Is Invisalign the best orthodontic aligner?

Invisalign is one of the most talked-about dental appliances in recent times. The fantastic new features that it brings to the table make it the most sought-after orthodontic aligner by patients and dentists worldwide. If you are planning to get your malocclusion treated, now would be the best time for you to do so. We will guide you through the treatment procedure and ensure you get the best smile with perfectly aligned teeth.

Things to Remember While Using Invisalign

Patients need to follow a few ground rules while using Invisalign for maximum effectiveness. Here are some of them:

  • Patients need to use Invisalign for at least 22 hours every day without fail. Meaning, Invisalign has to be on even while you go to bed and can be taken off only when you have to eat, brush, or other unavoidable circumstances.
  • After consuming anything, make sure to clean your teeth thoroughly before putting Invisalign back on. If any food debris is stuck in between the teeth, it could affect the treatment procedure and make it less effective.
  • Your dentist would give you a new set of aligners once every two weeks. This ensures the aligners are modified in structure to accommodate for the change in the alignment of the teeth.
  • Visit the dentist's practice for regular consultations so that your treatment can be kept track of.

Importance of Friendly Service

Visiting the dentist can make some patients feel quite nervous. It could be due to the misconception that any dental procedure that we perform will be painful, which is absolutely untrue. However, your opinion is bound to change when you visit our practice. The quality of service we offer, our highly trained staff, and most importantly, the vast experience that our dentists bring to the table makes our practice one of the most preferred ones in the Dunwoody, GA area.

When you visit our practice, we will conduct a thorough diagnosis of malocclusion. Based on the results, we will draw out a suitable treatment plan. The best part about Invisalign is that you will be able to see the graphic projection of how your teeth would look post the treatment procedure on a computer screen. The software backing Invisalign allows the dentist to show you how exactly your smile would look. Also, the dentist can track the movement of your teeth during the procedure, helping them align the teeth as required.

A Customized Plan Just for You

Invisalign treatment cannot be conducted in a generalized manner. It varies for each patient based on the severity of the condition and the time required to bring about the change in alignment. The time needed for the treatment and the number of aligners required for it will be determined during the initial consultation. Along with these, digital scans will be taken to act as a reference for fabricating the aligners. During the course of the treatment, we will provide you with a new set of aligners for every phase of treatment and also ensure the teeth are moving in the right direction. After the entire procedure, a customized retainer will be provided to ensure the teeth do not move back to their previous positions.
