What is Invisalign?

As already mentioned above, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that adjusts teeth perfectly. Invisalign uses clear aligners that are refined from computerized views and impressions of your mouth, to change the position of your teeth. 

Whilst traditional braces use fixed wires to make possible the teeth reposition into a correct place, Invisalign aligns the teeth by using a series of molds that force, quite literally, your teeth into their new and ameliorated position.

What is the difference between Invisalign and traditional braces?

Both Invisalign braces and traditional braces are known in the dentistry field as ways to improve the alignment of your teeth to generate a square smile and of course, better oral health. While traditional braces have been used commonly by orthodontists and dentists over the years, Invisalign is more of a new concept that intends to meet the needs of modern and “younger” people. Invisalign, like any other treatment, has pros and cons, but whether they are the right choice for you or not, is your decision.

Despite having some affinities, Invisalign and braces have much more differences when put side by side for comparison:

  • Clear vs visible: Invisalign aligners are made from see-through materials, which makes them virtually invisible to other people. On another hand, traditional braces are made from metal wires and elastic bands, which makes them more visible and can cause insecurity for some patients.
  • Convenience: Invisalign braces can be removed from the mouth following the guidelines suggested by your orthodontist or dentist- they suggest for the trays be worn 20 to 22 hours a day. Contrary to Invisalign, traditional braces cannot be removed as they are connected to the teeth by wires.
  • Treatment length: The Invisalign treatment is essentially shorter than the one for traditional braces. Because of how Invisalign works, patients have to wear the trays for six to eighteen months, whilst the traditional braces have an average time of two years.
  • Cost: In basic standards, Invisalign tends to have higher prices than traditional metal braces, though the upper costs are not quite different. Ceramic braces are usually the most expensive ones. Contact us to schedule an appointment and learn the exact guide of the Invisalign cost.

Who is suitable for Invisalign?

Invisalign is one of the dentistry advancements that is suitable for almost anyone and everyone who wants to improve their smile or arrange and align their teeth.

Teens

Invisalign can help correct misalignments in most teenagers’ teeth. Invisalign braces are particularly useful because teenagers often tend to have self-consciousness issues. Due to its shorter treatment time and easier use, Invisalign is the ideal treatment for teenagers who want to get their confidence back.

Adults

Nowadays, more and more adults are choosing Invisalign braces to correct their teeth. Invisalign braces are ideal for adults who want flexibility with their alignment procedure and for those adults who want to reach that improved smile without the need for visible metal braces.

The Invisalign process

Let’s move to the Invisalign process in a more detailed, in-depth look. Regardless of the slight changes in the process, depending on your situation, below you will find a general detailed step-by-step treatment that is used for most people during their care at our clinic:

Initial consultation

At the initial consultation, we invite you into our clinic to have a face-to-face discussion with our specialized and highly trained dentists. 

Throughout this visit, we will discuss how the Invisalign process goes, how Invisalign works, and what is its likely cost for you. This discussion will help you decide whether this is the right option for you or not.

X-rays and photographs

Once decided if you wanna go on with this procedure, there will be taken x-rays (during the initial consultation).

We will take several x-rays and photographs of your mouth, teeth, and face from different angles so we can have a detailed look into your mouth mechanics to create an idea of what our work will consist of.

In special cases, there will be taken a lateral cephalometric x-ray. Lateral cephalometric x-rays are popular within the dentistry field and they provide elaborate images of the jaw and cheekbone relationship. This is also helpful in how we will go about aligning your teeth.

Preparatory work

Each patient has a whole different procedure on how Invisalign braces are made. Some patients may need some small composite patches which are applied to each tooth so they can help Invalisign’s aligners to grip onto each tooth and move them. Some patients might not need the patches at all. The patches, however, are made from the same composite material that fillings are made out of and they will be removed by the end of the Invisalign process, without causing any discomfort or pain.

First fitting

The first feel of your Invisalign braces is taken on the same day as your preparatory visit is done. The aligners are modeled from your imprints and they do feel precarious when first put on.

During this stage, our dentists will review the fit and make adjustments or try different molds. To see if you are comfortable with your aligners they will ask questions such as, are you comfortable, are the aligners hurting you, and if you can sense any movement?

To be noted: at this point is it completely normal for the new Invisalign braces to feel strange in your mouth. They should feel tight but not painful- the tightness is the best indicator to start the realignment process.

Also, please be acknowledged that if you feel any type of discomfort you should let your dentist know.

Changes to your mouth

When you first start wearing your clear aligners you will feel a bizarre change happening in your mouth. It is however a perfectly normal change and it is part of the whole process of getting used to Invisalign. The same effects happen when using traditional braces.

The change happens due to the teeth being forced into a new position and the strange feeling should stop a few days after every tray change.

Furthermore, Invisalign braces sometimes cause embellished sensitivity in the teeth, This also should subside after a period, and help there are used kinds of toothpaste designed specifically for sensitive teeth. Make sure to ask your dentist for recommendations.

Your speech might also change slightly on the first days of wearing Invisalign. This might happen because the tongue doesn’t have enough space to move in the mouth. Nonetheless, once the tongue and the whole mouth get used to Invisalign, it all becomes easier and your speech becomes clearer.

How long does an Invisalign treatment last?

How long your Invisalign treatment lasts depends entirely on a variety of elements. One of the most conspicuous elements is how many hours you wear your aligners daily.

