What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a groundbreaking clear-aligner therapy designed to gradually straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made, transparent aligners. While many believe that traditional metal braces are the only solution for correcting crooked teeth, Invisalign offers a hassle-free and efficient option. Not only can Invisalign fix your smile in half the time, but it also allows you to continue enjoying your favorite foods without restrictions.

The Benefits of Invisalign®

Easily Removable for Maintenance

Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are easily removable, allowing for convenient oral hygiene and maintenance. You can take them out to brush and floss your teeth, ensuring optimal oral health throughout treatment.

No Dietary Restrictions

With Invisalign, you won’t have to give up your favorite foods. Unlike braces, which can limit your food choices, Invisalign aligners can be removed during meals, allowing you to enjoy all your preferred dishes without worry.

Faster Results

Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth in half the time compared to metal braces. The advanced technology behind Invisalign allows for a more efficient and accelerated teeth-straightening process, providing quicker results.

No Intrusive Metal Wires or Brackets

Say goodbye to the discomfort and appearance of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made of transparent material, ensuring a virtually invisible treatment. You can confidently flash your smile without self-consciousness about metal wires or brackets.

Candidacy for Invisalign®

Invisalign is a suitable treatment option for many people seeking to straighten their teeth. During a consultation, Dr. Abbo will evaluate your specific dental needs and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you. In general, Invisalign can be used to treat various orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowded Teeth: When there’s insufficient space in the jaw for all the teeth to align properly.
  • Spacing Issues: When there are gaps or spaces between teeth due to missing teeth or abnormal growth.
  • Overbite: When the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
  • Underbite: When the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth.
  • Crossbite: When the upper and lower teeth do not align properly, causing some teeth to bite on the inside of the opposite arch.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Consultation and Treatment Planning

During your initial consultation, Dr. Abbo will evaluate your teeth to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option.

He’ll then use advanced 3D scanning technology to create a precise digital representation of your teeth. With this, he will design a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and desired outcome. You will have the opportunity to see a virtual representation of your future smile.

Wearing Your Custom Aligners 

Based on the treatment plan, Dr. Abbo will create a series of custom-made aligners exclusively for you. These aligners are made of a comfortable material that’s virtually invisible when worn.

You’ll wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks, as prescribed by Dr. Abbo. These aligners will exert gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into new positions. Dr. Abbo will monitor your progress and provide you with the next set of aligners in the series during regular check-ups.

Smile Transformation and Retention

As you progress through the aligner series, you will witness your smile transforming. Once the treatment is complete, Dr. Abbo may recommend a retainer to maintain the achieved results.

Caring For Invisalign® Aligners

Proper care of your Invisalign aligners is essential for maintaining clarity and hygiene. Here are some tips for caring for your aligners:

  • Remove Aligners When Eating or Drinking: Avoid eating or drinking anything (except water) while wearing your aligners to prevent staining and damage.
  • Clean Aligners Regularly: Gently brush your aligners with a soft toothbrush and rinse them with lukewarm water. Avoid using toothpaste, as it may be too abrasive and cause scratches.
  • Store Aligners Properly: When not wearing your aligners, store them in their designated case to protect them from damage or loss.
  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners to prevent bacteria buildup and maintain good oral health throughout treatment.
  • Avoid Hot Water: Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that can warp when exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, use lukewarm water for cleaning purposes.
