The invisible braces – Invisalign is the game changer in classic orthodontics
Many people had long wanted the possibility of a tooth correction without wearing unsightly braces or brackets on their teeth for usually more than 1 year. Aligners are usually an optimal alternative. In most cases, Invisalign can correct misaligned teeth such as an over- or underbite. Even slightly rotated teeth can usually be treated with the clear alignments. Our practice Dr. Karamousli in the middle of Küsnacht near Zurich specializes in treatments with aligners and, with the most modern Invisalign devices, offers the quality of treatment that makes for a straight, beautiful and satisfying smile
We have put together a few clarifying points about transparent aligners to give you a brief overview of how you can get a new smile with aligners. Here are the most important points for the success of an Invisalign treatment
Transparent aligner – always wear the aligner
Since the aligners are removable, it may initially tempt you not to wear them long enough a day. To ensure success, the rails should be used at least one day per day. 22 hours so that they can do their work like braces.
Dental hygiene when wearing Invisalign aligners
The teeth must always be cleaned after a meal before the splints are reinserted. No matter how big or “small” the meal is, cleaning your teeth is essential to prevent tooth decay or infection.
Always clean “invisible” aligners thoroughly
The aligners do not tolerate toothpaste, as they contain abrasives. Sanding the surface of aligners is counterproductive for two reasons. Firstly, bacteria settle in the micro-grinding points and, secondly, the important pressure points of the aligner are grinded and the function is impaired. Therefore it is recommended to use the rails. Instead, it is advisable to use a mild soapy solution.
Coffee, tea and red wine – not only a no-go at Invisalign
Tooth-coloring drinks are generally difficult to use in aligner treatments. Unless you are ready to brush your teeth after each consumption, because these drinks not only stain your teeth, but also the splints if you do not remove them during consumption. In addition, the subsequent dental hygiene of course minimizes the time the splints are worn. A registered mail of consumption is advisable here.
Quality: Not all aligners are created equal
There are now a large number of offers on the market that promise completely uncomplicated treatment with the best prices. However, you should look carefully here. There are many differences. So here are a few to look out for:
- The impression of the dentition is carried out today with the most modern 3D scanning technologies. The examination is completely painless. A scanning head is guided over the entire jaw and creates a perfect 3D model of your teeth. Invisalign has perfected this scanning technology over the last 20 years, so that a jaw impression in a malleable material cannot be compared with the quality. So make sure that you do not make an impression in the form of a plastic material, but an actual on-site 3D scan. You are welcome to contact us at any time for a scanning appointment. In Küsnacht near Zurich we have the most modern Invisalign scan device to ensure optimal treatment.
- Treatment should always be done by an orthodontist. Why? Because the software that calculates the alignments cannot predict the actual possible displacements of the tooth. An orthodontist, on the other hand, knows how much a shift within the tooth bar is possible without consequences. When considering treatment, always make sure that you are accompanied.
- A treatment doesn’t just consist of a couple of splints. A misconception that often arises due to the very simple representation of a treatment with aligners is that one “only” needs the splints. For correct rotation and correction, fine holding points on the teeth are necessary, depending on the degree of correction. These are attached by the orthodontist and give the splint the right starting points for tooth correction. Successful treatment usually cannot do without them and are usually the reason why a disappointing result can arise after the period of wearing. Get advice if you are thinking about aligners. This is the only way to ensure that the desired result will be achieved in the end.
Last but not least, it should be mentioned that treatment takes time and your compliance. Regular wearing of the splints and also dental hygiene are important to achieve success. It has become known that some customers actually lost weight after wearing aligners. This is probably due to the dental hygiene, which one must give to the teeth after every meal. Maybe you will consider doing without the piece of chocolate every now and then.
Braces, aligners, invisible aligners?
To explain it in a few words. There are still the classic braces and aligners that you used to have as a child. These have now become a bit more modern. The invisible aligners, also known as invisible aligners, have become very popular in everyday life due to their inconspicuousness. However, braces are still used when a dental splint, such as Invisalign aligners, cannot do this job due to very strong displacements in the jaw. Therefore, the treatment ability of the jaw for an aligner treatment must be carefully checked beforehand. The Invisalign aligners are manufactured using a modern 3D scan of the entire jaw – much more precisely than a dental impression could show. In addition, an X-ray is used to check whether the teeth can even reach the desired position – it depends on how much space the jaw offers. It is better to come to the practice for an examination – and let us show you what is possible, as with Digital Smile Design.
