Candidacy for Invisalign Advanced Clear Aligner System

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

  • Crowded Teeth: When there’s insufficient space in the jaw for all the teeth to align properly.
  • Spacing Issues: 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.

The Invisalign Process

Wearing Invisalign is a step towards achieving a straighter and more confident smile. Dr. Eli Abbo, at Davie Advanced Dentistry, guides you through a personalized treatment process designed for optimal results and maintaining good oral health.

Consultation and Treatment Planning

Your Invisalign transformation begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Abbo. Utilizing advanced 3D scanning technology, he creates a precise digital representation of your teeth. This serves as the foundation for a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and desired outcome. During this phase, you’ll have the opportunity to visualize a virtual representation of your future smile.

Wearing Your Custom Aligners

Based on the treatment plan, Dr. Abbo crafts a series of custom-made aligners exclusively for you. These aligners, made of a comfortable and virtually invisible material, are worn for about one to two weeks each, as prescribed. With gentle pressure, they gradually move your teeth into new positions. Regular check-ups with Dr. Abbo ensure your progress is monitored, and you receive the next set of aligners in the series.

Smile Transformation and Retention

Witness the transformation of your smile as you progress through the aligner series. Once the align technology treatment is complete, Dr. Abbo may recommend a retainer to maintain the achieved results. Adhering to the recommended retention plan is crucial for preserving your beautifully aligned smile over the long term.

Caring for Invisalign Aligners

Proper care of your Invisalign trays is crucial for maintaining clarity, hygiene, and the effectiveness of your treatment. Here are some essential tips to ensure your Invisalign journey is a success:

  • Remove Aligners When Eating or Drinking: To prevent staining and damage, it’s crucial to remove your Invisalign aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water. This simple practice helps keep your aligners in pristine condition throughout your treatment.
  • Clean Aligners Regularly: Regular cleaning is key to preserving the transparency of your aligners. 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, diminishing the clarity of the aligners.
  • Store Aligners Properly: When not wearing your aligners, store them in their designated case. This not only protects them from damage but also minimizes the risk of misplacement. Storing your aligners properly ensures they remain in the best possible condition for effective use.
  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Before reinserting your aligners, it’s essential to brush and floss your teeth. This practice helps prevent bacteria buildup and ensures good oral health throughout your Invisalign treatment. A clean and healthy mouth contributes to the success of your teeth-straightening journey.
  • Avoid Hot Water: Invisalign aligners are crafted from a thermoplastic material that can warp when exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, use lukewarm water for cleaning purposes to prevent any distortion or damage to the aligners.

Special Considerations for Invisalign Wear

Consistent Wear

For optimal results, it’s crucial to wear your Invisalign consistently, as prescribed by Dr. Abbo. Consistent wear ensures that your teeth receive the gradual pressure needed to move into their desired positions.

Regular Check-ups

Attend regular check-ups with Dr. Abbo to monitor your progress and receive the next set of aligners in the series. These check-ups are essential for your doctor to track the transformation of your smile and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Smile Transformation and Retention

As you progress through the aligner series, you’ll witness your smile transforming. Post-treatment, Dr. Abbo may recommend a retainer to maintain the achieved results. Adhering to the recommended retention plan is vital for ensuring the longevity of your beautifully aligned new smile front.