Orthodontists advise that Invisalign treatment can take from 6 up to 12 months, depending on your case. There does not exist a one-size that fits to determine how long your treatment will last. The reason behind it is that the very patient has tooth alignment issues.

A rule well-known and wise to follow is that adults should wear Invisalign aligners for a longer period than teenagers. That is because teenagers’ teeth are easier to move and highly responsive to the treatment. Au contraire, adults tend to have more complex cases and are less responsive. In response to that, treatment can take a little longer.

Which are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • Short-term habits for long-lasting effects:

The biggest challenge when wearing Invisalign braces is creating good oral habits. Getting used to taking them out every time you eat or brush them for longer than natural teeth, does take a little time to get used. However, these short-term habits lead to long-lasting effects.

  • Almost virtually invisible:

As mentioned before, Invisalign braces, as per their name, are almost invisible aligners or braces and hard for anyone to notice if you are wearing them

  • Food and drink enjoyment:

Invisalign makes it possible to remove them whenever you want, unlike metal braces. During the treatment, you are free to eat and drink whatever you want.

  • Proper dental hygiene:

Invisalign can be easily brushed and flossed.

  • Comfortable:

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are much more comfortable. They are custom-made for each patient for the sole purpose of being comfortable.

  • The final result:

The final result of Invisalign is the main reason why most people nowadays use them. They give you the chance of a bright and corrected smile while giving you back also your confidence.

  • They do not affect your social life:

Due to them being thin and transparent, Invisalign braces do not prevent you from your daily activities.

Which are the disadvantages?

  • You need to be disciplined:

Quite easily explained: If you are not someone disciplined about your oral hygiene and health this is not the right choice for you. Invisalign braces require special dedication and time.

  • Inconvenient:

Taking your aligners out before eating or drinking anything other than water, can be frustrating.

  • Cost:

Though people typically ask if getting braces is cheaper than Invisalign, you should know that their prices do go hand in hand, with Invisalign aligners having a little higher prices. However, do note that these prices depend also on the geolocation of a country, and in Albania, due to the low taxation system and low salaries, the prices are easily affordable.

What dental problems can Invisalign fix?

Invisalign clear aligners are most commonly used to treat the following cases:

  • Excessive yawning: yawning can normally cause painful chewing and speech impairment.
  • Crossbite: the cruciate ligament can cause one more of the upper teeth to close inside the lower teeth which can result in tooth decay, gum disease,  or bone loss.
  • Sparse teeth: the lack of protection from the teeth can lead to gum problems, periodontal pockets, and a higher risk of periodontal disease.
  • Tooth congestion: crowded teeth can degenerate after a period and lead to crooked teed. This type of congestion can then result in plaque build-up, tooth decay, and a heightened chance of gum diseases.
  • Incomplete tooth closure: it can meddle with the normal operation of the front teeth or molars and induce tooth decay.

Frequently asked Questions

Invisalign treatment requires a lot of time investment. It is essential to wear your aligners for no less than 22 hours a day. If kept out for longer than the recommended time each day, your teeth aren’t going to move as much and the treatment is going to take longer than desired or planned and it might even fail.

Invisalign clear aligners can be chosen for the following reasons:

  • Excellent result in a short amount of time
  • The aesthetics, different from traditional braces, are not strained by the non-attractive appearance.
  • It can be easily removed
  • It does not irritate the gums in any way
  • It does not cause any discomfort

Invisalign clear aligners should be cleaned twice a day (in the morning and at night) and they can be cleaned before or after you brush your teeth. The cleaning process helps to remove bacteria that have built up during the night or the day. If not sufficiently cleaned, the aligners begin to smell.

Cleaning should be done with a toothbrush and no toothpaste, or toothpaste advised by your dentist. The aligners should also be rinsed throughout the day after being taken out. This will help them not become smelly and they should be cleaned after every meal to avoid discoloration.

As you already know, everybody’s mouth is different, and otherwise, built. Whilst some person’s teeth might move quite effortlessly, someone else’s might be slightly tough. In no way can we tell how your mouth will react to changes until the Invisalign treatment begins. This is precisely why the treatment period also lasts differently in different people/ patients.

Yes. When your treatment is fully done, there will be no need to wear the Invisalign aligners. Nevertheless, braces will need to be fitted to keep them solid and stable. Retainers are, on the other hand, removable and designed to help maintain the new position of your teeth and prevent them from going back to their old positions.

The phase of maintaining the smile you have already been offered is commonly known among orthodontists as the passive phase. This is because, after the removal of the traditional braces or the Invisalign ones, tend to return to their former positions. Teeth stabilization does take a long time and during this time maintenance is essential, especially during the first year of treatment. After the first year, things become easier and more relaxed.

The tendency of teeth to return to their former position depends on and changes from one patient to another. In other words, the speed of tooth recurrence in the initial position, can in no way be predicted. 

Nonetheless, the maintenance of the result is kept intact and is achieved with the use of transparent braces (mobile ones) that the patients wear at night (up to ten hours). The immobilization can also be enhanced by using a glued special orthodontic wire from the inner surface of the front teeth, even when transparent braces are not used.

Another key factor in maintaining the Invisalign clear aligners is brushing them twice a day and when they aren’t being worn they should be kept in a special case that is provided by the dentist. Or else, they might be in danger of being broken or lost. 

During this passive phase of maintaining the aligners, it is also important to do regular checkups and go visit your dentist or orthodontist three times a year.
