How Are Custom Clear Aligners Created?
Before any aligners can be created, digital impressions of the teeth must be taken so that each aligner fits perfectly. Thanks to modern advances in technology, goopy putty impressions are a thing of the past. Our iTero scanner takes thousands of images of the teeth from which very accurate digital models are made. From this information, a customized treatment plan is developed that provides us with the expected treatment time, and sets of custom aligners can then be designed based on your straightening needs.
What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign®
Clear aligner therapy is a great choice for patients who want to straighten their teeth using aligners that are hardly visible on the teeth. Invisalign uses a patented plastic material that is discreet and comfortable to wear for many hours at a time. Clear aligners are also completely removable, which means that there are no food or activity restrictions that patients have to keep in mind. Less in-office visits are required with Invisalign compared to traditional braces, and the appointment time is shorter as well since there are no wires that need to be adjusted or tightened.
What Is The Invisalign® Process?
The first step in the Invisalign process is a consultation with our team. During this visit, we’ll discuss things such as expected treatment time and your individual straightening needs, as well as answer any questions you may have. If Invisalign is decided as the best choice for you, digital impressions will be taken and treatment planning can begin including the design of your custom clear aligners.
While using Invisalign, aligners are to be worn for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours each day. It’s best to consistently wear these aligners when you are not eating, flossing, or brushing your teeth in order to keep your alignment treatment on the right track. Patients should also be sure to remove their aligners and brush them every day to keep them clear and clean. Aligners are switched out every two weeks, and our F.A.S.T. system only requires patients to schedule in-person appointments every 12 weeks to have their progress examined and to pick up their next series of aligners.
At Trinity Orthodontics, we’ve had great success using Invisalign to treat early-phase cases in young kids, eliminating the need for bulky appliances. Even difficult adult and kids’ cases, traditionally only treated using braces, are being treated with Invisalign and producing amazing results.
