Invisalign

Orthodontic treatment Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal braces to correct teeth. Clear braces called Invisalign are custom-made, removable aligners worn over the teeth and gradually moving them into place. They’re less apparent than standard metal braces because they’re clear and removable. Most people wish to improve their smile, but many believe that the only choice is to use traditional metal braces. While wearing Invisalign clear braces, your smile won’t be marred by metal brackets or wires. With Invisalign clear braces, you can straighten your teeth in half the time it takes with regular braces while still feeling comfortable and looking great. Adults who have put off orthodontic treatment for years can finally get it done using Invisalign clear aligners, which are clear and virtually undetectable.

What is included in Invisalign treatment?

Every step of your treatment, from your 3D scans to your retainers, will be included in your quoted price.

Appointment for dental hygiene

Prior to scanning your teeth, one of our skilled hygienists will perform a full scale and polish. With this, we are able to take dental impressions as accurately as possible and ensure that your teeth remain in excellent condition.

Those wearing braces will not be charged for their first hygiene appointment. In the event you wish to have additional hygiene appointments during your treatment, you may choose to enhance your treatment plan.

ClinCheck for Invisalign

Your orthodontist may have taken imprints of your teeth using a gooey substance known as alginate if you’ve ever had braces in the past, and you may remember this procedure. The development of digital scanners has made accomplishing the same task easier and faster than ever before.

ClinCheck, Invisalign’s advanced software, develops a 3D treatment plan using your scans and information. With a 3-D image, your dentist will show you precisely how your teeth will move, as well as give you an idea of how your treatment will play out.

Routine examinations and adjustments

Invisalign treatment includes all of your follow-up appointments, which are included in the cost of your treatment. After receiving your first set of aligners, we’ll schedule follow-up appointments every 6–12 weeks to determine how you’re doing. It is possible that we need to make minor adjustments to your teeth or aligners at these sessions.

Attachments and IPR in the Invisalign system

We may find it necessary to connect tooth-colored Invisalign buttons to your teeth to accomplish more exact tooth movements during your treatment. Once they’ve finished their job, they’re fairly discrete and easy to remove.

The majority of patients require interproximal reduction (IPR) before or during treatment to achieve the best possible outcome. IPR is a procedure that involves the removal of small bits of enamel from between your teeth to create additional space.

Appointments for emergency situations

In most cases, your treatment should be smooth. However, it is possible for aligners to go missing or attachments to come loose on rare occasions. If you experience any difficulties, please give us a call as soon as possible. If you have an emergency and need to come in, we will organize an appointment for you at no additional charge.

Keeping retainers

Invisalign treatment may include retainers, so make sure to take this into account while considering your treatment. Without them, your teeth will drift back to wherever they started. They’re essential for maintaining the straightness of your smile.

Our Invisalign packages include both clear, removable retainers (same size as Invisalign aligners) as well as clear, fixed retainers. These are attached behind your teeth to provide you with additional peace of mind. You must keep your retainers in place constantly and replace them once they become worn out.

Teeth Reshaping

We provide an additional finishing touch to our patients’ smiles by providing their teeth with the shape and contour they need. Small amounts of enamel are removed from the surface of your teeth in the course of this procedure, leading to the contouring of your teeth painlessly. Although not everyone requires tooth contouring, it can affect the appearance of your teeth if they’re slightly crooked or asymmetric.

How long is the treatment for Invisalign?

The usual treatment duration for Invisalign is one year, although treatment times will vary depending on the patient’s age and the specific demands of each individual. Each case is unique, so after your teeth have been evaluated and digital photos have been taken, you will be given an estimate of how long your treatment will take.

Invisalign Treatment Services We Can Offer

Dental Hygiene Appointments

Patients’ requirements vary, and we take great satisfaction in tailoring the time of any visit to meet your requirements as closely as possible. Appointment times may range from 30 to 45 minutes.

Dental Impressions thru iTero 3D Scanner

The use of intraoral scanning as a method of obtaining dental images has become increasingly popular in recent years. We can create accurate and detailed dental models with this technology, which improves the effectiveness of restorative dental procedures. Traditional 2D imaging isn’t enough for modern patient-tailored dental procedures like Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign Attachments

For optimal results, it is necessary to position Invisalign attachments correctly on the teeth. There shouldn’t be any serious considerations with attachments. This is much less invasive than having brackets attached to each tooth.

