Invisalign at New Gisborne,

Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

Invisalign for teeth straightening is a preferred choice for adults and teenagers. The clear aligners replace traditional bracket and wire braces, and straighten your teeth with greater comfort and quicker results. And they can improve your smile while most people won’t even notice.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses trays that fit over your teeth to slowly move your teeth into alignment. They are an alternative to metal braces for those with crowding and mild to moderately crooked teeth. Made of clear, BPA-free plastic, they fit discreetly over your teeth so you can go to work or school with confidence, and patients love them because they are removable. These benefits have made Invisalign the top choice for those who want straighter teeth for an improved smile.

Benefits of Invisalign

 

Sometimes braces are necessary, for example if teeth are too far out of place or there are other dental issues occurring. But if you have a choice, Invisalign will transform your smile with benefits that braces cannot offer.

Comfort

Traditional braces have a lot of parts, and many of those are made of metal. Sometimes, bits of protruding metal can leave scratches and punctures inside your mouth and the gum line, causing discomfort and stress. But Invisalign trays are smooth plastic, removing the hazards of metal and brackets. And they use less force then braces, ultimately protecting the integrity of tooth enamel.

And More Comfort

Braces require regular dental visits so the orthodontist can tighten the braces. This puts quite a bit of force on the teeth and sometimes causes pain in the jaw or head muscles. Invisalign trays slowly move your teeth into position without the painful tightening of wires and metal brackets. Each time you get a new tray, your teeth have straightened a bit and are ready for the next level.

Play Ball

If you play sports, you can keep on playing. Your new Invisalign trays will stay in place, and because there’s no metal, you don’t have to worry about scratches or abrasions from impact or jarring.

No Restricted Diets

Unlike traditional braces with metal and rubber bands, Invisalign will not interfere with eating. Simply remove the tray while you eat and put it back on when you’re done. This eliminates the need for a special diet to avoid sticky or crunchy foods.

Less Treatment Time

Metal braces often take years to work and require multiple dental visits, which can drag the time out even more. But Invisalign is known to straighten some teeth in as little as a year, so you can enjoy your new smile sooner.

Take a Break

Of course, we’d all love a straight smile, but sometimes people will put braces on hold due to work or upcoming events like a graduation or a wedding, where they want to look their best. But you don’t have to worry about that with Invisalign. The trays are removable, allowing you to take a break for a day or even a month, and pick up where you left off. Even if you take a break for a month or so, your new teeth will be straighter then when you first began treatment.

The Invisalign Technology

The Invisalign system utilises new technology and is the most advanced system of its kind. With a combination of digital x-rays, 3D scanning and 3D treatment planning and design, we will create a custom system for your individual set of teeth.

Once we take the x-rays, the Invisalign lab will use virtual modelling software that programs the best movement for each tooth at the right time. Invisalign’s specialised software, Clincheck, creates a personalised treatment plan for you. And patented SmartForce features are used to ensure that the aligners address a range of clinical situations, so we use what is ideal for your teeth.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

 

While Invisalign is the most popular solution for teeth alignment, it’s not for everyone. For example, aligners should be worn 20-22 hours a day, and children may find it difficult to wear them for that length of time. Every child is different, and your gentle and caring dental professional here at Dental House can help you decide if your child is a good candidate.

Invisalign is a solution for mild to moderate misalignment cases. If displacement of the teeth is too severe, you may be a candidate for traditional or clear braces. However, the following situations are ideal for Invisalign treatment:

Z

Crowded teeth

Z

Crossbite

Z

Overbite

Z

Underbite

Z

Gapped teeth

Z

Children with bite issues as Invisalign may protect them from getting worse

Z

Children with narrow dental arches

How it Works

 

Because each case is unique, we perform a thorough dental exam to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. The following are the steps you can expect:

During your initial dental exam, your dental professional will determine if Invisalign is right for you; once we determine it is, the process begins.

We begin by taking digital dental x-rays, moulds of your teeth and 3D scans.

The Invisalign lab will use this information to create a plan specific for your bite, and create a series of alignment trays.

You will come in for another appointment so you can try your first tray and go over instructions of use and care.

Your trays will feel like they seem to not quite fit as expected. This is because the tray is not shaped to fit your current teeth, but shaped to gently move your teeth into alignment. After wearing your tray for 20 to 22 hours each day for about two weeks, your teeth will have slowly straightened to fit the tray, and you are ready for your next one.

You might notice that some teeth feel more out of place in the tray than others. This is because each tray is designed to address different teeth. Invisalign technology helps determine the best path of which teeth to straighten each time, so we get reliable results.

On average the entire process takes 13.5 months; much quicker than traditional orthodontics.
