The Stress of Crooked Teeth

Some misaligned bites or crooked teeth cause headaches, infected gums, bad breath, difficulty chewing or talking, and other issues—along with emotional pain. They may also limit your:

  • Work Interactions: Do you ever feel like you don’t get as much time with key colleagues? Or avoid projects or activities that would help your career because of your teeth?
  • Recreation Time: Maybe dental issues hold you back from introducing yourself to new people or going to exciting events.
  • Wellbeing: Misaligned teeth can lead to infections because they’re hard to clean. And if your smile embarrasses you, it can affect your self-esteem.

The Exciting Advantages You Get With Invisalign Aligners

What is Invisalign?

You might have heard that Invisalign straightens teeth, but what else do you get with it? Below are four additional ways Invisalign trays can help:

  • Improved oral health.
  • Cavity prevention.
  • Bite correction.
  • Less pain and inflammation.

Regardless of why you want Invisalign, you will get numerous benefits because straighter teeth protect your teeth from bacteria buildup, leading to a strong smile. Invisalign is a patient favorite for cosmetic treatment. It is quick, simple, natural-looking, removable, and provides extremely efficient care.

Get a New Bite

Correcting a bite problem can protect your teeth for the rest of your life. Your teeth and gums will be easier to clean and won’t wear down as quickly. Invisalign clear braces have the technology to fix the following bite problems:

  • Overbites: When the top teeth jut too far in front of the upper teeth, they can leave a large gap.
  • Underbites: The lower teeth rest in front of the upper teeth.
  • Cross Bites: Teeth in the bottom and top rows overlap in random positions—some in front, some behind.
  • Open Bites: When the top and bottom teeth don’t touch.

Treatable Concerns

There are many reasons to get Invisalign including overbites and preventing cavities. Plenty of issues can be fixed with one simple treatment, Invisalign. All of the most common problems that Invisalign solves are:

  • Misaligned or crooked teeth.
  • Crossbite.
  • Overbite.
  • Underbite.
  • TMJ disorder (lockjaw).
  • Gaps in teeth.
  • Open bite.
  • Crowded teeth.
  • Compromised oral health.

Invisalign can straighten your teeth, bring them closer together, and realign the jaw to prevent cavities, keep the jaw strong, and give you a beautiful straight smile.

Invisalign vs Braces

Invisalign braces are superior to metal braces in these ways:

  • They Protect You: Invisalign braces use no metal and have no sharp edges. They can be taken off when you brush your teeth, making hygiene easier.
  • Aligners Aren’t Painful: Each aligner is customized to move your teeth a little further without needing to be tightened.
  • They’re Fast: For many simple cases of crooked teeth, Invisalign treatment can be done in just 6–18 months!
  • They Allow a Free Diet: You’ll be able to eat the foods you like without getting anything stuck in brackets.

Perfect for Both Adults and Teens

Regardless of your age, you are a great candidate for Invisalign as long as you have all of your adult teeth grown in to ensure long-lasting results that are not interrupted by new teeth. The clear aligners make Invisalign a great cosmetic option for any age because they make teeth look and feel as natural as possible without the embarrassment that braces can cause.

If you want to get ready for senior photos, a high school reunion, or a wedding — or just increase your self-confidence — Invisalign is wonderful for teens and adults.

Improve Dental and Oral Health

Invisalign orthodontics isn’t just about looking better. It’s also about getting healthier and preventing dental issues. Here’s how Invisalign treatment can help you become and stay healthy:

  • Making Cleaning Easy: Once teeth are straightened and evenly spaced, thorough cleaning will be easier.
  • Giving Your Teeth Healthy Spacing: The correct alignment of your teeth can prevent issues like TMD (temporomandibular disorder).
  • Improving Digestion: When teeth are in the right places, they work together to chew your food.

How Long Does Invisalign Last?

Invisalign can easily last your entire life as long as you are wearing your retainer as recommended by the dental team. You can smile proudly for years to come if you wear your retainer as instructed and as needed. Invisalign treatment can give you long-lasting, superb results.

However, if you don’t wear your retainers, your teeth can gradually shift back to their original positions. That's why maintaining good oral hygiene habits and continuing to visit your dentist for regular checkups is important, even after your treatment is complete.

Invisalign After Braces

If you’ve already had braces and your teeth have since shifted, you may be postponing treatment because you don’t want braces again. Invisalign might be the solution you’ve been waiting for. If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, even if you’ve already had braces, Invisalign can get you the smile you want without discomfort or obtrusive metal wires.

Invisalign uses incredible technology to give you a completely customized plan to ensure you get the results you want. Braces cannot give you the same assurance.

Associated Invisalign Benefits

Whether you want to improve your smile's appearance or enhance your oral health, Invisalign may be the ideal cosmetic treatment for you. Invisalign offers numerous benefits, including long-lasting, customized results.

One of the main advantages of Invisalign is its ability to reduce the risk of cavities, which can result from bacteria buildup between crooked teeth. By straightening your teeth, Invisalign can effectively block bacteria from accumulating and causing tooth decay. As a result, you can enjoy a healthier, stronger smile.

