Benefits of Choosing Invisalign

As an orthodontic choice, Invisalign offers more than the promise of straighter teeth and a healthy smile. Here are the key benefits of choosing Invisalign treatment:

Aesthetic Benefits

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are crafted from nearly invisible clear plastic and present a discreet orthodontic solution. This aesthetic edge, an essential confidence booster, is precious for individuals conscious of their appearance. These clear plastic aligners ensure that your orthodontic treatment remains unnoticed mainly, allowing you to smile confidently throughout your treatment.

Comfort & Convenience

Invisalign aligners offer comfort and convenience that surpass traditional braces. Custom-made for a perfect fit, they eliminate the discomfort and irritation often associated with wires and brackets. Their removability simplifies eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. No need to worry about dislodged wires, food stuck in braces, or frequent emergency orthodontic visits, saving time and reducing discomfort.

Potential Health Benefits

Invisalign offers health benefits beyond a beautiful smile. The removable aligners allow thorough oral hygiene, simplifying gum health maintenance compared to traditional braces, thus, minimizing the risks of gum disease and tooth decay. Also, correcting misalignment and bite issues with Invisalign promotes overall oral health by reducing excessive wear and enhancing chewing and speech capabilities.

Ideal candidates for Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, including bite
problems like overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bites, crooked teeth, gaps, and crowded teeth. This treatment allows for a straighter, more balanced smile tailored to your needs.

Suitable candidates are dedicated to wearing aligners as instructed and adhering to the treatment

plan. Maintaining good oral hygiene and attending regular follow-up appointments are essential.

However, it’s important to note that traditional braces or orthodontic appliances may still be recommended

for younger children, as their jaw and facial bones are still growing and may require more aggressive realignment.
At Sand Lake Dental, our experienced team can assess your needs and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for
you or your child’s orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Process
at Sand Lake Dental

At Sand Lake Dental, our Invisalign process unfolds in simple steps designed for comfort and convenience.

Step 1: Initial
Consultation

Your journey towards a more beautiful smile begins with an initial consultation at Sand Lake Dental. During this meeting, one of our dentists will evaluate your dental health,
discuss your smile goals, and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment. We will answer any questions about the process and provide an estimated Invisalign treatment plan.

Step 2: Creating your 3D dental blueprint

When you decide to proceed with Invisalign treatment, a cutting-edge digital imaging system will be used to scan your teeth. These 3D images serve as the blueprint for your
custom aligners and help us map out precise, gradual teeth adjustments.

Step 3: Receiving Your Custom Invisalign Aligners

Once the digital model of your mouth is created, your personalized Invisalign aligners are expertly crafted. When it’s time, you’ll visit our office to collect your initial aligners and receive
thorough instructions on their usage. Alternatively, your initial set of aligners can be conveniently mailed to your home as soon as they are ready. Typically, you will wear the aligners for 20-22 hours daily, removing them solely for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Step 4: Routine Check-ins and Progress Updates

You’ll have regular appointments at Sand Lake Dental throughout your treatment – usually every 6 to 8 weeks. During these visits, we’ll check your progress and provide you with your
series’s next set of aligners. This process continues until your teeth reach their final, desired positions.

Step 5: Expected Duration of Your Invisalign Treatment

The duration of Invisalign treatment at Sand Lake Dental varies depending on the specific orthodontic issue being treated. On average, the treatment typically lasts between 12 to 18 months.
Please note that the typical duration for each individual can differ and will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.

Maintenance and Care of Invisalign Aligners

Taking proper care of your Invisalign system is crucial for maintaining your oral hygiene and ensuring the effectiveness of your treatment. Here are some critical steps and common mistakes to avoid.

Maintaining the cleanliness of your Invisalign trays is crucial for their effectiveness. Whenever you remove them, ensure to rinse off saliva and plaque. Brush gently with a soft toothbrush

and non-abrasive toothpaste, and consider Invisalign’s cleaning system or a denture cleaner for deeper cleaning. Remember to rinse them with water before reinserting. This routine can help ensure a healthy and bright smile during your Invisalign treatment.
Caring for your Invisalign aligners goes beyond just cleaning. Always store your aligners in the protective case provided when not in use to reduce the risk of loss or accidental damage. To prevent
discoloration and warping, refrain from eating or drinking anything other than water while wearing your aligners. Taking these simple steps can contribute significantly to the effectiveness and longevity of your aligners, contributing to the best possible outcome.
For a successful Invisalign treatment, it’s essential to avoid common mistakes that can compromise your treatment and the longevity of your aligners. Avoid cleaning your aligners with colored or
scented soaps to prevent discoloration or residue. Use lukewarm water, as hot water can deform the plastic. Please don’t leave your aligners in hot places or chew gum and smoke while wearing them to prevent damage.
