What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a non-invasive orthodontic treatment that employs clear aligners for teeth realignment. In contrast to traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable, presenting an aesthetically superior solution.

This comfortable treatment involves a series of tailored aligners that allow for the gradual shift of teeth to optimal positions. Invisalign delivers an improved smile minus the hassle and cost of metal braces.

What Orthodontic Issues Can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign is versatile in correcting a spectrum of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overcrowded Teeth: Orthodontic treatment with align technology may be needed when there isn’t enough space for teeth to align.
  • Uneven Spacing: Clear aligners can address the gaps or spacing between teeth.
  • Overbite: Invisalign can correct situations where the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth.
  • Underbite: Invisalign aligners are helpful when the lower front teeth protrude beyond the upper front teeth.
  • Crossbite: Invisalign can help with aligning teeth that are misaligned laterally.
  • Open Bite: Clear aligners can resolve the gap between the biting surfaces of the front or side teeth when the back teeth bite together.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Clear aligner therapy can correct teeth out of their proper position.

While Invisalign is effective for various cases, severe misalignments may require alternative orthodontic solutions. A comprehensive consultation with Dr. Cannon can help determine the suitability of Invisalign for individual dental needs.

Candidacy for Invisalign

Determining if Invisalign is suitable for you involves various factors:

  • Alignment Issues: Invisalign addresses common orthodontic concerns like overcrowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, and misaligned teeth. However, severe cases might necessitate alternative treatments.
  • Commitment: Success with Invisalign depends on wearing aligners for 20 to 22 hours. Compliance is crucial for achieving desired results.
  • Consultation: A consultation with an experienced provider like Dr. Cannon helps evaluate if Invisalign aligns with your dental needs and lifestyle.

How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

Conducting the Initial Assessment

Dr. Cannon initiates the Invisalign journey by conducting a comprehensive consultation. During this visit, Dr. Cannon assesses your oral health and engages in discussions regarding your specific smile goals. To create a precise 3D image, Dr. Cannon takes X-rays, photographs, and impressions or digital scans of your teeth.

Crafting the Customized Treatment Plan

Dr. Cannon develops a custom treatment plan using the 3D image. Employing cutting-edge software, patients can preview the predicted movements of their teeth throughout the treatment process, offering a glimpse of the final result before commencement.

Supervising Aligners Fabrication

Dr. Cannon oversees crafting a series of custom-made aligners tailored to patients’ teeth based on the person and treatment plan. Each set of aligners, designed to exert gentle pressure on specific teeth, gradually guides them into their desired positions.

Guiding the Process of Wearing the Aligners

Once patients’ aligners are prepared, they receive a series of sets, typically changing them every one to two weeks. Wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours, removing them only for eating, drinking (excluding water), brushing, and flossing. Caring for clear aligners is simpler than caring for traditional metal braces.

Monitoring Gradual Progression

Patients experience the gradual shifting of their teeth as they progress through the aligner sets under Dr. Cannon’s guidance. Each clear aligner set contributes the same way to the incremental movement of teeth toward their intended alignment, which is done faster than traditional braces. Regular periodic check-ups are scheduled by Dr. Cannon to monitor progress and provide new sets of aligners.

How to Care for Invisalign

Maintaining your invisible aligners ensures their effectiveness and longevity. Follow these essential guidelines:

  • Remove Before Eating or Drinking: Always remove your aligners before consuming anything except water. This prevents staining and damage to the aligners.
  • Rinse Before Reinsertion: After eating, rinse your aligners and your teeth before placing the aligners back in your mouth. This helps maintain oral hygiene.
  • Regular Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth after every meal before reinserting the aligners. Additionally, clean the aligners gently using a soft toothbrush to prevent bacteria buildup.
  • Store Properly When Not in Use: When not wearing your aligners, store them in their protective case. This prevents loss or damage and maintains their cleanliness.
  • Soak Aligners Daily: Soaking your aligners once a day in a specialized cleaning solution or using a denture cleaner keeps them clear and free from bacteria.
  • Avoid Heat Exposure: Keep your aligners away from hot water or direct sunlight, as excessive heat can damage or warp them.
  • Handle with Care: Handle your aligners delicately to avoid accidental damage. Avoid bending or forcefully adjusting them.
