The Invisalign Clear Aligner Process

Invisalign is ideal for patients with mild to moderate teeth misalignments. If your dentist determines that clear aligners are right for you, they will make mould your teeth to create your custom aligners. EDentist uses state-of-the-art computer modelling techniques to make aligners that fit your teeth precisely along each step of the process.

Our computer software designs several sets of aligners that you’ll wear over your treatment. The final set of aligners will be straight, even teeth that you and your dentist agree on during your free consultation. Your dentist will give you new aligners every few weeks, according to this treatment plan. Each set of aligners is progressively straighter to gradually shift teeth into alignment.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Once the dentist gets impressions of your teeth, they make a three-dimensional image that allows them to outline the separate stages of your tooth alignment process to create the aligners. These aligners are clear, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate the soft tissues inside your mouth.

Your clear aligners should stay in your mouth for 22 hours a day at minimum. Make sure you don’t lose track of time when you take them out. At EDentist Dandenong, our expert dental technicians can walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Our staff has plenty of experience helping clients with Invisalign in Dandenong. Call us or visit our office to learn more.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are lighter than other orthodontic treatments, and the application is much simpler–with significantly less discomfort. Clear aligners are also very cost-effective, and more insurance companies are beginning to cover them every day.

With braces, some foods can lodge underneath them and become difficult to get out. Invisalign is removable and easy to clean. Some other benefits of clear aligners include:

Alternative to Metal Braces

Most adults avoid getting braces because they don’t want a mouth full of metal. Invisalign aligners are clear and barely noticeable. You won’t have to feel awkward about wearing them in public.

Custom Fitted

Clear aligners sit flush against your teeth, so they don’t take up any extra space in your mouth while you’re wearing them. There’s no discomfort because the ultramodern moulding makes the plastic retainer fit your teeth perfectly.

Removable and Convenient

Clear aligners are more convenient than traditional braces. You can remove them whenever you want to eat or brush and floss your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Treatment duration varies with every patient and often depends on the severity of the orthodontic concern. Generally, Invisalign treatments last between 12 and 24 months. However, some patients with minor issues complete their Invisalign treatment in six months.
By taking a detailed mould of your teeth, our dentists can create clear aligners that perfectly fit your mouth.
