Invisalign Treatment Wins in Smile, Bite, and Oral Health Benefits!
Bite With the Best!
Invisalign clear braces are an excellent way to gently and precisely nudge your teeth exactly as is needed for you to create a perfect smile you can’t wait to show off. These aligners can give your smile:
- Straighter teeth.
- Zero gaps.
- Less crowded teeth.
- A bite that lines up correctly.
Aside from how your new smile looks, your overall oral health will improve as our dentist creates the optimal smile for your teeth and mouth. You will be better able to chew your food for proper digestion and avoid future jaw alignment problems that often come from a crooked bite.
Invisalign Clear Aligners or Traditional Metal Braces?
Invisalign clear aligners fit more precisely than metal braces due to the accuracy of the 3D model of your mouth used to design and create them. Small exact adjustments can be made to gently align your teeth to your treatment plan.
Another great thing about Invisalign aligners is that often no one will know you are wearing them. Unlike traditional braces, you will enjoy the comfort of straightening your teeth without any metal brackets or wires that can irritate your mouth or gums or break at an inconvenient time.
Invisalign aligners can be used by patients of all ages and both adults and teenagers throughout the world have improved their smile and bite with this great product.
Invisalign Orthodontics Is Perfect for Both Adults and Teens
Over 12 million satisfied adults and 3 million happy teens have straightened their teeth using Invisalign clear aligners. These happy patients know that Invisalign aligners are a great way to improve their smile, bite, and oral health without needing to change their lifestyle.
You can easily remove and store your Invisalign clear aligners for any special occasion:
- A job interview.
- Sporting events.
- Musical performances.
Without the wires and brackets of traditional braces to get in the way, you can remove Invisalign aligners whenever you want to eat any of your favorite foods.
As long as you wear your Invisalign aligners 20–22 hours each day, your teeth and mouth will be transformed just as you want them to be.
Optimize Your Oral Health
Misaligned, crooked, missing, or overcrowded teeth can create a variety of problems with your oral health. A poor bite can make chewing food difficult and eventually cause problems with your stomach and digestion. Gaps and crooked teeth can lead to cavities, and overcrowded teeth can create problems with your gums.
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems can happen whenever your teeth interfere with how your jawbone opens and closes. Misaligned or overcrowded teeth can create chewing problems that can later lead to jaw pain that may need oral surgery to correct.
How Does Invisalign Orthodontics Work?
Your First Invisalign Design Consultation
At your first Invisalign visit to Vibrant Dental, a specially trained Invisalign dentist will carefully examine and evaluate your smile and bite. With this information, our dentist will discuss your unique needs and design a custom treatment plan just for you.
Dental equipment has come a long way. One of the benefits of Invisalign orthodontics is the preciseness provided by technology. Our dentist’s examination will include a 3D digital scan of your mouth that replaces the old-fashioned putty impressions. Our dentist will be checking:
- Your teeth.
- Your gums.
- Your jaw.
- Your bite.
We will use these scans to make a quick and accurate 3D digital model of your mouth. Using this model, we will create and show you a step-by-step plan of how your teeth will be gently straightened to create your new and better smile.
Fabricating Your Custom Invisalign Aligners
After you completely understand and approve your Invisalign dental treatment plan, a set of Invisalign clear aligners will be custom-made just for you. This involves a 3D printing process that creates aligners to be an exact fit for your mouth and teeth.
When To Wear Your Invisalign Aligners
You need to wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours each day for the best results. Our dentist will advise you when it is time to change to the next set. As your teeth move to their new correct position, you may be able to gradually reduce the amount of time you need to wear them and in some cases, you may only have to wear them at night.
Here are some tips for a successful Invisalign treatment:
- Remove your Invisalign aligners for meals and any snacks.
- Avoid smoking while wearing your aligners so you don’t stain them.
- Avoid chewing gum with aligners on because it may stick to the plastic material.
Invisalign clear aligners will stay firmly in place whenever you wear them. Go ahead and sleep, talk, laugh, or sing while they remain snugly fitted around your teeth.