Choosing an Invisalign Dentist

When seeking any dental treatment, look for a qualified dentist that uses advanced technology. Research is key to identifying the right provider. You can visit their website, contact their office, or schedule a consultation to learn about their experience, approach to dental care, and use of technology.

With Invisalign, choose a dentist who can create customized aligners and treatment plans tailored to your specific needs and goals. After all, the purpose of cosmetic treatment is to enhance your self-confidence and improve your dental health.

What Is the Invisalign Treatment Process?

Invisalign Consultation

Meet with Dr. Radkey to discuss your Invisalign treatment. Our consultation process assesses if Invisalign aligners are suitable for your teeth and jaw.

During this consultation, we’ll provide:

  • A professional exam.
  • 3D scans of your teeth.
  • A preview of your future smile.
  • A review of your medical and dental records.
  • A unique design of aligners using Invisalign software.
  • A professional recommendation for treatment.

Printing Your Aligners

Using data from millions of past patients, digital software helps Dr. Radkey plan your treatment so your teeth move into the correct positions.

The Invisalign manufacturers will use 3D printers to create a series of aligners that are customized for your case. These aligners will apply the right pressure to your teeth in exactly the right places.

When your aligners arrive, we’ll provide instructions on how to wear them.

Keeping the Aligners on

You’ll get the results you want if you wear your aligners for 22–23 hours a day. Just follow the instructions your dentist provides.

When to wear your aligners:

  • When giving a presentation.
  • While playing a sport.
  • Most of the day.
  • While sleeping.

When to take them off:

  • While you eat.
  • Playing a brass instrument.
  • When brushing and flossing your teeth.

Wearing your aligners as much as possible will bring your dream smile to life.

Switching Between Aligners

Don’t worry, this part is easy. We’ll give you a simple schedule follow that will tell you when to switch to the next pair of aligners. You’ll typically wear each aligner for 2–3 weeks. Each time you switch aligners, just take out the previous pair and put in the next.

Each pair of aligners will move your teeth a certain amount. The next pair will pick up at that point and move your teeth a little more.

Retaining Your Smile

Retainers are necessary to help your teeth stay in place. These retainers don’t move your teeth, only hold them in place. You’ll only wear them while you sleep.

You’ll enjoy having your dream smile during the following activities:

  • While practicing your hobbies.
  • At work and school.
  • During recreation.
  • On dates.

Then at night, you’ll simply pop in retainers—which are similar to aligners—then remove them in the morning.

Results of Invisalign Treatment

Everyone who looks at before and after photographs are amazed at the change in appearance. What people do not always realize is how much of a difference Invisalign can make to someone’s overall confidence.

You can easily see the change between the two photographs, but a lot of people feel like completely new people once they have an aligned and corrected smile. Invisalign can help you smile confidently.

Invisalign Questions and Answers

Invisalign isn't right for every patient, particularly younger children who may benefit more from traditional braces.

Invisalign patients need to be ready to:

  • Attend occasional checkups to monitor progress.
  • Adhere to the recommended wear schedule.
  • Commit to the process for 6-12 months.
  • Maintain proper oral hygiene.

To find out if the Invisalign system will work for you, schedule an Invisalign consultation appointment.

Invisalign’s benefits far outweigh the side effects. The results of Invisalign are lifelong, whereas the side effects are temporary and can be solved quickly. The most common side effects of Invisalign are:

  • Dry mouth.
  • Irritation.
  • Discomfort or pain.

These can be easily managed with pain medicine, ice packs, and staying hydrated. Consult your dentist if the problems persist or if you have additional side effects.

The initial consultation takes an hour; quick checkups every 6 weeks. Your teeth may start moving in weeks. Some patients finish in 6 months, but factors like jaw alignment, gum health, diet, or genetics can lengthen treatment up to 12-18 months.

The following complex cases may require longer treatment:

  • Severe crowding.
  • Bite alignment issues.
  • Large gaps.

Invisalign usually works much faster than traditional braces.

After treatment, your teeth and jaw will be permanently shifted to their new positions. Wearing retainers at night will maintain your ideal smile and dental health. Retainers made of high-quality materials are comfortable and shouldn’t move your teeth.

Your dentist can give you the tools and knowledge to keep your new smile for life. Let them know if you have any questions or concerns after Invisalign treatment.

ClearCorrect is another cosmetic treatment that works like Invisalign to correct misaligned teeth and to solve abnormal bites to give you a natural and simple transition.

Invisalign is often recommended for more complex cases, such as those involving significant bite issues. ClearCorrect is typically recommended for less complex cases. Both give you straight teeth, though they have slight differences in manufacturing.

Some dental aligner companies offer remote treatment without meeting a dentist and using basic impressions at home. This option can result in less successful outcomes for even simple cases.

Choose Invisalign instead. Invisalign dentists have years of experience using advanced Invisalign 3D scanners and software. They will thoroughly examine your oral health and help you every step of the way to get your dream smile.

Traditional metal braces may have a lower price tag than Invisalign clear braces, but Invisalign treatment offers many advantages:

  • Faster treatment.
  • The ability to eat a diverse diet.
  • Almost-invisible aligners.
  • Mimization of pain and embarrassment.

Investing in Invisalign can improve your health, confidence, and well-being. At Magnolia Dental, we strive to offer affordable prices that reflect the experience of our team.
