Clear aligners are a transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust teeth. They are a great solution for patients seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment than conventional braces, as they do not use brackets or wires.
Clear aligners are custom made to fit into your mouth like a mouthguard. Each set of trays is worn for a predetermined period of time, usually between one and two weeks, and moves your teeth slightly in the direction Dr. Shojaei had prescribed. The next set of trays will then continue the tooth movement and so on, until all the teeth are in their final position.
“Buttons” or “attachments” are often required with clear aligners. These small protrusions of filling material are placed on the lip or cheek surface of several teeth. They add stability and retention and provide a greater surface area if more pressure is required to move a tooth in a particular direction. These attachments are removed at completion of treatment and do not damage the tooth in any way.
Clear aligners are great for patients requiring minor orthodontic treatment. The patient would be committed to following the restrictions (no eating or drinking anything other than water with the trays in place) and be able to wear the trays for a total of 22 hours a day. Clear aligners are highly dependent on compliance and must be worn diligently as prescribed to ensure a successful outcome.
What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® is a custom-made set of clear plastic aligners which are comfortable and invisible as compared to traditional braces. If you are looking to straighten your teeth using the latest technology, Invisalign® is your best choice. Invisalign aligners are often called ‘invisible braces’.
Who is Invisalign® treatment for?
Patients who can wear the Invisalign aligners for at least 20- 22 hours a day are eligible for Invisalign®. It is also the most recommended treatment for older teenagers and adults.
What is the treatment process?
Custom aligners are created after taking a mould of your teeth which can be used to create a digital scan. These scans are used to create your custom aligners. Aligners are shaped such that they apply pressure in the right places to shift the alignment of the teeth. Based on your orthodontist’s recommendation, your aligners might need to be changed every one or two weeks.
How will Invisalign® treatment affect my life?
It may take a day or two for your mouth to get the feel of the Invisalign aligners. This varies person to person and is a temporary effect. Though it is recommended to keep the aligners for 20-22 hours per day for best outcomes, you may remove them for important occasions like weddings, job interviews etc.
