongue adjusts to the aligners.

You shouldn’t typically feel any severe pain because Invisalign technology uses a very light pushing force. You might feel some pressure and a little discomfort for a day or two after changing the aligners during the course of treatment.

Although the aligners provided to you by our orthodontist are convenient to remove when you’re eating or drinking, they require some look after. If you fail to clean your trays properly afterwards, it may result in discoloration and bacteria buildup. To make sure that you take care of your Invisalign aligners there are certain Dos and Don’ts which you need to follow:

Dos:

  1. It is recommended that you rinse your aligners when you remove them. Dry saliva and plaque buildup create an ideal ground for breeding bacteria.
  2. It is highly recommended to brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners. If you fail to floss or brush properly, you might trap harmful particles between your teeth and aligners. This increases the likelihood of developing a dental issue such as decay or cavities.
  3. Always clean your aligners with a clear anti-bacterial soft soap. This keeps your aligners clear and of course free from any harmful bacteria.
  4. While cleaning, always brush your aligners gently. As vigorous brushing may scratch your aligners which may leave impressions.

Don’ts:

  1. Eating & drinking while wearing Invisalign: Water is an exception in this case.  Many food items and drinks can stain or discolor your aligners and can cause them to become sticky.  It recommended to remove your Invisalign before you eat or drink.
  2. Cleaning aligners with toothpaste: Certain types of toothpastes, especially the ones with whitening agents are abrasive.  This will dull your aligners or create small holes which are not visible by the naked eye but can trap bacteria to reside and breed.
  3. Cleaning with colored soap: Clear anti-bacterial soap is the best choice for cleaning your aligners.  Anything other than this such as colored soaps can lead to shading or discoloration.
  4. Leaving aligners exposed or unprotected: Leaving your aligners in an open environment expose it to various types of harmful bacteria and germs.  Its highly recommended that you rinse, soak and rinse them again before putting them back on

It is impossible to predict how long your Invisalign treatment will take without first having a thorough oral examination by our Orthodontist due to individual variations in the severity of malocclusion. In adults, it takes 6 to 18 months on average.

Your routine visits with our Orthodontist will be scheduled once every four to six weeks. The appointment’s goal is to ensure that the Invisalign treatment is going according to schedule.

Our Orthodontist advises you not to smoke while wearing aligners because it may discolor them.

You can drink alcohol as long as you remove your aligners first. Clean your teeth and the aligners before reapplying them. This is due to the possibility of sugar becoming trapped between your aligners and teeth. When drinking sugary beverages, you should do the same.

No, gums adhere to aligners. When chewing gum or eating other snacks, it is recommended that you remove your aligners.

When you finish your Invisalign treatment, you must wear retainers just like you would with traditional braces. Our Orthodontist will perform a final scan of your teeth, similar to the one performed at the start of the procedure. Our Orthodontist will provide you with retainers that are comfortable.

The cost of Invisalign varies according to the degree of malocclusion or the extent of crowding. The length of the treatment will be estimated by our Orthodontist, who will also provide you with a treatment schedule and price.

Invisalign treatment takes approximately 12 months on average. You may go through 20 to 30 Invisalign trays during this time period. If you require a greater dental adjustment than others, you may require up to 50 trays during your treatment course. Alternatively, if only minor adjustments are required, you may only need 10 aligning trays.

Following digital scanning, it usually takes 3–4 working days to receive the ClinCheck; after our Orthodontist approves the ClinCheck, it usually takes 3–5 weeks to receive the aligners.

According to an independent study posted at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), within one week, 83 percent of patients have become accustomed to their Invisalign aligners. While wearing their Invisalign aligners, 35% of patients experience no pain and 54% experience mild pain. The patients who felt pain said that it only lasted for two to three days after they first put their new aligners on.

The majority of malocclusions can be treated with Invisalign just as effectively as with fixed braces. When it comes to Invisalign treatment, Al Mumtaz Dental Center has the most options.
