HAPPY INVISALIGN PATIENT

Invisalign

Are you bothered by crooked teeth, but dread the thought of wearing braces? 

Let Dental Solutions in Warsaw, IN, design an Invisalign® treatment plan to give you the smile you want without uncomfortable metal braces.

Teens and adults alike love the comfort and convenience of Invisalign, the nearly invisible treatment for straighter teeth.

The Best of Both Worlds

If you want a straighter, more attractive smile, but want to avoid the wires and metal brackets that come with traditional orthodontics, Invisalign at Dental Solutions in Warsaw may be just what you are looking for.

Both traditional orthodontics and Invisalign can improve your smile. But Invisalign's smooth, comfortable, and nearly invisible trays let you smile throughout treatment and avoid the difficulties that come with metal braces. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds. 

Invisalign offers a number of benefits over traditional orthodontics, including:

Discreet Treatment

Invisalign's transparent aligners are nearly invisible during use, meaning you can confidently wear them throughout the day without worrying whether everyone is staring at your mouth full of metal.

Comfortable Fit

The aligners used to straighten your teeth are made of smooth, medical-grade plastic molded to fit your teeth precisely. There are no metal brackets and no metal wires, so there's nothing that will snag or irritate the soft tissue in your mouth. 

Fits Your Lifestyle

While you need to wear your aligners for the majority of the day and at night, they are removable so that you can eat, floss, and brush your teeth easily. You can remove your aligners, which are also called "trays," for special occasions.

Fewer Appointments

Periodic check-ups will be performed to assess your progress, but trays do not require the numerous adjustment appointments that are necessary with traditional braces. 

Eat What You Like

Braces require patients to avoid foods that are likely to get caught in the wires and brackets of traditional braces. With Invisalign, there are no off-limits foods or drinks.

Easy to Care For

Cleaning is as simple as taking a brush to the plastic trays. However, most people find brushing and flossing around braces is both difficult and time-consuming.

How Does Invisalign Work? Simplicity at Its Finest

Unlike braces, Invisalign's effectiveness does not rely on metal wires and brackets but on a nearly invisible technology — clear, plastic aligners that fit around teeth. During an examination with the dentist, you can learn whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign. We use 3-D imaging to design a comprehensive treatment plan, as well as give you a sneak-peek at how your smile will look post-treatment. 

Molds of your teeth will be taken, and a set of custom, removable aligners will be prescribed to gently and gradually move teeth into their desired positions. As your teeth move, one set of aligners will be replaced with the next in the series every two weeks or so. Each patient's needs vary, but treatment typically averages between 12 and 18 months.

Can Invisalign Solve My Problems?

Nearly every patient who enters our Warsaw office seeking to cosmetically straighten their teeth is a good candidate for Invisalign treatments. When determining your candidacy for Invisalign, the dentist will examine your smile to determine if you have:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded, overlapping teeth
  • Overbite, underbite, or crossbite

Candidates should be in good oral health. Plus, they should also be willing to wear the trays for the mandatory 20 to 22 hours each day. If you require preparatory treatment, we can meet your needs in our office.

Many patients are attracted to Invisalign’s reputation as the more comfortable and discreet alternative to traditional braces. Unfortunately, in cases of severe misalignment, Invisalign may not be the best orthodontic method. If you are not a good candidate for Invisalign, the dentist can let you know what other orthodontic procedures, such as braces, would help you get the smile you want.

Planning

Once you have been approved as a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Stofer will take scans or x-rays of your teeth. Molds may also be taken. These will then be used to manufacture your custom aligners, which will arrive a few weeks after your appointment.

Your First Aligners

When you come in for your first aligners, Dr. Stofer will have you place the trays on your teeth to ensure that they fit correctly. He will also give you general advice about wearing your aligners and how to take care of them. The total length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your concerns and the number of trays prescribed for you. Most Invisalign treatments last for 12 to 18 months.

Check-Ups

Each tray is designed to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day and for two to three weeks. Throughout your treatment, Dr. Stofer will schedule check-ups to ensure that your treatment is going according to plan. Each new aligner is designed to move your teeth a little closer to the correct position than the preceding tray. As you place each new tray, you will likely feel pressure on the teeth for a short period.

Special Attention

In some cases, Dr. Stofer may place tooth-colored buttons on specific teeth so the aligner trays can better grip them. If crowding is an issue, a minimally invasive process called interproximal reduction (IPR) may be performed to create space for your teeth to move more freely.

Aftercare

Once your treatment is complete and you are 100 percent satisfied with your cosmetic results, a retainer may be created using a mold or digital image of your straightened teeth. This retainer, which is typically only worn at night, helps ensure your teeth do not move out of alignment again.

A Few Simple Rules ... for Using Your Aligners

Patient inserting Invisalign tray

It is important that patients work cooperatively with their dentist to ensure the best results. They should also have realistic expectations about what their smile will look like after treatment. Here are some common questions about wearing and caring for Invisalign aligners:

How to Place the Aligners

Insert your aligners starting at the front and working back toward your molars. Gently push your aligner using your fingers until the tray fits snugly against all of your teeth. This ensures proper “seating” of your aligner trays. Avoid biting as a means of positioning the tray.

How Long Should I Keep My Aligners In?

Invisalign trays must be worn for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in unnecessary discomfort once you wear the aligners again. Failure to wear your trays for the required time also risks lengthening your treatment timeline. You may remove your trays for short periods while eating, brushing, taking photos, or for other special occasions.

How Often Should I Clean My Trays?

Your trays should be cleaned with a toothbrush twice a day, preferably in the morning and at night. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can leave a white residue. Instead, we recommend using the Invisalign Cleaning System, gentle liquid soap, or retainer-cleaning products.
