what is Invisalign®?
It is a revolutionary procedure wherein a series of clear, removable aligners which are custom-made for your teeth, are changed every week or every two weeks, to enable proper alignment and straightening of your teeth by exerting precise pressure.
These aligners snug your teeth and are virtually invisible.
Every two weeks, bit by bit, with your custom made sequential aligner fitted; your teeth start to align slightly, vertically and horizontally, and even rotating them a bit if necessary.
These aligners are designed and engineered to use precise force in the right place at the right time in line with the intended treatment planned by Dr Alps Thakkar who uses a simulation software ClinCheck®, which is used to conceive the intended tooth movements and the final result.
Invisalign® offers several benefits over standard metal braces.
Invisalign Treatment Process
The process of changing your smile with Invisalign® clear aligners begins with a consultation with Dr Alps Thakkar.
Dr Thakkar conducts a thorough interview and clinical examination to decide the optimal course of treatment for your case.
In some instances, there is a blending of treatments that would be required to achieve the desired result.
Dr Thakkar’s expert skills to evaluate, design and plan your case in combination with other treatment procedures such as tooth implants, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, smile design or gum lifts would enable the discovery of a more personalised plan.
Dr Thakkar will use a digital scanner to create a precise 3D digital image of your teeth. In some cases, a physical impression would suffice.
Dr Thakkar will then outline a specific treatment plan, including the precise movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will take.
You’ll even get to see in a digital simulation how your teeth will move and also get a preview of your new smile.
The aligners ordered to your exact specification per the treatment plan will be custom crafted with the proprietary SmartTrack® material.
For achieving the best results, you should aim to wear them at least 22 hours per day while removing them for brushing, flossing and while eating food as may be necessary.
Every week or two as you change your aligners, the teeth will progressively start moving into the desired shape. We recommend a review appointment every four to six to ten weeks as may be necessary.
If you are questioning whether the Invisalign treatment can solve your issues then in most cases the answer is yes, it has proven to be an effective treatment for a broad variety of problems ranging from mild to complex.
These are some of the common concerns we alleviate with this treatment.
Your day to day routine with Invisalign Aligners
One of the real factors of convenience about Invisalign® treatment is the minimum impact it has on your day to day life. As the aligners fit snugly and are themselves so comfortable, you should have no difficulty wearing them for up to 22 hours a day without much effort; this is the recommended amount of time you should wear them for optimal results.
Oral Hygiene: Due to its removable nature, you can conveniently keep them aside for routine activities like brushing, flossing and enjoying your everyday meals.
Cleaning your aligners is easy too with the ‘Invisalign Cleaning Kit’. They can also be washed in lukewarm water and quickly brushed off.
Playing sports would be no different, as these aligners do not carry the risk or harm as you won’t have to deal with metal braces, wires or brackets.
Over a period, you will get used to it and to wear them would become second nature. Once the procedure is complete, you would absolutely be proud of the effort you put in to get the smile you have desired for so long.
