How Invisalign® Works?

Invisalign® is a popular orthodontic treatment using clear aligners to straighten teeth gradually. In Edmonton, Canada, the process begins with a 3D scan of the teeth, creating a precise digital model. A customized treatment plan is then developed based on the scan, outlining the step-by-step adjustments required. The first set of custom aligners is created, fitting snugly over the teeth and applying gentle pressure to guide them into alignment. Regular appointments are scheduled to monitor progress and provide the next aligners. In as little as a few weeks, visible improvements can be observed, with treatment typically lasting 6 to 18 months. Invisalign® in Edmonton is performed by skilled orthodontists who offer personalized care and support throughout the treatment journey, ensuring a comfortable and practical patient experience.

Proper Care and Maintenance of Invisalign® Aligners

Proper maintenance of Invisalign® aligners ensures effective treatment and good oral hygiene. Here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Clean your aligners regularly: Remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. Rinse them with lukewarm water and gently brush them with a soft toothbrush to remove accumulated plaque or food particles. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can be abrasive and damage the aligners.

  • Clean your mouth: Floss and brush your teeth thoroughly before reinserting your aligners. This helps prevent bacteria buildup and maintains oral health throughout the treatment process.

  • Avoid staining substances: While wearing Invisalign® aligners, it is best to refrain from consuming foods and beverages known to cause stains, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and coloured sodas. If you consume them, brushing your teeth before reinserting the aligners is important.

  • Handle aligners with care: Be gentle to avoid unnecessary damage when removing or inserting your aligners. Avoid using excessive force or biting down on them, which can cause cracks or fractures.

  • Store aligners properly: When you're not wearing your aligners, store them in their designated case. This protects them from damage, loss, or potential contamination.

  • Maintain regular oral hygiene practices: Brush your teeth at least twice and floss daily, even when wearing your aligners. This keeps your teeth and gums healthy throughout the treatment process.

  • Attend follow-up appointments: Keep up with your scheduled appointments with your Invisalign® provider. They will monitor your progress and provide any necessary adjustments or guidance.

  • Replace aligners as instructed: Invisalign® aligners are typically changed every one to two weeks, as directed by your orthodontist. Follow the prescribed schedule and replace your aligners accordingly to ensure the treatment progresses smoothly.

  • Avoid exposing aligners to heat: High temperatures can deform or warp the aligners. Therefore, avoiding leaving them in direct sunlight, hot water, or near any heat source is important.

  • Seek professional advice when needed: If you encounter any issues or concerns with your Invisalign® aligners, don't hesitate to contact us. We can address any questions or problems you may have.

By following these care and maintenance practices, you can maximize the effectiveness of your Invisalign® treatment and achieve the desired results while maintaining optimal oral health.

The Benefits of Invisalign® Treatment

Invisalign® treatment offers numerous benefits beyond just straightening your teeth. One of the key advantages is the virtually invisible aligners, which are discreet and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and maintain your oral hygiene with ease. This means you can enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions and brush and floss normally, reducing the risk of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

 

Another benefit of Invisalign® treatment is the comfort it provides. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth comfortably, with no sharp edges or wires that can irritate your mouth. Additionally, Invisalign® treatment typically requires fewer visits to the dentist compared to traditional braces, saving you time and inconvenience.

Invisalign® treatment is also known for its effectiveness in correcting various dental issues, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, and crowded teeth. The treatment is tailored to your specific needs, with each set of aligners gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. This personalized approach ensures optimal results and a straighter, more confident smile.

What Dental Problems Can Invisalign® Address?

Invisalign® is a versatile orthodontic treatment that can address a wide range of dental issues, providing a solution for many common problems that affect the alignment of teeth and the bite. Some of the dental problems that Invisalign® can effectively correct include:
 

  • Crowded Teeth: When there isn't enough space in the jaw for all of your teeth to fit comfortably, they can become crowded or misaligned. Invisalign® aligners gradually shift crowded teeth into their proper position, creating a more harmonious smile.
     

  • Spaces Between Teeth: Gaps or spaces between teeth, also known as diastema, can be closed using Invisalign® aligners. The aligners apply gentle pressure to move the teeth closer together, closing the gaps and improving the overall appearance of the smile.
     

  • Overbite: An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap significantly with the lower front teeth. Invisalign® can help correct an overbite by gradually moving the upper teeth back and the lower teeth forward, achieving a more balanced bite.
     

  • Underbite: An underbite is characterized by the lower front teeth protruding past the upper front teeth. Invisalign® can address an underbite by moving the lower teeth back and the upper teeth forward, improving the alignment of the bite.
     

  • Crossbite: A crossbite occurs when some of the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth rather than outside. Invisalign® can correct a crossbite by repositioning the misaligned teeth, ensuring they fit together properly when the mouth is closed.
     

  • Open Bite: An open bite is characterized by the upper and lower front teeth not coming together when the mouth is closed. Invisalign® can help close an open bite by gradually shifting the teeth into the correct position, allowing them to meet properly when biting down.
     

  • Misaligned Teeth: Invisalign® can also address general misalignment issues, where teeth are crooked or not in the correct position. By using custom-made aligners, Invisalign® can gently move misaligned teeth into their proper place, creating a straighter smile.
