What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a dental device for addressing various orthodontic complications, including underbite, open bite, and other types of malocclusions. The treatment involves creating a set of custom aligners that you wear over your teeth for at least 20 hours daily. They’re an excellent alternative to traditional braces since they’re less bulky and significantly less visually intrusive.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Enhanced Discretion with Almost Invisible Aligners

These aligners are virtually invisible when worn over the teeth, providing enhanced discretion compared to traditional braces and other orthodontic treatments. That way, you can confidently go about your daily activities without drawing unnecessary attention to your orthodontic treatment.

Unmatched Comfort for a Snug Fit

Invisalign aligners offer exceptional comfort, surpassing the experience of wearing braces. To ensure a precise fit, dentists use advanced digital scanning technology or dental putty to capture impressions of your teeth. These impressions are then used to custom-manufacture aligners tailored to your exact specifications. The result is a snug and comfortable fit that minimizes discomfort during the treatment process, allowing you to carry on with your daily routine without the irritation often associated with traditional braces.

Maintaining Oral Health with Ease

Unlike braces, which can pose challenges when it comes to brushing and flossing, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed. Simply take them out, perform your regular oral hygiene routine, and pop them back in. This flexibility promotes better oral health by allowing you to effectively clean your teeth and gums without any obstructions.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Consultation and Treatment Plan

The Invisalign treatment starts with a dentist’s consultation. The consultation involves an examination of your teeth and oral cavity. The dentist in Saratoga Springs & Gloversville will also conduct a series of tests and take X-rays to determine your candidature for Invisalign aligners. If you qualify as a candidate, the dentist will create a treatment plan before proceeding to the next step.

Impression Taking and Aligner Fabrication

Here, the dentist will use a digital scanner or a putty-like material to get impressions of your teeth. They may also take photographs to supplement the aligners. The dentist then sends these impressions to a laboratory to manufacture your aligners.

Invisalign Fitting

Once your aligners are ready, the dentist will schedule an appointment to fit them. During this time, the practitioner will sit you down on the dental chair and carefully place the aligner over your teeth. They’ll check the fit and ask you how comfortable it is. They’ll then register your bite to make sure the teeth align correctly.

Post-Treatment Instructions

As mentioned earlier, Invisalign aligners come as a set. You’ll have to swap out your aligners every week for a tighter-fitting pair. The dentist will give you instructions for taking care of your aligners and how to maintain proper oral hygiene during treatment. Treatment takes anywhere from three to eighteen months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental coverage for Invisalign varies from one insurer to the next. However, most of them consider Invisalign a cosmetic procedure and won’t provide coverage. Some insurers, on the other hand, will only cover Invisalign if deemed medically necessary.

Dentists usually recommend Invisalign for adults and teenagers with dental malocclusions. These malocclusions include overbite, underbite, and overcrowding. You may also need Invisalign aligners if you have large gaps between your teeth.
