The invisible brace – Invisalign is the game changer in classic orthodontics
Many people had long wished for the possibility of straightening their teeth 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 overbite or underbite. Even slightly rotated teeth can usually be treated with the translucent alignments. Our practice, Dr. Karamousli, located in the heart of Küsnacht near Zurich, specializes in aligner treatments, using the latest Invisalign devices to provide the quality of treatment that makes for a straight, beautiful and satisfying smile.
We have put together a few clarifying points about transparent dental trays to give you a brief overview of how aligners can help you get a new smile. Here are the most important points for the success of Invisalign treatment
Transparent dental splint – Aligner “always” wear
Since the aligners are removable, it may initially tempt you not to wear them long enough during the day. To ensure success, the splints should be applied at least once a day. worn for 22 hours so that they can do their job continuously, 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 the teeth is essential to prevent tooth decay or infection. In addition, you should schedule the intervals of your professional dental cleaning in intervals of 6 months at the latest, because wearing a splint often slightly accelerates the formation of tartar and this in turn negatively affects the tooth movements.
Always clean “invisible” dental trays thoroughly
The aligners do not tolerate toothpaste under any circumstances, as they contain abrasives. Grinding the surface of aligners is counterproductive for two reasons. Firstly, bacteria settle in the micro-grinding points and secondly, you grind the important pressure attachments of the aligner and impair its function. Therefore it is recommended the rails. Instead, it is recommended to use a mild soapy water.
Coffee, tea and red wine – a no-go not only with Invisalign
Tooth-staining beverages are generally difficult with aligner treatments. Unless you are willing to brush your teeth after each consumption, because these drinks not only stain your teeth, but also your splints if you do not remove them during consumption. In addition, the subsequent dental hygiene naturally minimizes the wearing time of the splints. A registered letter of consumption is advisable here.
Quality: All aligners are not created equal
There are now a variety of offers on the market that promise completely uncomplicated treatment with best prices. However, a close look should be taken here. There are many differences. So let’s list a few that you should watch out for:
- Today, the impression of the dentition is made using the latest 3D scanning technologies. The examination is completely painless. A scanning head is guided over the entire jaw to create a perfect 3D model of your teeth. Invisalign has perfected this scanning technology over the last 20 years, so a jaw impression in a moldable material cannot compare to the quality. So make sure you don’t make an impression in the form of a plastic material, but an actual on-site 3D scan. For a scanning appointment, please feel free to contact us at any time. In Küsnacht near Zurich, we have the most modern Invisalign scanning equipment to ensure optimal treatment.
- Treatment should always be performed 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 shifting is possible without consequences within the dental arch. If you are thinking about treatment always make sure that you are accompanied.
- Treatment is not just a few splints. A misconception that often arises due to the very simple presentation of treatment with aligners is that you “only” need the splints. Fine holding points on the teeth are necessary for correct rotation and correction, depending on the degree of correction. These are attached by the orthodontist and give the splint the correct starting points for the tooth correction. A successful treatment usually cannot do without them and they are usually the reason why a disappointing result can occur after the wearing period. Get advice if you are thinking about aligners. This is the only way to ensure that the desired result is achieved in the end.
Last but not least, treatment takes time and your compliance. Regular wearing of the splints and also dental hygiene are important to achieve success. It has sometimes been reported that some customers have actually lost weight by wearing aligners. This is probably due to dental hygiene, which is mandatory for the teeth after every meal. Perhaps one considers then nevertheless now and then to do without the piece of chocolate.
Braces, dental splint, invisible dental splint, aligner?
To explain it in short words. There are still the classic braces and dental splints that you used to have as a child. These have become somewhat more modern in the meantime. However, the invisible aligners, also named as invisible dental splints have become very popular due to their inconspicuousness in everyday life. However, braces are still used when a dental splint, as well as Invisalign aligners, cannot do the job due to very severe shifts in the jaw. Therefore, the treatment capability of the jaw for aligner treatment must be carefully checked beforehand. Invisalign dental trays are made after a state-of-the-art 3D scan of the entire jaw – much more accurate than a dental impression could represent. In addition, an X-ray is taken to check whether the teeth can reach the desired position at all – here it depends on how much space the jaw offers. Come to the practice for an examination instead – and let us show you directly what is possible, as with Digital Smile Design.
