The world of orthodontics has changed a lot in the last few decades. Gone are the days when braces were seen as a sign of shame, and today we have treatments like Invisalign that offer both clear treatment and discreet treatment options.
Many people have similar questions about Invisalign aligners Here is our complete list of answers to the most common Invisalign FAQs. This article will answer all these questions and more so you know exactly what to expect during your journey to straight teeth!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to align your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted. Using sophisticated 3D computer technology, Invisalign can represent your entire treatment plan. Then a series of clear aligners are custom made for your teeth, and your teeth only, to move them little by little.
Each aligner should be worn for approximately one to two weeks before replacing with the next in the series until the teeth gradually come to the prescribed final position. The duration of your Invisalign treatment is determined by the importance of the dental displacements to be carried out, according to your specific needs.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. No one can notice you’re wearing them, so Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily activities and social life in any way. Invisalign aligners are removable. Unlike attached metal appliances, you can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment by simply removing them. You can also take them off to brush your teeth and use dental floss to maintain good oral hygiene and fresh breath. Unlike traditional fixed appliances, Invisalign has no rings and no metal wires. This means you spend less time at your practitioner’s to make adjustments. Finally, you will be able to view a virtual image of the result of your treatment before you have even started it so that you can see what your teeth will look like once the treatment is finished.
Is this a new method for aligning teeth?
Dentists and orthodontists have successfully used removable appliances for years. But thanks to Align Technology’s 3D technology and large-scale custom manufacturing, the Invisalign system can be used to treat a large number of patients who wish to align their teeth. The specific software allows patients to visualize their treatment plan from its beginning to its end, even before having started it.
How many patients have been treated with Invisalign?
Nearly 4 million patients worldwide have already been treated or are being treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles is increasing every day.
What is the cost of Invisalign treatment?
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your problem and your treatment plan. As a rule, the cost is comparable to that of traditional fixed devices. Although only a consultation at ENSMILE can determine the cost of your entire Invisalign treatment, prices are usually between 150,000 and 170,000.
How can I start treatment?
Simply make an appointment with Ensmile at +042-111-321-111 for an initial consultation.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move teeth by applying controlled movements to them. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign not only controls movement but also its speed. At each stage, only certain teeth may move, depending on the treatment plan for that particular stage. This allows forces to be exerted efficiently in order to move the teeth into the desired prescribed position.
What material are aligners made of and what do they look like?
The clear aligners are made of a very strong medical grade thermoplastic material, developed specifically for the Invisalign system. They are custom-made for you and fit your teeth perfectly.
How to clean the aligners?
With a toothbrush and cold or lukewarm water, then rinse with cold water.
Can I change aligner before the time prescribed by my orthodontist?
No, aligners should be worn exactly as prescribed. The period for changing aligners can vary from 5 days to 3 weeks depending on the patient and above all, for the same patient, depending on the phase of treatment and the movements performed. It is therefore not uncommon for us to ask to change this period during the course of the treatment.
What should I do with aligners that I no longer wear?
Keep them, and bring them to each appointment.