Retainers

When you have had your teeth straightened, you need a retainer, which prevents them from shifting. The new position of your teeth takes anywhere from four to six months to become permanent. Relapse occurs during this period when your teeth try to shift back into their previous positions.

Teeth Reshaping

By reshaping a tooth, one can improve its appearance and contour it into a slightly better form. Occasionally, your teeth may have a slightly out-of-shape tip or one tooth may be slightly longer than another. If we file the tip of your tooth slightly, we can enhance the appearance of your tooth and in some cases, your overall smile.

Our Invisalign Process

Consultation Appointment

A consultation session with Kumra Ortho will be scheduled to determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for Invisalign treatment and whether or not the patient’s final objective is achievable through the Invisalign system. A treatment plan estimate and any questions you may have will be provided when candidacy is confirmed.

Diagnostic Records

If clear aligner treatment is right for you, we’ll get your trays created after gathering some more information. To begin, we’ll take a few pictures of your face and grin, as well as x-rays of your teeth. The scan with our iTero Scanner is the most exciting element of this process (which will show us a 3-D replica of your mouth.) In contrast to some other orthodontic practices, our practice in Kumra Ortho uses quick, easier, and more exact digital impressions to take a mold of your teeth. We will use a handheld wand to wave it over your mouth for several minutes to get an accurate representation of your teeth and gums. Aside from making your orthodontic treatment run more smoothly and providing you with better-fitting aligner trays, the iTero Scanner makes a simulation of your teeth after Invisalign treatment possible in seconds. We will be able to show you an image of what your future smile might look like before you leave your appointment. Then, once we have completed our research and created the digital files for Invisalign, we will upload them to the website and tell Invisalign how the aligners should be created.

Receive Your Custom Aligners

An appointment will be set to place little tooth-colored resin attachments on certain teeth in the treatment plan once the bespoke aligners have been received. In the course of treatment, the transparent aligners will “snap” onto these and apply gentle pressure to reposition the teeth.

Follow-up Appointments

The aligners are worn for 1-2 weeks at a time before the next set is switched on, while the teeth gradually move until all of the aligners are worn, and the most excellent possible result is obtained. Specific instructions vary from situation to situation.

Final Refinements

After you’ve completed all of your initial trays, you may want to go back and make some adjustments. At this point, a few minor adjustments may still be needed to achieve the best results possible. Refinement is frequently required since the teeth require additional corrective movements during the Invisalign process to reach their final position. This is common because it’s difficult to anticipate every action of your teeth when they’re first put in place. Most of the time, you’ll only need to make one or two tweaks. We’ll perform a new 3-D scan of your teeth to create your refining aligners.

Benefits of Getting Invisalign for Your Teeth

Detachable

When you have had your teeth straightened, you need a retainer, which prevents them from shifting. The new position of your teeth takes anywhere from four to six months to become permanent. Relapse occurs during this period when your teeth try to shift back into their previous positions.

Lesser Pain

When compared to braces, SmartStage® and SmartForce® technologies ensure that only moderate and gentle yet effective teeth movement occurs during your treatment. This is in contrast to braces, which can potentially irritate and cause pain throughout treatment.

Clearer Timelines

Every stage of the Invisalign treatment may be visualized, providing you with a better understanding of how long it will take to complete the procedure. Braces can only give you an estimate of how long the treatment will take at the start of the procedure.

Better Oral Health

You can still floss and wash your teeth with Invisalign aligners; however, braces may make it harder for you to clean in between the metal brackets, which may lead to plaque accumulation and
poor oral hygiene.

Invisalign FAQs

Is Invisalign cheaper than regular braces?

The cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to that of traditional braces.

The price of Invisalign is determined by the severity of your dental misalignment and the length of time it will take to fix it. After looking at your teeth, x-rays, and the 3D model, we’ll discuss your treatment options and costs with you.

Should I get an Invisalign or braces?

So not all cases are Invisalign friendly, some cases you cannot treat with Invisalign because the movement needed is just far too complex. Also we know when we treat some of our younger patients that we just won’t be compliant enough to use the Invisalign, so as a doctor, we make a determination about which treatment is going to allow everyone to be successful, patient, parent, and orthodontist. So should I get Invisalign or braces really depends on the case. It really depends on comfort level with having accountability. I will say Invisalign appointment frequency is less than it is with braces. Standard interval for appointments for braces is probably going to be every six to 10 weeks. For Invisalign, it is probably going to be every 9 to 14 weeks.