Level-Up to Your Next Invisalign Aligner
Change to a new set of aligners every 1–2 weeks to gently move your teeth comfortably and predictably into the proper alignment.
Through a series of regularly scheduled visits, our dentist will monitor the exact process of how your teeth are being straightened. Any needed corrections can be made so that your Invisalign clear aligners fit just right and are comfortable to wear.
Are Your Aligners Working?
Invisalign clear aligners gently and consistently move your teeth with precise, constant pressure. You may experience some discomfort or slight pressure during the first few days. This is normal and lets you know your aligners are working just as they should to carefully transform your teeth and mouth to give you a great smile.
As your Invisalign aligners slowly move your teeth, they may feel slightly loose when you remove the aligner. This is common and lets you know that your mouth and gums are gradually re-forming around each repositioned tooth, as it moves into its new planned alignment.
Commonly Asked Questions About Invisalign Clear Braces
My Aligner Broke—What Do I Do?
If an aligner becomes damaged or broken, our Vibrant Dental team will make sure you stay on track with your unique dental treatment plan. While a new replacement aligner set is being made, you may need to wear an earlier set of aligners to maintain your unique teeth straightening process.
How Do I Care For My Aligners?
You can care for your Invisalign aligners by regularly brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water. Keeping your teeth clean will help make sure the aligner fits snugly and your oral hygiene stays up to par. It also prevents aligners from becoming stained.
Is Invisalign Treatment Right for Me?
Invisalign clear aligners are a great choice for busy people who want a great smile and bite, but don’t want the discomfort or look of metal hardware in their mouth.
Your tongue may have to get used to your Invisalign aligners when you first start wearing them. This can temporarily affect your speech but it will quickly return to normal when you become accustomed to wearing them. This does not mean they won’t work for you.
What Are Invisalign Trays Made Of?
The aligners are made out of a specially-formulated acrylic plastic called SmartTrack that has many features:
- The strong, yet soft plastic formulation is ideal for creating a gentle and consistent pressure that gradually nudges your teeth to the right location.
- Invisalign aligners are comfortable and easy to remove and put back on.
- The name SmartTrak comes from small blue indicators built into the clear aligner. These “track” the progress of your teeth realignment.
- The SmartTrack material is completely safe and non-toxic.
- Invisalign aligners are lighter than traditional metal braces, brackets, and wire and more comfortable to wear.
- Your aligners are custom-made for your teeth and mouth.
- The clear material is almost invisible and almost no one will notice them
I’ve Already Had Orthodontic Treatment—Can I Still Get Invisalign Braces?
If you are currently wearing traditional braces, our dentists at Vibrant Dental can help create a treatment plan using a combination of braces and Invisalign clear aligners. Even if your teeth have shifted after wearing braces, Invisalign clear aligners are a great, nearly invisible option to bring back your smile and confidence.
How Affordable Is the Invisalign Treatment Process?
Invisalign clear aligners cost about as much as traditional braces depending on how much your teeth need to be adjusted and how many aligners you will need to make the needed changes. Though the Invisalign treatment process often requires fewer visits to the office, which helps lower the overall cost.
We work with many insurance companies that cover Invisalign treatment. Allow us to make the necessary calls to coordinate with your insurance provider.
How Long Will the Treatment Take?
You will begin to wear your first set of Invisalign aligners 20–22 hours a day. In about 2 weeks, as your teeth gently move into perfect alignment, you will move to the next set of specially designed and custom-fitted Invisalign aligners. You will continue to switch from set to set until you have your beautiful new smile.
No two mouths and teeth are alike and your dentist will create a plan that works best for you. Treatment can last anywhere from 6–18 months. Variables that change the treatment time include:
- Case severity.
- Your diligence in wearing your aligners.
- How closely your teeth follow your prescribed treatment plan.
- Whether any prep work (like extractions) needs to be completed.
Will My Invisalign Results Last?
Once your treatment is complete and your teeth are realigned, our dentist may recommend wearing a retainer to keep your teeth in perfect alignment and prevent them from gradually shifting back to their original position.
Don’t worry, you’ll only need to wear this device at night! It will keep your teeth in their proper locations so you can keep your straight smile for the rest of your life.
